Arriving at Santorini Airport

Flights to Thira Airport land on a small runway. Once the plane is ready for disembarkation, passengers will either head to the terminal on foot or hop on small airport buses, depending on the distance from the terminal. Once you’re inside the terminal, follow the relevant signage, guiding you to passport control, baggage claim, and customs. EU citizens travelling inside the Schengen zone don’t need to go through passport control. If it’s your first time travelling to Greece, it’s best to check the requirements regarding travel documents.

Once you collect any luggage, if you have nothing to declare, you can use the green customs exit and head to Thira Airport Arrivals Hall. Otherwise, you need to stop at the customs station; don’t forget to check local customs restrictions before travelling if you’re unsure what needs to be declared.

Santorini Airport Transport

Santorini Airport is about 5 km from Fira, the island’s capital, and about 17 km from Oia, Santorini’s most famous village. You can reach either by taking the local bus (KTEL), which departs directly outside Santorini Airport hourly during the summer.

If you prefer to enjoy some privacy and reach your accommodation directly, you can take an airport taxi from the rank in front of the terminal or pre-book a private airport taxi to have a driver waiting for you inside Santorini Airport Arrivals Hall.
