Athens Airport Connection Time

We are on an Aegean Airlines flight from Mykonos to Athens that arrives in Athens 7:35 AM and want to book our return flight to the US the same day. How much time should we allow to be able to make the international flight. Is an 8:30 AM flight cutting it too close? Thanks for the help.

Hey and welcome cbros:-) Way too close for comfort.. if not impossible;-) 55 min barely covers for even the formalities involved for an int'l flight! FWIW, best would be to arrive the day before to cover for any mishaps/delays/cancellations, whatever, that could possibly occur for a same day connection! Even for a same day connection, 3 hours would be the bare minimum.. assuming there are no incoming delays;-)

Am also assuming here with that early morning departure, you'll be flying back to the States via 'somewhere' in Europe?! A miss IMO, would cause more headaches than flying or ferrying in the day before to ensure getting home as planned;-) Best.. and enJOY!
