It opened on July 9, 2007 as the western terminus of the line from Athens Airport. Initially the station served as an exchange point for passengers to Patras on the old metre gauge SPAP line to Patras, but all traffic was suspended indefinitely in December 2010 for cost reasons. The nearby old Kiato station was also closed. Passengers for Patras must now change to bus services at Kiato.
As of 2013[update] the station is served by one train per hour to Athens Airport.
