There are a number of different ways to travel to Alonnisos – and listed below are brief details of the trip to Alonnisos from the main airports/ports.
When you have provisionally confirmed your booking (see Booking page) – check out the various deals available on flights.
By far the quickest and simplest way is to get a charter flight to the neighbouring island of Skiathos, and from there take the Flying Cat/Flying Dolphin/Ferry to Alonnisos ( 60 –90 min. trip)
This year, with the failure of Thomas Cook, there seem to be no charter flights from Gatwick. Two charters fly early from Stansted: www.tui.co.uk and www.Jet2.com
You can also get flights from City Airport with BA. www.britishairways.com
Generally from UK you can also get charters from Manchester, Bristol, East Midlands.
This year there are also connections to Skiathos via Athens https://flights.aegeanair.com/en/flights-to-skiathos
It is also possible to fly to Athens and get a bus from Athens to ports of Volos or Agios Konstantinos. The Alkyon Travel Office at 97 Akademia, Kanigos Square in Athens runs a package coach and ferry ticket to Volos or Agios Kostantinos. (Total time from Athens 3 –4 hours).
A bus links the airport with the KTEL bus station on the other side of the city for very little money. Take a KTEL bus to port of Volos (2 and 1/2 hours).
www.easyJet.com are flying there this year on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The airport is about an hour from the port via bus or taxi.
Wherever you end up: Agios Konstantinos, Volos or Skiathos you will need to catch Flying Cat Flying Dolphin or Ferry to Alonnisos Tickets are bookable in advance from
Please ensure you buy your return because the early morning sailings can get booked up and I would hate for you to leave the course early in order to catch a ferry the day before.
