Inside: Toronto Airports
The only direct flights to Athens International depart from Toronto Pearson International Airport, which is Toronto's main airport. Toronto Pearson has two terminals and which one you use depends on whether you fly with Air Canada or Air Transat. Air Canada uses the newer and more spacious Terminal 1, whereas AirTransat uses the older Terminal 3. Both terminals are connected by a free rail shuttle. As this is an international route, make sure you have your passport on hand and arrive at the airport three hours before departure.
Toronto's secondary airport, the Toronto Island Airport, doesn't offer direct flights to Athens, but Porter Airlines does fly to Newark, from which you may be able to catch a cheaper flight to the Greek capital. Furthermore, the Toronto Island Airport is much more centrally located compared to Toronto Pearson, making it a convenient option for many travellers.
Landing in Athens International

If you are visiting Athens for pleasure then you are in for a treat.
