Throughout the entire year Lesvos Island is connected to the mainland of Greece through flights and ferries. Mytilini International Airport “Odysseas Elytis” (MJT) has daily flights arriving from Athens and thessaloniki, as well as several other islands. During the summer season certain European countries also offer charter flights that fly directly to the island, without making a stop-over on the mainland.
Ferries connect Lesvos with other islands such as Chios and Limnos, as well as the main ports of Pireaus (Western Athens) and Kavala (Northern Greece). A journey from the port of Piraeus typically takes 12 hours and is usually overnight. All passenger ferries have first and economy classes, cabins, bars, restaurants and other services that can make the journey to the island quite enjoyable.
Lesvos Island is also connected to Ayvalik in Turkey. In summer there are daily ferries between the ports of Mytilini and Ayvalik, and prices are usually very reasonable. A valid passport or ID card is required when travelling outside of Europe, and this also applies to any children/babies that may travel with you. Note that our office can only organise tickets from Lesvos to Turkey, and not the other way round.
For most accurate and current information on ferry and flight routes, as well as prices and availability for tickets, we recommend that you send us a message. Our ticketing services are not limited to Lesvos Island, we can also organise your flights/ferries to other areas in Greece.
