To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Skiathos Alexandros Papadiamantis Airport.
What to Expect
- A small single-terminal airport, served mainly by seasonal international flights. Shopping and dining options are minimal and very pricey.
- Ineffective air-conditioning and uncomfortable seating, making for a very hot and uncomfortable wait.
- During peak travel times, the airport seems ill-equipped to handle the amount of passengers that travel through. Seating and bathroom stalls can seem scarce!
