    To & From Athens Airport

    by hawkhead Written Feb 3, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The E95 bus runs to and from Athens airport to Syntagma Square in central Athens seven days a week, 24 hours a day. The fare is Euros 3. Depending on the time of day the journey can take up to an hour or perhaps more. The bus is to be found on the right as you exit the terminal building. Tickets are bought at the booth nearby. Do NOT forget to validate your ticket in the box inside the bus. From Syntagma Square you will be able to connect easily to the metro.

    Best way to get to the Airport

    by Q-Man Written Nov 3, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you want to save money on taxis and you are staying in Plaka or near the Acropolis, there are daily buses that go to the Airport. The fare is less that 4 Euros and the trip takes about an hour in rush hour traffic.
    The bus starts at the corner of Othonos and Filellinon, across from the Parliament building in Plateia Syntagmatos. The ticket booth is also located at the bus stop or you can pay on the bus.

    Express Bus

    by witness_wannabe Updated Oct 30, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Probably the best (and cheapest...) way to get to/from the Airport. There are six lines: X92 (to/from Kifisia), X93 (to/from the two bus stations: Liosion and Kifisos), X94 (to/from Ethniki Amina metro station), X95 (to/from Syntagma Square), X96 (to/from Pireus), X97 (to/from Dafni metro station). Fare: 3.20 euros one way. No additional charge for the luggage. Busses have ample room (and a special rack) for the luggage. You have to validate your ticket on the bus. If you do not know Athens, ask the driver to stop where you want. Busses in Greece stop on request only. Example: There are (supposedly....) seven stops to reach the Liosion bus station from the airport (busses to Delphi, Meteora, etc), but, at the end of season, the driver will hardly ever stop at each one of them. Procedure at the airport: take exit 5; turn left to buy your ticket at the booth. If the booth is closed, you will be able to purchase your ticket from the driver. The bus stops are next to the booth.

    Airport Bus

    Since my flight home was so early the metro didn't even run, I had to take the aiport bus. It was super easy to find and ran quite efficiently.

    You'll find the busses on the right hand side of Syntama square (looking up at the Parliment building)

    Airport bus to Athens city center

    by AcornMan Updated Feb 13, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The new Athens airport is a bit of a misnomer because it is actually very far from Athens. The easiest way to get from the airport to the Plaka (other than taking an expensive taxi) is to take the bus. Once you arrive at the airport you'll have no trouble finding the bus (the 95 bus to be specific) and getting a ticket. UPDATE: There is now a train from the airport too, but I have no experience with it.

    The bus will drop you off at the National Gardens on the east side of the very busy Leof Vasilissis Amalis street. From there it's a bit of a hike to the eastern edge of the Plaka, but not too bad if you're not loaded down with a ton of luggage. If you're staying in the center or western part of the Plaka you would be well advised to catch a taxi from the bus stop to your hotel though, as it would be a longer walk for you.

    E-95

    by J_Antunes Written Dec 25, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The bus E-95 is a very good choice to get to Athens for all of those who reach the city through the Eleftherios airport. After reaching the airport you just need to follow indication to the buses and buy the ticket to the old man of the ticket house that, doesn't speak any English. As you’re a foreigner he knows that you want a ticket, and even if you want something else, a ticket you’ll get. It’s a bit odd that in a city with so many English speaking people the guy how sells tickets in the main airport doesn't know any.
    The bus is quite new, clean and comfortable (although if it gets crowded I guess it will be a terrible trip). The price of the ticket is €2,90 and gives you access to all of Athens public transports for 24 hours. The journey takes about 1 hour and takes you to Sintagma square in the very heart of Athens.

    The 94 to Amina

    There are 3 bus lines connecting the airport to various important points. Despite your destination, if you are using a bus to go, you need to exit out of doors 4 and 5 in the main terminal building. Look on the ground for a big sign that says "BUS". Not that hard right?

    Major Destinations:*
    Ethniki Amina Metro
    Line E94 This metro stop is where there is a connection between the metro travel and airport bus travel. Beware that the metro stops running at midnight, and that the bus stops before that.

    Syntagma Square:
    Line E 95 From the city center at Syntagma Square and Parliment, this bus makes stops at Sofias Avenue, Mesogion Avenue and Attiki Odos befoer terminating at the airport.

    Buses 24 hours, about every twenty minutes but every 40 minutes after midnight.

    Pireaus
    Line E96 Coming from Pireaus' main square, this bus makes stops at Posidonos Avenue, Varis-Varkizas, and Varis-Koropiou Roads before ending up at the airport.

    Buses 24 hours, about every twenty minutes but every 40 minutes after midnight.

    Kiffissou Street Bus Terminal
    Bus E93 connects the airport with the bus terminal at Kiffissou street. Buses run about every 35 minutes (65 at night)

    E94-E95-E96 tickets cost 2.90 Euro and is valid for 24 hours on all public transport.
