Sitia is the alternative gateway to Crete for private travel.
Zela Aviation in October 2022 proudly announced a cooperation with the municipality of Sitia, Crete aiming to develop the current route network of Sitia’s Airport. Sitia Aiport will be established as an “alternative gateway to Crete”. Sitia Airport (IATA code: JSH) is located on the east side of the beautiful island of Crete. The Airport began operations in June 1984 and a brand-new terminal building was delivered in 2016. The airport is operated by the Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority and offers competitive charges for Business Aviation Jets.
Zela Aviation’s airport development team has been working closely together with the municipality of Sitia to promote the airport domestically and in Europe for commercial aviation activities. Summer Slots in nearby airports in Crete such as Heraklion (HER) and Crete (CHQ) are not as attainable compared to Sitia. Sitia’s airport can help to assist in better slots to support tourist activity for all regions in Crete. Sitia Airport also opens opportunities for operators to base their aircraft in Sitia for a short time period rather than Chania or Heraklion where parking is of a bigger issue. Basing an private aircraft in Sitia for a short time will still give a prime location for flights around Greece and the wider eastern Mediterranean region.
With the summer season approaching, Zela Jet the subsidiary of Zela Aviation is keen to boost incoming private flights to Sitia’s airport. Zela Jet’s strong domestic sales presence in the market gives the airport the right tools and foundations to help traffic grow. Zela Jet has access to a wide variety fleet of private airplanes and helicopters to support private flights to Sitia’s.
