The small but busy airport of Skiathos Alexandros Papadiamantis (JSI), named after the famous writer born on the island, is located just a couple of kilometers northeast of the capital. Summer destination adored by many Greeks and not only, it is characterized by a short and narrow runway; the only solution to have an airport on the island was to build on a reclaimed land of the sea which united, turning into a big island, Skiathos and the then small islet of Lazareta.
In the summer period numerous charter flights reach the island of Skiathos from many European localities while in the course of the whole year the connections from and for Athens, Thessaloniki and Larnaca are assured by Olympic Airlines and Cyprus Airways.
Once landed, to reach your destination, you can choose whether to use a rental car, very recommended in Skiathos as the only bus line of the island is always overcrowded, or public transport and cabs.
