Athenians and tourists passing through the Greek capital have been waiting for the direct link connecting the port of Piraeus to the Eleftherios Venizelos airport since the summer of 2015. After almost three years of delay the direct link is ready to connect the two major locations.

The port of Piraeus will finally be connected to the Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos, as of 1 February 2018.

The long awaited metro station of Piraeus will become a terminus for the Proastiakos suburban railway, connecting travelers to and from the islands with the Spata airport in 60 minutes.

The same route will also link the cities of Corinth, Halkida and Kiato to the port.

The service is expected to run every 15-20 minutes.
