UPDATE: September 3, 2009, the Athens Metro Line between the Athens International Airport and downtown Athens is now OPEN.
The Greek press published an announcement regarding the reopening of the Athens Airport Metro Line on August 28, 2009 – alas, today is September 1 and I’ve just spoke with someone at Attiki Metro who told me that the line did NOT OPEN today, and although it is possible it MAY open on Friday September 4, 2009 or Monday September 7, 2009, it is still not confirmed. Oh how I love this country :-)
And so, as of 3:15 pm, Athens time, Tuesday September 1, 2009, the METRO which operates between Eleftherios Venizelos Athens Airport and downtown Athens REMAINS CLOSED.
Watch this page for confirmation on the actual opening perhaps on September 4, 2009 … or maybe on September 7, 2009 or maybe …
