Skiathos Island National Airport is the entry point for holiday destinations on the Greek island of Skiathos. The airport is just 3km the island capital Skiathos Town, and a short transfer from popular resorts like Koukounaries. Flights to Skiathos are also useful for holidaymakers heading on to the neighbouring islands of Skopelos and Alonissos.
Direct flights are only available during the long beach holiday season, when tour operators like Thomson, Thomas Cook and Monarch provide charter flights from airports throughout the UK. Many of the best deals are found in early spring and late summer when the weather remains warm and sunny. Seasonal routes often begin in April or May and end in September or October.
The summer season sees charter flights from regional airports like Newcastle and Birmingham. The best deals are frequently from Bristol and London Gatwick. Reasonably priced fares are also available from London Heathrow with Aegean Airlines. Almost all flights are indirect. If flights are not available you should be able to find an onward flight from Athens.
Finding flights in the winter season is problematic if not impossible. Winter visitors to the island have to rely on local ferry services or fly via Athens.
