ShermansTravel experts map out your travel route to get you to your vacation spot as quickly and easily as possible. We painstakingly research the airports and airlines servicing your destination – as well as any train, bus, or ferry options – so getting there is as simple as a jaunt across town.

Getting to Greek Islands


Greece’s main airport is Athens International Airport (ATH), which operates flights to many of the larger islands. Direct international flights also connect various European capitals to popular islands like Corfu (KFU), Mykonos (JMK), Rhodes (RHO), Santorini (JTR) and Skiathos (JSI).


The Greek national carrier, Olympic Airlines, offers direct flights from New York to Athens, however, due to financial problems it may close in 2008. Delta also offers direct Flights from New York to Athens. Many European carriers serve the city as well.

Flight Times

Flights from New York to Athens take approximately 10 hours; flights from Los Angeles take about 16. From here, expect an additional flight of 30 min to 1 hour and 15 min, depending on which island you are traveling to.
