Detailed directions for your Santorini Airport transfer

Santorini Airport (JTR), also known as Thira Airport, is the largest airport in the South Aegean Sea. The shortest route from Santorini Airport to the city centre of Fira is 7 km, meaning the journey will take approximately 10-20 minutes in a Santorini Airport taxi.

Once your driver exits the airport compound, they will turn right to merge onto the Mesarias/Archeas Thiras highway. Later on, your driver will turn right onto Firon/Ormou Perissis Avenue, which heads directly to the city centre of Fira. From here, they will use the local roads to take you to the door of your hotel, or as close to it as possible if it’s on a pedestrian road.

Why a Santorini Airport taxi is the top choice

The most secure and reliable way to get from the airport to your hotel in the city centre is a Welcome Santorini Airport taxi. You can secure a guaranteed fixed fare with no hidden fees and even rely on 24/7 customer support.

With a pre-booked Santorini Airport transfer, you can leave all your worries at home and be sure that you’ll be taken care of the second you land.

Santorini Airport taxi prices

Local taxis at Santorini Airport don’t use taximeters, so fares are generally fixed depending on your destination. The estimated cost of your transfer from Santorini Airport to Fira is €30-€35.

Keep in mind that there may be additional fees added for travelling during the holidays and if you have excess luggage. Plus, rides from the airport to Fira or Oia tend to be more expensive. That’s why we recommend booking your Santorini Airport taxi with Welcome Pickups to avoid extra charges and access unbeatable prices.

That’s why we offer travel extras such as our skip-the-line tickets for some of the most famous attractions in Santorini, such as the Museum of Prehistoric Thera, The Santo Wines and the Santorini Arts Factory. You can pre-book with us and your driver will hand-deliver them on the day of your pickup.

We also offer exciting Sightseeing Tours throughout Santorini so you can see more of the city your way. You can choose between a full or half-day tour and explore some fascinating spots such as the sunset city of Oia or the Ruins of Kasteli Fortress. You pick your stops, how long you spend at each and when you begin and end your tour. 

Frequently asked questions

Are there taxis at Santorini Airport?

Yes, there are local taxi drivers at Santorini Airport offering fixed-fare rides to the city centre of Santorini. The journey into Fira will cost around €25. However, there are less than 40 taxis on the island, which means that you may find it difficult to find a taxi, especially during peak season. To secure a set-rate fee and to guarantee a trained, English-speaking driver will be waiting for you when you land, why not book your Santorini Airport transfer with Welcome Pickups?

Where do I meet my driver?

To make sure you can easily find your driver, 24 hours before your flight, you will receive an email containing their name, a photo and their phone number. Then, on the day of your pickup, you will find them waiting just outside of the arrivals hall, holding a sign with your name on it.

What do I do if my flight is delayed?

There’s absolutely no need to worry if your flight time suddenly changes. We provide all of our drivers with live updates on your flight’s schedule, so they will always be there when you land.

Is the cost of a Santorini Airport taxi per person?

No, all of our costs are per vehicle, never per person. You can add up to 4 people to our sedans and 8 to our minivans for one set-rate fee.

How do I find a Santorini taxi during my stay?

Finding a taxi in Santorini isn’t as easy as on other islands, due to the small number of available cars. However, you can hail a taxi from the street, walk to a taxi rank or call.
