Directions for your Transfer from Athens Airport
Athens airport (ATH) is named after Eleutherios Venizelos who was a strong political figure and benefactor of the aviation industry. The airport of Athens is the largest and busiest airport in all of Greece. Without traffic, taking an Athens airport taxi from the airport to the city centre takes approximately 25 minutes. Your taxi ride will begin by following Attiki Odos to Periferiaki Imittou until you reach the Avenue Alimou Katechaki. Once there, your driver will use the local streets, to reach the exact location of your hotel in the city centre.
Taking an Athens Airport Taxi to the City Centre
Forget about navigating complicated public transportation options or standing in long queues in the hot Greek sun. Instead, choose the most hassle-free transfer from Athens airport, a taxi. Once you’ve safely stored your personal belongings and got comfortable in your air-conditioned car, you can sit back and relax while Welcome Pickups takes care of the rest.
Flat rate fee for your Athens Airport Transfer
Taking an airport taxi to Athens is charged using a flat-rate fee. The 25-minute journey will cost you 38€ during the day and 54€ late at night. However, it’s important to keep in mind that as these prices are decided by a taxi syndicate, they are subject to inflation during high-season and extra charges for things such as excess luggage and waiting times. To ensure you have a flat rate fee you can count on, we recommend you book your Athens airport transfer in advance.
