Santorini Airport Bus

Your first order of business in Santorini will be getting from the airport to your final destination. Santorini has a special Airport Express Bus, which runs a direct route to Santorini’s main town of Fira. With no other stops, the ride takes only 10 minutes, and will only cost you €1.80.

You’ll find the bus stop just outside of the arrivals area of the airport, and you can easily buy tickets on the bus (cash only). These buses also have storage compartments above the seats and below the cabin, so you won’t have to worry about your luggage.

Fira acts as a hub for many of Santorini’s bus routes, so if you’re not staying in Fira, it’s an easy transfer to your final route. In order to do so, just buy another ticket on your next bus. It’s important to note that the Santorini Airport Bus only runs during the day, but there is another route that runs from Monolithos to Fira, stopping at the airport.

Key Santorini Airport Bus Tips

Some additional tips to keep in mind:

  • Buses can fill up quickly, especially in summer, so arrive at the bus stop at least 15 minutes before the scheduled departure time.
  • Luggage space on busses in Santorini is very limited. Only bring what you can fit under your seat or in the small overhead bins.
  • The bus system only operates until midnight, so plan your return trip accordingly or you may need to take a taxi back to your accommodation.
  • Inspectors frequently check for valid tickets.
  • Ask the Santorini Airport bus driver or check the posted schedules for the correct stop to disembark at your destination. Not all stops are announced.

With some advance planning, Santorini’s busses provide an easy and budget-friendly means of transportation around the island. Enjoy your journey and take in the scenic views as you travel between Santorini’s picturesque villages and world-class attractions.

Santorini Airport Taxi Transfers

For a more direct transfer to your destination, Santorini Airport taxis are available 24 hours a day outside the Arrivals Hall. Fares are charged on a flat-rate basis according to destination. Journey times are typically 15 to 30 minutes depending on traffic. For larger groups, consider booking a private minibus transfer in advance. This can often work out more cost effective than taking multiple taxis.

With an efficient public bus network and readily available taxis, getting to and from Santorini Airport is straightforward. So sit back, relax and enjoy the scenic drive across this picturesque island. The adventure awaits!
