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. For more information call Lucy Hotel at +30 22210 23831.
The scheme is partially funded by the Region of Central Greece, the Chamber of Evia and the Evia Island Port Authority (OLNE).
The Evia Hoteliers Association is also planning to connect the Athens International Airport with the suburban railway in order to further facilitate travelers, who wish to visit the island at the lowest possible fare, an announcement said.
Located northeast of Athens, Evia is the second largest island of Greece. Its coastline is 48 km long and includes numerous beaches, while it is also known for its thermal springs. For more information on Evia press here.
