Olympic and Sky Express fly to Rhodes from Heraklion (1 hour, €100) at least three times per day and Olympic flies several times a week from Thessaloniki (1¼ hours, €117). It is possible to fly directly to Rhodes from a number of European capitals, especially on charters. To Kos, Olympic Airlines runs three daily flights from Athens, and three flights a week from Rhodes. Schedules are reduced in winter. Neither Patmos nor Symi have airports.
