New: Bus service from Athens Airport to Evia

In an effort to increase tourism flows to Evia, the island’s hoteliers association recently signed an agreement with the local KTEL Intercity Bus service for the transfer of visitors straight from the Athens International Airport.

The program will operate on a pilot scheme from July 17 to October 16 and include four daily round trips between the Athens International Airport and the cities of Halkida and Eretria. The cost of a one-way ticket is 15-17 euros/person.

The bus goes from the airport at 07.30; 12.30; 17.30 and 23.00.

From Eretria it's at 05.00; 10.00; 15.00 and 20.00 (From Halkida it's 05.40; 10.45; 15.45 and 20.45)

The trip takes about 2h20.

halikida is a very interesting and common destination for us athenians,....from the bridge with the ''crazy water'' where you can sit and have a coffee at the waterfront,to its beaches and the tavernas with good food.

never been to eretria but it also has a good fame...i wonder if a ktel bus contract is enough though..i doubt foreigners know these places at the first place..

Pity they don't mention from where the bus leaves at the airport.

But good news also for travellers/tourists wanting to go on to Skiathos through Evia (Mantoudi). It opens up another way besides the one going to Athens first and then with the bus to Ag. Konstantinos organised by a travel agency.

@m_at2385: Eretria is quite known to Belgian (package)tourists as it featured for years in the brochures of 2 touroperators.

Certainly great news for those who don't want to drive. Evia is little known to most foreign tourists but it's beautiful.

I was at athens airport an hour ago..Noone knew about this service..one guy that operates the public bus booth said it's finished, it was only for the summer. One guy sent me to car park so I guess nothing has changed. Apparently it ends in October. This is greece..deep breathe!! haha
