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.
Today, “Kos Hippocrates International Airport”, named in honor of the man whose work in medicine and science has made the name of his small island known the world over, has facilities covering an indoor and outdoor area of over 3000 square meters to service a large number of travelers going through it. In 2011 alone, 851,489 tourists arrived in Kos from outside Greece.
Currency exchange booths, duty-free shopping, car rental agencies, cafes and an outdoor parking area ( 150 cars and 42 approximately ) 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.
