JMK 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

mykonos airport guideFor the many travellers that fly here during the peak summer season, Mykonos Airport (code: JMK) 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, there is a lounge that you have access to. See Airport Lounges in the 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 the Airport Hotels section below for locations or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.

Covid-19 Update

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all services and times listed below are subject to change. Some services and facilities may remain closed or operate with reduced hours.  Airport tips and suggestions in this guide and elsewhere on the site were written before March 2020 and may no longer be valid. If you are planning to sleep in the public area of the terminal overnight, have a back-up plan! We’ve heard from a few travellers at other airports and they were not permitted to stay overnight. We’re not sure if that will apply to this airport, until a reader lets us know the current situation. We will start updating all of our guides in October 2021.  To help us with this massive update, you can add or update information or write a review and submit photos and airport tips.

For more airport information continue scrolling down to explore more in our Mykonos Airport Guide.

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.  For more information on Europe’s Schengen Area, click here.
