Porto Cheli Airfield (IATA: PKH, ICAO: LGHL) is a private airfield located near Porto Cheli, Argolis, Greece. It belongs to company T. Alexiou S.A. and it has ceased operations since 2008.

History

The airfield mainly operated during the 1960s and 1970s. It belonged to businessman Tasos Alexiou. During the Greek military junta, there was interest in construction of a new airport closer to Porto Cheli, but it was never realized due to scandalous compensations that were given. In 2004, HCAA closed the airport due to required maintenance issues and in 2008 that the airfield's certificate expired, it was not renewed, thus closing the airport indefinitely.
