Airport link closed - why?

From Athens News:

PROASTIAKOS Rail operator TrainOSE has announced that the Proastiakos (suburban rail) service between Nerantziotissa and Athens airport is suspended from today “until further notice” because of “technical reasons”. This will mean that there will be no direct airport link between Kiato, Corinth and intervening stations for the foreseeable future.

The announcement at TrainOse page:

Why? What kind of "technical problems" ('τεχνικών προβλημάτων') on an almost brand new rail section? :rant:

Only the trains of the small route between Neratziotissa and airport are suspended. Those timetables were only some days and hours. The reason is that we are out of Desiros... But today I think we have railbus on the line.

OK, thanks. Then the information at Athens News seems to be a bit inaccurate at best!

There are no Desiro Electric trains available for the scheduled timetable,due to many failures and accidents on tis type of trains that is what they call "tecnical problem"

Seems Athens News have corrected their news item, now it stands as:

"PROASTIAKOS Rail operator TrainOSE has announced that a number of Proastiakos (suburban rail) services between Nerantziotissa and Athens airport have been suspended from today “until further notice” because of “technical reasons”. Under the changes, the only service to the airport will be the hourly service from Kiato."

But what about Airport - Ano Liosia service? If we shall believe ALCoGMNάνι :wink: such a service should also exist:
