Greek islands with airport

Greek islands with airport domestic and international flights

Some of the most beautiful islands in Greece can be reached with direct flights from all over Europe and also from Italy . If your destination is Dodecanese or the Cyclades , you will find some islands that can be reached with a direct flight: on the map of airports in Greece, you can see which ones they are. There are also many solutions with low-cost flights available.

The Greek islands with international airports are many , to which are added islands with smaller national airports, or flights operating only in the summer season. However, it is not always possible to book a flight to take us to our destination. The smaller islands or outside the mass tourism circuit, cannot be reached by plane, so it is necessary to combine the transport by ferry after landing at the airport closest to our final destination.

Greek islands with airport

There are many Greek islands with airports, but not all of them have international ports . International airports are generally found in the most popular vacation spots, with some exceptions.

Naxos, for example, despite being well known and one of the most visited destinations in summer, does not have an international airport, but only a small national airport where charter flights from Athens land, many of which only operate in summer. Of all the islands of Greece, the Cyclades archipelago gathers most of the destinations of international tourism: Santorini and Mykonos.

Greek islands with international airport

Reaching a Greek island with a direct flight is certainly the best way for a holiday in Hellenic land. There are not many islands with direct flights, but they are certainly among the most famous ones: just think of Santorini, Mykonos and Crete, which alone catalyze most of the tourists in transit in Greece. But let's not forget Skiathos or Rhodes or Kos in the Dodecanese, other very popular destinations in the summer.

There is a consideration, however. These islands with international airports often correspond to the gateway to Greece and not the final destination. An example? Just think of islands like Ios or Folegandros, which do not have an airport but which are easily accessible after landing at Santorini airport. Or Patmos or Symi reachable respectively from the island of Kos and Rhodes. Therefore always consider these combinations and trips when you will choose your holiday destination in Greece .

Greek islands with domestic airport

The islands often have small airports where internal flights land. The frequency of domestic flights changes according to the season: higher in the summer months, less in the winter. However, considering that all the Greek islands can be reached more or less easily by ferry, the internal airport becomes a valid alternative to speed up travel, or to reach those really distant islands. Such as Kastellorizo ​​ , reachable by a flight after the stopover in Athens or Thessaloniki, which could alternatively be reached by ferry after a landing in Rhodes. But in that case, get ready for a nice ferry trip lasting several hours.
