Kos flight FAQs

You can fly from London Gatwick (LGW) to Kos International Airport (KGS) in approximately four hours.

We fly from London to Kos between May and October and the peak season runs from June to August, so it may be cheaper to fly outside of these busy summer months. To find the cheapest flights to Kos, search our low fare finder.

One of the most affordable Greek Islands to visit, Kos is a great destination for a range of budgets. With a laid-back atmosphere and an abundance of beaches, you can choose from a variety of accommodation options, including luxurious resorts and more modest apartments and hotels. Plus, you can easily find inexpensive tavernas and local places to eat and drink in Kos Town and Kardamena.

Kos Island International Airport (KGS) is south-west of Kos Town. Grab a taxi from the front of the terminal or hop on a public bus. They run at regular intervals throughout the day and take around 40 minutes. If you’re staying in Kardamena or Kefalos, we’d recommend pre-booking a transfer before you go to save money and avoid the queues. Alternatively, KTEL buses can take you to the island’s popular resorts from outside Kos Airport.

You can also hire a car with British Airways if you want to get out of the city and see more of what Kos 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.

The second largest Dodecanese Island after Rhodes, Kos is known for its endless beaches, Ancient Greek ruins and charming seaside villages surrounded by rolling fields of wildflowers. Explore Kos Town with its imposing Medieval castle overlooking the palm tree-lined harbour or enjoy fresh seafood at one of the local tavernas. From the lively bars of Kardamena and the exclusive resorts in Mastichari and Kamari, to the quaint mountain village of Zia at the base of Mount Dikaios, there’s truly something for everyone on this picturesque island.

If you travel to Greece with a valid British passport and stay for less than 90 days, a visa is not required. If you’re from a country outside the EU, you may need to apply for a visa in advance of your trip.
