Airport Overview

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!

Where to Sleep

  • As of May 2017, we have no reviews from travellers who have attempted to sleep in this airport. Write a review to help future travellers!
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
