Kalymnos serves domestic flights from Athens. A popular alternative is too reach first the island of Rhodes by plane and take a ferry from there. The island is also connected by ferry from Piraeus port, in Athens, but the trip is very long.
Kalymnos Island National Airport receives only domestic flights from Athens International Airport "Eleftherios Venizelos".
The duration of the trip is about 1 hour. The airport is located almost 6 km away from Pothia Town.
You can reach Kalymnos by ferry from Piraeus port in Athens, as there are available routes approximately 3 times per week. However, the trip is quite long and lasts about 10 hours.
Apart from Athens, Kalymnos is also connected by ferry with some islands of the Dodecanese, including Rhodes, Kos, Leros, and Patmos.
Especially from Kos and more specifically from Mastihari port, there are very frequent routes to Kalymnos, about 2 to 3 times per day.
