The Terminal at Kalamata International Airport
The airport has a single one story terminal with one checking hall, two arrivals halls and two departures halls serving domestic and international travelers.
During the summer the airport is open every day, but the opening hours vary during the different periods of the summer. Some days the airport closes for an hour or two in the middle of the day, at what time and for how long varies, and on some days it opens early on other days later, and the same with the closing time. This is because the opening hours are related to scheduled flight times. During the winter season the airport only opens for the occasional flights that operate to or from the airport.
The airport is always closed at night.
