Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Mykonos Airport.

What to Expect

For the many travellers that fly here during the peak summer season, Mykonos Airport has a small terminal with basic facilities. The terminal may be undergoing expansion or modernization in the next two years. For now, you’ll find three snack bars (landside, Schengen Zone, and non-Schengen Zone), as well as a few basic shops. Free WiFi helps pass the time. For added comfort while you wait, economy class passengers can pay to enter an airport lounge. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for location and access information.

Where to Sleep

The airport closes daily by 6:00PM, reopening mid-morning, so overnight stays are not possible. For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer free shuttle service. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.

A reader sent us this review in September 2018: “There is public transit available, at least during high season. It is 2€ and goes to Fabrika which is basically downtown Mykonos and the bus hub that connects to all over the island including the ports. They are tourist busses with under carriage storage for luggage, you can buy your ticket from the driver who can make change. Bus stop is at the end of the terminal, exit and turn right.”
