Abstract: Technological developments worldwide are contributing to the improvement oftransport infrastructures and they are helping to reduce the overall transportcosts. At the same time, such developments along with the reduction intransport costs are affecting the spatial interdependence between the regionsand countries, a fact inducing significant effects on their economies and, ingeneral, on their growth-rates. A specific class of transport infrastructurescontributing significantly to overcoming the spatial constraints is theairtransport infrastructures. Nowadays, the importance of air-transportinfrastructures in the economic development is determinative, especially forthe geographically isolated regions, such as for the island regions of Greece.Within this context, this paper studies the Greek airports and particularly theevolution of their overall transportation imprint, their geographicaldistribution, and the volume of the transport activity of each airport. Also,it discusses, in a broad context, the seasonality of the Greek airportactivity, the importance of the airports for the local and regionaldevelopment, and it formulates general conclusions.
