SIM card in Greece

Is there anywhere in the Athens airport where you can purchase a SIM card ? What does Greece require to purchase a SIM card ( photo, passport etc) ?

If not, is there a place in Chania , Crete?

Unless something has changed recently, if you're coming into Athens by air the only way you can get to the Germanos Store in the secure departures area for the Cosmote SIM is if you have an ongoing boarding pass for another flight. Otherwise you'll have to get it somewhere other than at the airport. Germanos stores are everywhere in Greece. Vodafone and Wind are the other two main service providers and there are outlets for them as well. If you're going into central Athens you'll find Germanos near to Syntagma Square. Some islands with Germanos Stores: Santorini, Naxos, Paros, Andro, Syros, Mykonos, Crete, Tinos, Milos and Rhodes.
