The Port of Piraeus will directly connect by train with Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos” as of February 1, and will be in full swing by the time Summer season kicks off for 2018.

According to new reports, as of next month, Piraeus will become a terminus for the Proastiakos suburban railway, connecting the port to the airport at Spata, northeast of Greece’s capital city.

The trip between the airport and the port is expected to take around one hour, which is much less than the current time it takes by bus or the ISAP/Proastiakos-metro combination between the two locations.

The new line will also connect Piraeus to Kiato in northern Corinthia and Halkida in Evia.

Also as of February 1, service on the Proastiakos will be much more frequent between Piraeus and central Athens, running every 15-20 minutes during rush hour instead of once an hour.

More details about ticket prices and terminal locations at the port of Piraeus will be announced shortly.
