Electric Train to Connect Piraeus to Athens Airport in June

Travel between the port of Piraeus and Athens International Airport will take approximately 45 minutes on an electric train set to operate in June, Transport and Infrastructure Minister Christos Spirtzis said recently during his visit to the central Athens hub.

“The Athens station will be fully operational in April and delivered to the citizens and to the public who will be able to enjoy a modern electric train. The train will reach Piraeus and works will be continued… in efforts to link the railway with the Metro station”, Spirtzis said.

The service, expected to facilitate the transportation needs of incoming tourists, comes after the launch of a first route from the Larissa train station in central Athens which is slated to kick off in April. The minister also added that an electric drive will be in place to serve the Athens-Thessaloniki route by 2019.

At the same time, the central Athens Larissa Station will be undergoing renovation works including establishing a connection with the metro, opening lower-level passageways and reshaping of the station’s main building. The works are budgeted at 46.7 million euros.
