Flights to Kalamata

There’s more to Kalamata than just world-famous olives. This coastal city sits on the ruins of the ancient metropolis of Pharae, nestled between the towering Taygetos Mountains and the electric blue of the Mediterranean Sea. There’s so much to explore here, from lively late-night tavernas to tiny old-fashioned wine bars and time-stamped whitewashed churches.

Kalamata flight FAQs

A flight from London Heathrow (LHR) to Kalamata Airport (KLX) takes three hours and 40 minutes.

The most popular time to visit Kalamata is between June and August, so you could save by heading there at a different time of year. Try spring, when the city has warm weather and a lot less rain than the winter months. Have a look at our low fare finder to find out more.

If you’re heading off to Kalamata, you can make your trip fit whatever budget you’re working with. This city can be very affordable compared to other more touristy regions in Greece. There’s a vibrant, colourful food market as well as a huge host of local tavernas where you can explore authentic Greek dishes at reasonable prices.

Kalamata is a compact city, so it’s relatively simple to get around. The airport is only around a 10- minute drive from the city centre and it’s easy to catch a bus or a taxi from just outside the terminal. Once you’re in the city centre, most things are walkable – and if they’re not, Kalamata has public transport connecting different parts of the city.

You could also hire a car with British Airways if you want to get out of the city and see more of what the Messenia region has to offer. You’ll receive great benefits, with all mandatory charges included and 24-hour customer support, plus you’ll collect Avios points on every rental.

Kalamata is a relaxed oceanfront city surrounded by natural beauty – from mountains to olive groves and sandy beaches. The Taygetos Mountains are popular for hiking, and you can enjoy the clear-as-glass Messenian Gulf with paddleboarding, kayaking or sailing. There’s also so much rich history here, which you can discover at the Archaeological Museum of Messenia and the Church of Ypapanti. Kalamata is also a foodie paradise, with many culinary delights to sample. Try pasteli, a crunchy sesame seed dessert, talagani cheese, a grilled sheep’s cheese, as well as Kalamata olives.
