Rhodes International Airport,

The island's bus system is excellent. If you're the adventurous type and soon get fed up lying on the beach, you'll find it easy to make your way around the island by bus. Buses also run to and from the airport. Regular buses connect the airport with Rhodes Town, departing several times a day. A ticket for a single journey only costs a couple of Euros and you'll find the bus stop about 300m left of the terminal's Door 1. It takes about forty minutes to get to Rhodes town. You'll find buses leaving the airport at regular intervals from 6.50am to 11.05pm, timed to coincide with flight arrivals. Just ask at the information desk for a timetable.
It's very hard to miss Rhodes airport because the island's main dual carriageway circles the coast of the island in a ring. Driving is a very simple matter. The airport is actually on the ring road so you'd have to try pretty hard not to find it. Just follow the signposting. The city of Rhodes is twenty minutes' drive away and the road goes through interesting places like Soroni, Emponas, Paradisi and Monolithos.
Airport car parks are free. There's free long term and short term parking right opposite the terminal. So the cost of car parks is the last thing you need to worry about. It's covered.
The airport is well equipped with plenty of duty-free outlets, banks, cafes, bars and parking. There are convenient luggage lockers in the terminal and a medical centre if you're taken ill or injured. There are basic facilities for disabled travellers, including disabled toilets. If you need help, it's a good idea to contact airport staff before you go and arrange support up front.
Rhodes Airport is still undergoing expansion and its facilities and services are steadily improving. In the meantime it's fit for purpose, clean and efficient. And, of course, Greek people are famously friendly and welcoming so you'll get a warm reception.
