Airplanes to Skiathos
There are many charter flights to Skiathos from various European metropolitan cities during the busy season. There are flights from Athens to Skiathos year-round.
Bus from the Airport to Hotel
If you are going to take a bus to your hotel, you should know that your luggage will not be loaded onto the bus. Instead, the luggage is loaded onto trucks and dropped off at everybody’s accommodation later. You should bring along a small bag with hygiene products and clothes to change into just in case it takes the truck a long time to drop off your luggage at your hotel. If you want to avoid any delays with your luggage, you can take a taxi instead of the bus.
