The nearest airport to Ancient Olympia is Kalamata airport (114km/ 2-hours’ drive). However, it is a fairly small airport and mostly handles charters flights during the busy tourist and vacation summer months. Delegations should check if there is a flight connection from their city to Kalamata Airport.

 

During the 1st day of the Symposium busses/vans will depart from Kalamata Airport to transfer the delegations to Olympia. The delegations will be notified about the meeting point and the departure hours by e-mail after the participations are finalized and the participants’ airplane arrival schedule is available.

 

On the last day (5th day) the buses will depart from Olympia to Kalamata Airport. The departure hour of each bus depends on the flight departure hour of the travelers, so that they will be at the airport on time for their flight.

 

All the delegations should be in Ancient Olympia by the end of the first day.

The next choice (and probably the best) is to flight to “Eleutherios Venizelos” Athens International Airport. The airport is 332 km, 5 hours’ drive away from Ancient Olympia.

 

During the 1st day of the Symposium, busses/vans will depart from Athens and Athens International Airport to transfer the delegations to Olympia. The delegations will be notified about the meeting point and the departure hours by e-mail, after the participations are finalized and the participants’ airplane arrival schedule is available.

 

Since the Opening Ceremony will be on the second day (on the 20th April) at 10:00 a.m., all delegations should arrive at Olympia on the 19th of April. It is highly recommended that the delegations plan their flight so that they will have arrived at the Athens International Airport airport on the 19th April by 17:00 at the latest. If, due to the flight program of the airlines this is not possible, the delegations are strongly advised to consider the possibility of arriving in Athens a day earlier. In a case such as this, the delegation will pay an extra night for their extra accommodation in Athens and they will be transferred to Ancient Olympia on the 19th . The organizers will provide any help needed.

 

On the last day (5th day), the buses will depart from Olympia to Athens and Athens International Airport. The departure hour of each bus depends on the flight departure hour of the travelers, so that they will be at the airport on time for their flight.

 

All the delegations should be in Ancient Olympia by the end of the first day.
