Attiki Metro area to Airport after midnight?

Hello,

I am looking for the best/cheapest way to get to Athens Intl. Airport from the Attiki Metro area. I have an international flight at 6am on Sunday. I am not sure what my options are after midnight on a Sunday morning. Your advice is appreciated, thank you!

Your options are limited to the airport bus X95 or a taxi from where you are staying direct to the airport. If you are looking to keep the costs down then just get a taxi from your accommodation to Syndagma Square and catch the X95 bus to the airport. It stops right outside the departures doors and costs just 6 euro per person. You should aim to be at the airport for 4am to catch a 6am flight so I would take the taxi at 2.30 am to Syndagma. At that time of the night the bus will take approx. 45/60 minutes. There is plenty of luggage space on the bus.

Rest assured that these buses are reliable and punctual and quick and it won't stop many times on the way to the airport at that time of night.

For a shorter & cheaper taxi ride you could go to Kifissou bus station & get the X93 to the airport, it will take about an hour.

Last metro train from Attiki to Syntagma (direction Elliniko) departs at 02.05 on a Sat night/Sunday morning so you could use it to get to Syntagma.

The Attiki area is a dump so exercise caution so late at night.

Thank you everyone, my plan will be to take an Uber to Kifissou bus station. Then take the bus to the airport at about 3am Sunday. Can someone confirm this will work?

Uber is illegal in Greece,I suggest you download the BEAT app and get a confirmed legal taxi.

May I seek please advice and guidance if Bus X95 from Syntagma Square is safe and secured, as with the location of the bus stop on Syntagma Square from Ermou Street during early morning (i.e., in light of same/similar predicament of early morning flight) out of Athens International Airport?

You will be fine. There will be other people around. The bus stop is at the top right hand corner of Syndagma Square as you approach it from Ermou. Opposite Mitropoleos Street. There is usually a bus waiting there so you can just get straight on and wait for it to leave. If the ticket kiosk is closed just buy your tickets from the driver for 6 euro each and validate them on the bus.

The X95 bus will drop you right outside the airport departures doors.

Thanks, Eamon. Appreciate the guidance. Would you say this holds true for single/solo travellers during early morning transits (between 3 and 4 am)? Have been reading on pickpockets observed in the area. Including notorious cab rides. Is this true to date?
