Transfer and Taxi from Santorini (Thira) International Airport (JTR)
Santorini, one of the most beautiful and popular Greek islands, invites you to experience astonishing contrasts and affordable prices for transportation.
From the airport, you can explore the island by taxi or transfer booked in advance. In this way, you can travel and enjoy the possibility of saving your money.
Santorini International Airport is situated 6 kilometers to the east from Thira. It was built in 1976 and is able to provide simultaneous service for 6 civilian aircraft. At first, the building operated as a military airport.
In winter, the airport mostly caters the needs of flights coming from Athens, Thessaloniki, Ottawa, and Canada. In summer it serves international flights and charters, which ensure air connection for European countries.
However, the airfield has one unpleasant peculiarity: when the western winds start to blow at high speed, the airport stops all its flights.
The terminal building was built in 1989. Inside you can visit duty-free shops, restaurants, cafes and car rental offices.
The airport’s basic runaway length is 2125 meters.
