Flying to:

Skiathos:

By far the quickest and simplest way.
From there take the Hydrofoil/Cat/Ferry to Alonnisos ( 30 –90 min. trip)

Please note best to get an early flight to Skiathos on Friday to ensure ferry connection to Alonnisos on the same day, particularly in June.

Athens:

From there take a bus or taxi to the Alkyon Travel Office at 97 Akademia, Kanigos Square. From there take the Alkyon Bus to Agios Konstantinos, and the Flying Cat (or Dolphin) to Alonnisos. (Total time from Athens 5 –6 hours).
Or find a connecting half hour flight to Skiathos with Olympic Airlines. (half hour)
Flights to the mainland will be cheaper than Skiathos, but internal travel has risen sharply this year – e.g. €66.50 single from Athens.

Thessaloniki:

A bus links the airport with the KTEL bus station on the other side of the city for less than a euro. Take a KTEL bus to Volos (2 and 1/2 hours) and Flying Cat or Dolphin or ferry from there. (3 hours)
There are also ferries in the season either directly from Thessaloniki to Alonnisos, or to Skiathos or Skopelos with connecting sea traffic from these islands.

Volos:

Not many flights from here though RyanAir has recently started using it. The airport is some distance from the port – an hour’s taxi drive to the port. Flying Cat/Dolphin/Ferry from port to Alonnisos.
