Thera is served by Thera Santorini Airport, also commonly referred to as Fira, Santorini, Thera, Thira, or simply Thera Airport. The airport code is JTR.
The Santorini Airport’s central location makes it easy to access all corners of the island. Whether you’re staying in the northernmost or southernmost tip of the island it will take you approximately 25min to drive to your accommodation. It will also take you about 20min to drive to the Santorini New Harbour, where you can catch ferries and tour boats to the nearby islands.
If you need to pick up some Euros when you arrive in Santorini or Thera, you can find OneXchange currency services in the Arrivals Area of the Santorini Airport. Alternatively, you can also find ATMs available from Euronet and Piraeus Bank. It is worth taking a look at all the options at the airport, as some companies offer lower transaction fees than others.
There is limited public transport around Santorini, however, there is a public bus service that can take you to Thera (Fira) from the Santorini Airport. The bus stop can be found to your left as you exit the terminal, between Arrivals and Departures. Tickets are purchased from the driver. There are also taxis that can take you all over the island. The fare to Thera is about € 15–20 (A$ 25–32).
The Ancient Thera city is located south of the Santorini Airport, just beyond the village of Kamari. It takes around 20min to drive from the airport to the entrance and parking site at the top of the mountain. If you do not have a car, public transport runs from Thera to Kamari where you can then enjoy a hike into Ancient Thera.
You can find registration counters for several different rental car companies in the Arrivals Area of the Santorini Airport, just after you pass through the baggage claim and customs. Companies at the airport include Avance, Goldcar, Hertz, Sixt, Budget, Avis, and Suntime. If travelling during peak season it is recommended that you book your car in advance of your journey due to high demand.

Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Plane from Munich was late coming to Zagreb, so my flight was late because of that and was about to lose connection flight from Munich to Brussels. Then, Lufthansa drivers waited in Munich, put us in vans and drove us to plane for Brussels. Amazing service!."
Pros: "The crew were so friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I was told on the phone earlier (and very rudely) there are no gluten free options for eating. I have celiac disease and do not do the diet for "fun". It's for health. I found out thanks to the excellent crew on board there is an option."
Pros: "Lufthansa is always reliable. Flight was fine. The staff were kind and efficient in their jobs."
Cons: "There is no inflight entertainment on these flight but I brought my own."
Pros: "Very clean cabin, crew efficient and friendly"
Cons: "The sweet pastry is horrible, please bling back the cheese sandwich/ or similar."
Cons: "Lufthansa lost my luggage. Still waiting in my hotel."
Pros: "Food and service were phenomenal, and the seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "Gate agents were joking and laughing during pre-board, and the entire plane attempted to board at once."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "The whole experience"
Cons: "Lufthansa warse company ever fly with . everything was bad . delay like two hours , food only meat because No enough chicken and No socks to warm my foot because I was feeling cold ."
Pros: "It was run by UA, better seats then Austrian or Lufthansa in Economy. On time. Very efficient."
Cons: "Could not choose seats online,"
Pros: "The entertainment, food, and crew were great."
Cons: "I had no problems with this leg of the flight."
Pros: "frequent passing out of water and juice; very good dinner; cheerful hostesses; choice of video entertainment"
Cons: "Need AC outlets and better WIFI"
Pros: "Lufthansa is an efficient operation."
Cons: "1. The comfort in economy class was insulting and horrible. I am 6'3", 175lbs and was trapped in one uncompromisingly uncomfortable position for 8+ hours. Torture is a word that comes to mind. If I were a smaller sized person, 5'8" or less, perhaps this may be acceptable, but for anyone over 6'. forget it. You must pay loads extra to be given a respectable seat. I am hopeful that I don't develop a blood clot from this flight. This lack of room is a seriously dangerous situation for many people on long-distance flights. 2. The seat recline feature added further insult to the mix. Once airborne, the lady in the seat in front of me sent her seat into what was left of any personal space or legroom I had. The video screen on the setback in front of me was literally 6" from my face now. Several people who were also of taller size complained, one was so adamant about retaining his space that he fought verbally with the lady in front of him, and eventually a stewardess had to be called. My wife complained on my behalf, and was able to get the lady in front of me to reposition her seat, but eventually, I noticed it somehow found its way back to recline again. I know Lufthansa is not alone with this predicament, but something HAS TO BE DONE to fix this huge problem with air travel. 3. The food on the flight to Germany was way better than the return trip. The meal consisted of mushy carrots, greasy mashed potato-like side, and a piece of OK chicken smothered in 'Murican BBQ sauce. I was insulted. Lufthansa had been better than this in the past. Oh, and the dinner roll was so dry and crumbly, it could have been weeks old. The snack before landing was called pizza, but I wouldn't call it that It was a bunch of tasteless dough, a little bit of tomato like sauce and a smattering of cheese. I wish Lufthansa would stick to what they do best; German-influenced food. Be true to who you are. Most people I know love German food, and I always have looked forward to LH food selections. Not now."
Pros: "Food was excellent. Wide variety of entertainment options. Good German beer."
Cons: "Cramped seating in economy for the long flight with thin padding making me very aware of the knees of the man behind me."
Cons: "First, Lufthansa lost our baggage from Hamburg to Los Angeles. Then, the delivery company (Direct Courier Services) Lufthansa uses was completely inept and unprofessional - every single one of their employees is a complete moron. We didn't end up getting our baggage for two and half days so we were wearing the same clothes that we left Germany with. Then, after being told by Lufthansa customer service to submit receipts for clothes we had to buy, never got reimbursed or even the courtesy of a reply. After flying Lufthansa for over a decade, will never use this airline again. Epic fail."
Pros: "Smooth fast flight with good service!"
Cons: "Late taking off which happens, but they tried to make up the time in the air as much as they could on a short flight,"
Pros: "The crew was competent and friendly. Once we missed our connection, the "help desk" was accommodating, though we had to stand in line for a long, long time before they could help us."
Cons: "We were delayed leaving Munich and the pilot simply said he had no explanation. The delay, combined with massive dysfunction at the Newark airport, caused us to miss our connection to RDU. We ended up in an airport hotel where we caught four hours' sleep before returning to the airport. Newark airport is the worst I've ever experienced. Getting our passports stamped took more than an hour. There were five officials there to clear five or six hundred U.S. passport holders. Then, the TSA people were rude, inefficient, and achingly slow. Overall, it was a horrible experience."
Pros: "From boarding to the whole in flight experience - special meal never came, paid extra for seats and wish I never did, food is terrible , luggage is lost on the way back - week later no contact! Never again"
Cons: "I would like for this airline to close down and never hurt anyone again!"
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "no entertainment, cramped seats"
Pros: "Service was outstanding. Very polite and prompt."
Pros: "My booking and ticketing went very well Lufthansa was great"
Pros: "Crew service and positive attitude"
Pros: "Crew was warm and considerate."
Cons: "Flight was jam packed and a huge guy sat next to me and made my entire flight miserable. In economy, huge guys are a big inconvinience as they spill over your space (which is already cramped). The passenger in front pushes her seat back and when i do the same, someone from behind says it makes them uncomfortable. Wish crue can take care of these situations."
Cons: "The vegetarian option was not as up to the standard of the meal travelling from Los Angeles to Frankfurt. It could be much improved in Business Class."
Pros: "Great movie options, relatively good food for an airplane."
Cons: "Booked way in advanced, paid extra to book upper deck on both; outgoing flight Miami - Frankfurt and return, but was bumped out of our seats. Spent 2 hours on the phone trying to book them again, and ended up on a lower deck on the Miami - Frankfurt flight, but re-booked on the upper deck on Frankfurt- Miami flight although not the side seats as I originally booked myself, but in the middle section. The entertainment's touch screen system is inadequate, not reacting to touch efficiently."
Pros: "During this flight, the attendants were suprisingly kind."
Cons: "Entertainment was just too poor(movie selection was just counted numbers.) the seat comfort was one of the ugliest, I think. even though they prepared many of premium seats, still once you compare with other airlines, it is far below than the average I think."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "Seats on airplane from Frankfort to Cairo"
Cons: "It was a great flight"
Pros: "I enjoyed the meal service, drinks and entertainment."
Cons: "My final leg of the trip was delayed by 3 hours, making us sit on the plane. I missed my connection in Minneapolis. Not happy because the airline did nothing to help me get home."
Pros: "Staff on board was cordial und Wunderbar"
Cons: "Handle on wife's Travel Scoot was slightly bent but it still works."
Pros: "The short flight from Naples to Munich on Lufthansa was comfortable and the seats were roomier with more leg room than on other airlines I've been on recently."
Cons: "Why I had to fly from Naples to Munich and then down to Zurich to take an Edelweiss flight (Swiss Air, horrible), is beyond me. Poor routing, plus, the Edelweiss flight took 10 hours to Tampa. My family flew from Naples to Paris and from Paris to St. Louis, Mo. in SIX hours. The four extra hours were excruciatingly long in cramped seats."
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Boarding was even more chaotic. No clear signs for premium economy."
Pros: "more than 2 hours spent in the plane which was the reason for waiting at the airport taxi and extra pay."
Cons: "Entertainment system was very slow."
Cons: "The service provided by the crew was okay but their attitudes were horrible. It seems as though they did not want to work."
Pros: "Flight was short. Only 3.x hours."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and seems to be made from paper. Very little leg room. My pregnant wife experienced very unpleasant feelings all flight long."
Pros: "Top of the line service on a very long but smooth ride"
Pros: "crews are very professional. speak multiple languages. except for the quality of food, the airline provide good service."

Some of the people in AEGEAN airlines were extremely rude and had no empathy for us, it was an awful day!!! because we had no sleep cause we where there at 2 am in the morning cause the flight was at 5:15 and we did that because we wanted to be for the whole day in santorini so you can imagine how frustrating and upset we were, they just gave us a snak for 6.50 Euro and 10 hours later We literalaly had to figth for our Food, We will apriciate if youu can do something about it or get us a refound, we where 3 people: ana Marrufo, Estefani Escoffie and pamela Ramayo"
