Greece is one of the most famous tourist destination in Europe.

Air seats to Greece have increased by 10 percent this year as not only are low-fare airlines choosing the country as a destination despite Athens International Airport’s high costs, but established carriers are now returning to the country’s airspace in response to its growing tourism figures, said Ekhatimerini.
