Greece Iland flights - Any service from Naxos to Athens?

Hi,
I've been trying to locate some information on flight availability from Naxos to Athens, but have not been successful. I see that there is (was?) a domestic airport in Naxos, but am not sure where or how to determine what airline(s) operate out of this airport. I know that the ferry service is an option, but where it does take a few hours (I believe close to 5) I was curious about the flight times to Athens.
Thank you as always for your comments and suggestions - they are appreciated!
Jenn

Hi. Olympic Airlines flies from Naxos to Athens. I'm not sure what your travel date is, but they usually have 1 flight daily, and some days an additional one I think. Fare is 58E. Just check out their website and plug your information in to see what's available. We recently flew Olympic from Athens to Paros and had no problems at all. Aegean Airlines often has sales, but they don't fly to Naxos. Hope this helps.

Yes, one daily flight, plus an extra early morning one on Sundays, last time I checked. The runway is too short for Aegean Airways' jets, so Olympic turboprops are your only choice.

Hi

We flew Olympic using turboprops from Athens to Paros return. No problems. Just check their site for baggage limits issues though. I believe flights in high season are very popular so I would recommend booking ASAP.

Yes, one flight daily, Olympic Airlines, we did this in May. The Naxos airport is an experience not to be missed.
