Airport Logistics in Athens

I will be arriving to Athens on a Thursday @ 4pm (KLM Airlines from Amsterdam) and have a connecting flight with Olympic air at 6pm. I am not sure if I will have a boarding pass since the web-check in system only allow printing a boarding pass 24 hours ahead of time and by the time I have a printer it will be more than 24h….so: What do I need to do if I arrive there without boarding pass? I assume I just need to get to the gate-counter and get my ticket or will I have to go out, do check in and pass through security? I will not have checked luggage.

On a separate note, I will have luggage on my way back from Crete and will spend a couple of days in Athens, so, regarding bus x95; is this bus a good option if you have a suitcase or will it be better to take the metro? Are there any compartments to put a medium size suitcase (not carry on)? Is it usually crowded? (Monday ~5pm)

Hey and welcome silarem:-) Without a boarding pass, believe you will have to check in again..but easy enough to just ask once you de-plane in Athens at the transit desk;-) Athens airport is not complicated..it's all encompassed under 1 roof or terminal building so no getting lost here! As far as transport from airport into Athens..both the metro and express bus have luggage hold..no problem on either;-) You'll be first to enter for run on metro since that is where the train starts..but does get packed enroute..if getting off at Syntamga..just be prepared the stop before which is Evangelismos..there are digital reads of the stop as well as announcements in both Greek and English..for the bus it's just get on and grab a seat! Enjoy!
