By the Ath.ena Card you can get convenient fares to travel to and from Athens Airport.

The card can be used for 90 minutes up to 5 days and is rechargeable. It can be both purchased at any metro station, ticket office and at the automatic ticket machines.

The Anonymous Ath.ena Card is really worth for passengers travelling to Athens since it can be charged and recharged from 90 minutes to 5 days and used to transfer from both metro and bus from Athens Airport.
