Heraklion airport is one of two serving domestic and foreign flights on Crete, a popular tourist destination in the Mediterranean Sea.

The airport’s two runways will be off service from 0830 GMT on Feb. 19 to 1300 GMT on Feb. 24 for tarmac maintenance, the Greek civil aviation authority said in a statement.

Only emergency helicopter flights for the transport of patients will be allowed over that period, it added.
