Location

edit

The station is adjacent to Vouliagmenis Avenue, at its section north of the closed Ellinikon International Airport. It has two exits to the ground level, one on each side of Vouliagmenis Avenue, with the southern exit to have a metallic oval shaped roof, as well as a square.

Construction

edit

Construction works of the station started in 2007. While initially being planned to be delivered by 2009, and later 2010, it was finally inaugurated in July 2013, after three and a half years of delays, because of the Siemens Greek bribery scandal.[citation needed]

Bus connections

edit

Several bus lines of OSY operate from the station, so as to provide connections with Athens International Airport and several southern suburbs of Athens.
