Rhodes: Getting There

You get to Rhodes from Athens after about 45 minutes of flight. The island has two airports but only one is used for commercial purposes.

The international airport Diagoras is located at 17km from the city, near the village of Paradissi. There are regular daily flights to Athens, to Heraklion Crete, and to Thessaloniki. Rodos is also connected with the neighbouring islands of Kastellorizo, Karpathos, and Kassos.
There are also regular international flights to and from Italy, England, Germany and Israel, mostly during the summer, as well as a big number of chartered flights to and from all around the world.
A public bus service connects the airport to the city.

For information on flights you can call:
Olympic Airways at 210 9666666 (Athens) or 22410 24555 (Rhodes)
or 22410 92839 (Diagoras airport)
Aegean Air / Air Greece at 22410 36095 (Rhodes)

The commercial harbour is situated in the city. All international and domestic ferries dock here as well as all the cruise liners.

There are regular ferry lines connecting Rhodes with Athens (Pireaus), Thessaloniki, Heraklion, Cyprus and Turkey.

Rodos is also connected with all the neighbouring islands through extensive boat and hydrofoil services. Most of them dock at the commercial port and some at the Mandraki harbour.

Schedules information is available at the Harbour's Master Office.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The ferries sail when the weather is considered suitable and stable conditions are predicted. If the weather is bad, sailings will be cancelled (not often - but there are a few such days every year), and you should be accommodated on the next available sailing. 

ADVICE: Allow flexibility in your schedule when traveling by ferry as part of an ongoing journey. If delayed, see some of the sights of interest you may have missed! The shipping companies are prone to changing which ships they use on any given route - so as always, call to check if you want to book on a particular ship.
