Fixed taxi fares to and from the airports of Athens, Thessaloniki and Kavala to the corresponding city centres, have been reduced, in line with broader cuts in public transport fares introduced on June 1.
The announcement which was made by the Transport Ministry notes that in Attica, taxi rides from or to the Athens International Airport (AIA) will now cost €35 (down from 38) in the hours between 05:00 and 00:00 and €49 (down from 54) in the hours between 00:00 and 05:00. The fares relate to a ride between the AIA and locations within the traffic restriction ring ("daktylios") around the centre of Athens.
Similarly, taxi rides to and from Thessaloniki International Airport now cost €18 (down from 20) in the hours between 05:00 and 00:00 and €26 (down from 28) in the hours between 00:00 and 05:00. The fares relate to departures or arrivals within the city centre.
Taxi journeys to and from the Kavala National Airport are reduced to €35 (down from 38) at all times of the day. Here too, the taxi fares relate to departures and arrivals at the city's centre.
These reductions are in effect from June 1 until October 31.
