1 hour 40 minutes between flights

We would be flying Santorini-Athens-Istanbul; however, there would only be 1 hour 40 minutes between Athens-Istanbul and Istanbul-Brisbane flights. Is this pushing it?

Another possibility is to get the overnight Santorini-Athens ferry, to allow us to get an earlier flight and leave us amble time to connect.

Thoughts?

We're looking at the Santorini-Athens overnight ferry for Wednesday 13 September, if there's a ferry available for then (Wednesday) or do they generally depart in the afternoon? We don't want to miss a further half day in Santorini.

Do not think you are ample time in Athens for your flight transfer. Why not sacrifice your half day in Santorini, and play it safe.

It depends what Santorini-Athens ferries are available. We will see if we can extend our Santorini stay as well.

Can anyone confirm if the 12:40am Blue Star Santorini-Athens ferry only operates on Tuesday, Thursday and weekends?? How likely is it that this will be in operation in mid September?

You could try www.bluestarferries.gr and contact the company and ask them.It might be a bit too soon though.Travelling the distance you are,I would be inclined to be back in Athens the day before your flight and spend your last night there.

Thanks richard130558, I'll have another look at Blue Star Ferries' website.

Cheers
