Athens-Thessaloniki Express Train Service To Be Launched On Monday
The first express electric train service to carry out the Athens-Thessaloniki route will be launched on Monday, May 20. The new trains are expected to shorten the journey by more than an hour, covering the distance in 3 hours and 55 minutes.

Christos Spirtzis, the Minister of Infrastructure and Transport, is expected to present the new 450km-long electrified double-track railway line, on Wednesday. The express electric train service will be incorporated into Trainose's daily schedule and will include two stops, one in Lianokladi and one in Larissa.

Initially, the service will be operated by 3 trains offering all necessary amenities for a comfortable trip, including WIFI while two modern trains similar to the Silver Arrow are expected to arrive from Italy shortly.
