Travelling Information

By air (recommended)

Kos is connected throughout the year with Athens by flights of Olympic Airways. The flight takes 35 minutes. All Olympic Airways and Olympic Aviation flights (international and domestic) are operated from the WEST Terminal of Hellinikon Airport, Athens, while all other airlines use the EAST Terminal. So, passengers who will fly to Athens with airlines besides Olympic Airways, will have to move on their arrival from the EAST Terminal to the WEST to continue their flight to the island of Kos with an other scheduled flight.
