Athens Airport short layover


If I were to fly into Athens on Agean from Kos, and landed at 7:25am - would I be able to make it to a 8:35am international flight on Lufthansa. No checked luggage involved.

Hey and welcome Kate C:-) This is such a personal call .. all up to your risk tolerance level.. your comfort zone.. and although doable, does involve some major risk.. consider the consequences in case of a miss! Any slight delay on arrival from the isle flight can just about ensure a miss.. If this is part of your trans flight(s) back to the States, the domino affect can be pretty concerning so you'd need to be prepared to deal with the results which in the end, can be as costly as they are time consuming and tiresome;-)

Would consider flying into Athens the night before.. better safe than sorry;-) No anx or stress having to worry about it.. and you'll in essence guarantee that morning flight out;-) Best.. and EnJOY!

Did you make it? I was wondering the same thing. I have a possible layover in Athens (no checked luggage) but it is only 1 hour and 5 min. Going from Santorini to Athens to Milan MXP to go back to the States.

Hi SMosely,

You are posting in an old post. Most likely the original poster doesn't follow this thread anymore.
