Flights to Paros
Flights to Paros
The flights that arrive to Paros come from either Athens International Airport or Thessaloniki Airport.
There are also flights from Santorini and Mykonos to Paros, but they stop in Athens and thus make a long detour to reach Paros. However, some people may prefer to fly rather than take the ferry so it's important to know that this option exists.
The planes used for domestic flights are very small. The flight from Athens takes about half an hour, the flight from Thessaloniki takes about an hour and fifteen minutes, and the flights from Mykonos and Santorini take around an hour or even longer due to the layover time between flights.

The airport in Paros located in Kampos and here is the exact location, 10 minutes drive from the village Aliki and 15 minutes drive from Parikia the main village.
The building is a small structure divided into two parts.
One part is a room with check-in counters, a small kiosk, toilets, and at the end of the room, there is an entrance to the waiting room. From there, a bus will take you to the plane.
The second part is the arrivals area. When you get off the plane, the bus will take you to this area. Inside, there is a door to the luggage conveyor belt. At the end of the conveyor belt, there are car rental services for those who need them, and then the exit door to Paros Island. It's quick and easy - welcome, you've arrived!
Outside, there is a coffee bar with food, snacks, and drinks. Across the street, there is a car park where you don't have to pay for parking... for now.
There is a plan to expand the airport and make it international, but this plan has been around for many years, and even though processes have started, an international airport has not yet been established.
