During June, traffic at the airport is extremely busy with numerous flights arriving from all over the world. Many times, it is rather difficult to get a taxi and waiting time at queues can be exhausting and tiring.
For this reason, we have arranged for round ticket shuttle services at a special rate, especially organized for the ICASSP 2023 participants, provided by Travel Exchange. The round ticket cost is € 12 per person. The time schedules fit the daily arrival times of Aegean and Olympic Airways from Athens and Thessaloniki (Saturday June 3, Sunday June 4 and Monday June 5), as well as the departure times of Aegean and Olympic Airways for Athens and Thessaloniki (Friday June 9, Saturday June 10 and Sunday June 11). A minimum of 15 passengers per bus is required; otherwise, the bus transfer may be cancelled. In case of cancellation, a notification will be sent to travelers at least 48 hours prior to arrival.
A hospitality desk will be operated at the airport for the ICASSP 2023 participants. If you buy airport transfer bus tickets, you will be guided by volunteer members to the bus. Those who arrive or depart from Rhodes via a charter flight please check the time schedules below and make a reservation if the time of the bus departure suits your timing.
