Direct flights from Stansted to Athens take around three hours and 40 minutes, with services usually most readily available in the morning or early in the evening. The later flights will arrive in Athens at midnight, which may not be ideal for most travellers, especially considering the public transport options once you land. There is generally quite good availability for those looking to fly from London to Athens, so there should be little need to take a connecting service. If absolutely necessary, a Turkish city such as Istanbul is the most likely destination for a stopover. Athens International Airport is located around 12 miles east of the city centre, which is easily reached with public transport. The airport’s rail station lies adjacent to the terminal building, offering train and metro services into the city. Take Metro Line 3 to head into central Athens, with a 40 minute journey time to Syntagma station. Trains depart every half hour between 6.30am and 11.30pm seven days a week, with tickets available from machines at the station or the ticket office. The suburban rail system connects the airport to Larissis station, the port of Piraeus and Kiato. There are also four bus lines that serve the city centre and greater area, the X93, X95, X96 and X97. Those preferring not to take public transport can take a taxi from the rank found at exit 3 of the arrivals level, at a cost of around 35 euros. Alternatively, those wishing to hire their own vehicle can do so from car rental firms Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Hertz or Sixt; which are all located at the arrivals level of the main terminal building.
