353 MNAS was deactivated by December 2009 and their Orion aircraft were withdrawn from use. In 2016 an upgrade program for the Orions was started and they will re-enter service during 2018. The unit will transfer to the Hellenic Navy.
The A109E that were used by SEAV were transferred to 358 MED by October 2012.

Elefsis is home to the transport fleet of the HAF that was bolstered by the arrival of the Alenia C-27J Spartan. Despite the delivery of these agile tactical transportes, the C-130B and C-130H Hercules is still going strong for the years to come
