The importance of air transportation, on an international level, is obvious and connected to the form of culture and life in the modern times. Especially in Greece, airplane, as means of transport is important due to the geomorphology of the country and the slow rhythm of modernization of ground means of transport. The building of air-station as an architectural project, while it has to correspond to a variety of complex programming and functional demands, it expresses, at the same time the symbolic idea of journey, of flight, but it has to act as a cultural site-point. The works of many well-known foreign architects include a large amount of interesting air-station buildings, mainly in international, as well as in smaller airports, all over the world.
