Rent a Car Paros Airport
The small Paros National Airport is located in the southwest of Paros and 10 km away from Parikia. The current airport replaced the old one that was first used in 1982. The new airport has undergone many changes since then, like the expansion of the runway and a well-equipped terminal. The new airport was created because Paros received a lot of visitors and it needed a significant upgrade, so it opened in 2016 and it now has much better facilities for visitors.
In the future, there are plans suggesting that Paros Airport will become an international airport that will receive flights from other EU countries. Right now, the only direct flights to Paros Airport come from Athens. The airport’s location makes it ideal for exploring Pounda, Aliki, and Parikia. With our top-quality Fly & Drive service, your rental car will be just outside the airport for you to take it and drive to your hotel. Driving in Paros with our well-maintained cars and using Paros' functional road network is now a piece of cake. Try us today!
