Current conditions at Athens Airport


I'm plan on arriving at the Athens airport within the next week and am concerned about the airport being super congested and busy right now due to the flight evacuations from Tel Aviv and the extra flights that have been added to transport people to other locations by United, Delta, American etc..
Does anyone have real time information on the situation at the Athens airport?

Thank You,

No direct knowledge, but it makes no sense for US based carriers to fly from Tel Aviv to Athens.

You would cancel your trip to Greece because ATH might be busier than usual?

Where did you get the information that evacuations from Israel are causing problems at Athens airport?

Athens Airport welcomes between 2.5 and 3.5 million passengers per month. How could a few thousand more passengers create problems?

Especially since it's Cyprus which is currently used as a maritime hub to evacuate American citizens from Israel (and everything is going well)

And if it can reassure you, 250 Greek citizens in Israel returned to Greece last week between October 9 and 12
