In brief, Milos has a national airport that receives domestic flights from Athens throughout the year. To reach Milos from other islands, taking the ferry is the only way to achieve it.
Milos Airport (MLO) is located in the region of Zefyria, 5 km southeast of Adamas, the village that hosts the main port of the island, connecting it with many others of the Cyclades, including Santorini, Mykonos, Naxos and Paros.
It is small and features a 1.030-meter-long runaway and limited facilities.
It is connected with the International Airport of Athens, welcoming domestic flights exclusively from the Greek capital. Flights from Athens to Milos are available throughout the year, yet during the summer there are flights to Milos every day.
The airport of Milos receives direct flights from Athens only.
Sky Express and Olympic Air (which appertains to Aegean Airlines) are the two companies that fly to the island.
The average duration of a flight between the two is 40 minutes.
