Access to Lesvos: The capital of Lesvos is Mytilene. The only Airport on the island is there, as the ferry is departing from there too.

Arrival by Airplane: The Mytilene International Airport "Odysseus Elytis" (MJT) is situated on the south eastern side of the island, 8 km out of Mytilene (capital). Transfer from and to this airport is available upon request. It receives daily flights from Athens all year round and the flight time is 1 hour.
