How to get to Thessaloniki by Air and Over-Land?

  • By plane – from all over the World & Europe
    Thessaloniki, being Greece’s second largest city, is comfortablely reachable by plane from all major air hubs around Europe. Ryanair, WizzAir, Aegean Airlines and Easyjet still offer very decently priced tickets as of today. Thessaloniki’s Macedonia Airport is located 16km outside the city and is served by a 24/7 bus service (line 78, 78A and 78N, during night). Tickets for Bus No. 78 and 78N come at 2,00 EUR. Tickets for Bus No. 79 come at 1,00 EUR one way and 1,20 EUR (changing two buses -within a duration of 70 minutes) and  1,50 EUR for changing three buses. The trip takes about 50 minutes to downtown Thessaloniki. The ticket, inside the bus, costs 1,10 EUR one way and 1,30 EUR (changing two buses -within a duration of 70 minutes). Updated ticket prices here.
  • By bus – from Southeast Europe & Turkey
    Additionally, Thessaloniki is greatly connected over-land by bus from multiple destinations in Southeast Europe, incl. Istanbul, Athens, Sofia, Skopje, Belgrade and Tirana. Buses arrive at Macedonia Central Bus Station (KTEL station), which is located 5km west of Thessaloniki’s city center. Inner-city buses connect KTEL station with the city center.
