Currently the Kastelli airfield is a military base, used as an air force training location as well as a refueling stop for military freighters flying between the United States and the Middle East. Kastelli is also used as a diversion airport to the current Heraklion (HER) facility when the weather is bad or a problem with routine flight operations there.
