Kos Island International Airport

Kos has had an international airport since 1964, and because of the heightened air traffic from April through to the end of October each year, many additions and upgrading works have been completed on both the runways and airport facilities in general.

The airport was operated and supervised by the Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (HCAA) until it was privatized along with 13 regional Greek airports in 2015. The ownership of the airport was transferred to  Fraport Greece ( a joint venture of Fraport AG Frankfurt Airport Services Worldwide and its Greek partner Copelouzos Group)  under a 40-year operating concession. Fraport-Greece took over the operation and will be responsible for operating, managing, upgrading, and developing the Kos Airport(KGS) until 2025.

Currency exchange booths, duty-free shopping, car rental agencies, cafes, and an outdoor parking area are all available for visitors traveling to and from Kos from dozens of different destinations.

There are daily flights to and from Athens International Airport (approximately 50-minute flight) in addition to charter flights to and from international destinations during months with heightened tourist traffic.
