re: civil airport!!!!!

Larisa doesn't have 300,000 people; the main city itself has about 100,000 people in it, with the suburbs and surrounding municipalities perhaps adding about 100,000: that's a total of 200,000 people.

Now, if you have a close look at the map, this airport has a few serious problems:

1. Its layout has left no provision for civil (general and commercial) aviation installations (terminals, maintenance hangars etc) at all.

2. The runway is OK, but the exits and entrances were not designed for commercial aircraft; at best, it would suit business jets up to the size of a Bombardier Global 8000, and you can pretty much forget planes like a Boeing 737 or an Airbus A320 (and its family) or bigger. It would need major modifications and upgrades.

3. There's the Nea Anchialos National Airport outside nearby Volos (IATA: VOL, ICAO: LGBL), which already has a terminal.
