Flights to Istanbul

Flying out of Athens

Sometimes trying to find cheap airfare can be a challenging task, but Orbtiz.com makes searching through multiple airlines easy by comparing an assortment of airlines fares at the same time. This gives the budget-conscious traveler several options and makes it easy to find and book cheap flights from Athens.

Athens Major Airport

The major airport serving Athens is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport, which is located about 22 miles from downtown Athens. Several major airlines service the airport, including Delta, US Airways, British Airways, KLM, Aeroflot, Air France, United, American, and several more. Aegean Airlines and Olympic Air use Athens as a major hub. At Orbitz.com, travelers can compare the prices from most of these airlines, so they receive the best deals and options that suit their needs.

Parking Options at the Airport

The airport has several parking options, including short-term parking, long-term parking, and valet parking. The first 20 minutes are free in the short-term and long-term lots, which is ideal for dropping off passengers. A free shuttle bus will transport passengers to and from the airport terminals.

Transportation to the Airport

Several options are available for people to get to the airport, including taxis, the metro, rental cars, and buses. Taxis do not charge a flat rate as in some cities; instead they charge a metered rate, which is higher during nighttime hours. The metro and the express take 30 to 40 minutes to get downtown, and their prices vary. Car rentals are a more convenient option for people who want to explore the city. Check with Orbitz.com to book your rental and save more money.
