Kos Island International Airport

Kos Island International Airport is located 24 km southwest of Kos Town in the centre of the island. If you arrive with Olympic Airways, you can catch the shuttle bus into Kos Town, but otherwise you will have to find your own means of transport. The easiest thing to do then will be to catch a taxi, which is available from the airport arrival gate, or, you can head out to the big roundabout outside the airport gate and catch the orange and cream coloured KTEL bus. En route to Kos, the bus stops at Mastihari, Kardhamena and Kefalos.
