Χ93 : Kifissos KTEL (long-distance buses) Station - Airport
X95 : Syntagma – Airport
Χ96 :
Port of Piraeus – Airport
Χ97 : Eliniko Metro Station – Airport

One-way travel time estimates: X93 (65 min), X95 (70 min), X96 (90 min), X97 (100 min). Allow sufficient time to travel as traffic conditions may cause delays.
