Travelling to Kos
Kos -, located in the Aegean Sea, southeast of Greece just off the coast of
Turkey, is the second largest of the Dodecanese Islands.
Hippokrates Airport is 26kms southwest of Kos; and a bus will take you to the
town centre for €3.50, or taxis are available for about €14. If you're
flying out of Kos with Olympic, a free bus service is available to the airport,
provided you arrive at its town centre office two hours prior to departure.
The only scheduled flights into and out of Kos are via Olympic Airways, with
direct flights from Athens and Rhodes. Currently, there are three flights daily
from Athens, and several each week from Rhodes. The best way to get to Kos is
with a chartered airline, several of which land each day from all over Europe
and include transfers to the town.
As the transportation hub of the Dodecanese, Kos offers car ferries, passenger
ferries and hydrofoils; and you can make your way to Kos from virtually anywhere
in the Aegean. Ports are linked to Kos year round with daily ferry services
from Piraeus near Athens, Rhodes, Kalimnos and Bodrum. Leros and Patmos enjoy
the same frequency but with a stop or two along the way.
