Flights from Santorini

Santorini is a volcanic island located 200 kilometers southeast of Greece's mainland, famous for its unique architecture. Santorini is served by Santorini National Airport, located at a distance of 7 kilometers from Fira, its capital. It is a small airport that handles both civilian and military planes.

Flights from Santorini depart from the Santorini National Airport, which can handle only six civilian planes at a time. The airport is located just outside the village of Kamari on the island of Santorini, and it began its operations in 1972. Santorini National Airport is one of the few airports on the Greek Islands that are alternatively served by ferries.

Getting to Santorini airport

The Santorini to Athens flights take off from the Santorini National Airport, which is located approximately 7 kilometers from the center of Fira, the capital of Santorini. No matter where you are on the island, you will have to take a bus to Fira bus stand, and from there, take the bus to the airport. The journey can take up to 30 minutes and buses run only five times a day. Bus timings are frequently adjusted to suit flight departures, and you will have to make advance enquiries to know the exact times. Alternatively, you can hire taxis and shared private-transfers, which are usually expensive.

Getting to Athens

One of the oldest cities of the world, Athens has history and culture at every corner of its streets. With the Acropolis looming above the city, one can't miss the glorious past of this ancient metropolis. After you visit and explore all the monuments and ruins, discover a more contemporary and urban side of Athens. Spend time at the boutiques, galleries and cafes at Kolonaki, just below the Lycabettus hill. Spend time at the Syntagma square, which also doubles as a shopping destination. Groove to the latest EDM when the night falls, at one of the many nightclubs in Psyri, an Athens neighborhood known for its live music taverns, bars, and clubs.

Arriving to the city centre

Getting from Santorini to Athens is easy on a flight. You will land at Athens International Airport, which is 33 kilometers from Athens city center. To reach Syntagma Square in the center of Athens, hop on the blue line (Line 3) of Athens Metro, and get off at the Syntagma Station. You can also take bus routes X93, X95, X96 and X97, which connect you to the various parts of Athens city, including its central areas.
