How to get to Nea Plagia from the airport of Thessaloniki

Transfer from Thessaloniki airport to Halkidiki.

Halkidiki is one of the most popular destinations in Greece.

Thousands of tourists land every year at Makedonia airport in Thessaloniki, with the aim of
visiting Halkidiki. The prefecture of Halkidiki is divided into 5 large municipal units, so the
cost of transportation varies depending on where the visitor’s final destination is. In any
case, the transport options are car rental, taxis, buses and minibuses

Minibuses from Thessaloniki airport to Halkidiki.

Minibuses are one of the most economical transport options, but certainly not the most
reliable. They are not flexible and sometimes you have to wait a long time at the airport for
the minibus to fill up with the rest of the passengers you share it with.

Another disadvantage is that most of the time, a lot of time is lost, as the bus does not take
you directly to your destination, but passes through other places in order to drop off the
other passengers.

Despite this, if you want to go to Nea Plagia or Nea Flogita, it is possible to arrive first, since
Nea Plagia, Nea Flogita, Sozopoli and Nea Kallikratea are the destinations that are very close
to the airport. From the airport to Halkidiki by taxi. Outside the airport arrivals there is
always a large line of taxis that are ready to take you comfortably and quickly to any
destination in Halkidiki you wish. The total cost of the route, as well as the time you will
need to reach your destination, depends on the final destination.

In a very general approach to get to Nea Plagia or Nea Flogita the taxi ride takes 30 minutes
and costs 50 euros. To reach the first leg of Halkidiki (Kallithea, Athyto) you will need 60
minutes and the cost is 100 euros, while to reach the second leg you will need 90 minutes
and it costs 130 euros. During the night these prices are increased by 30%.
