Aigeira/Akrata - Proastiakos (Athens International Airport to Kiato)

How to travel to Aigeira by train

Currently the train line that used to connect Aigeira with Athens is under construction as it is being renovated, hence there is no direct link at the moment. Trains of Proastiakos (a.k.a Suburban Railway) travel as far as the city of Kiato.

The project it expected to complete by Summer 2019 which will allow you to travel the whole route with only one quick change (see below for details).

If you wish to travel by train to Kiato from Athens International Airport then you will have to get into the service that goes to Athens and get off at Kato Acharnai.

At Kato Acharnai you should disembark for the service that will take you to Kiato. In reality you simply just have to go from one side of the platform to the opposite, a couple of meters apart.

Update April 2019: It has been reported that the first pilot run for testing the line is scheduled for the 17th April. If no delays occur then it is expected that services will begin within 3-4 months. It is not yet known whether the route will be integrated into the existing suburban route network or whether there will be a new route starting from Athens and ending at Aigio.
