Ellinikon International Airport (IATA: ATH, ICAO: LGAT), sometimes spelled Hellinikon (Greek: Ελληνικόν) was the international airport of Athens, Greece for sixty years up (built in 1938) until 2001, when it was replaced by the new Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos. The grounds of the airport are located 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) south of Athens. It was named after the village of Elliniko (Elleniko), now a suburb of Athens. The IATA code formerly used for the airport is now in use for Eleftherios Venizelos Airport.
*Fun fact : The 1986 Menahem Golan movie, The Delta Force, used the exterior of the airport in the Athens International Airport scene which one of the Lebanese terrorists exits a taxi.
