Arriving in Destination

The airport is just off the E75, about 5km east of the city centre. Buses run to points in the city, including the port, the regional (and local) bus stations and Plateia Eleftherias, from 6am to midnight (€1.20, every 10 to 15 minutes) from a stop about 50m in front of the departures door. Buy tickets at the bus-stop machine or with the attendant (on board the fare is €2).

Taxis wait outside the arrivals terminal. The fare into town is a fixed rate €15 (outlying destinations are by meter).
