Rhodes’ Airport is nicknamed “Diagoras,” and is 9 miles southwest of the main city of Rhodes.
When Is The Cheapest Time To Travel To Rhodes?
It’s the cheapest to travel to Rhodes when Europeans are still hard at work during the spring, fall, and winter. During the summer, temperatures in Rhodes are hot, but the influx of tourists from all over Europe can make getting a ticket extremely pricey. Don’t worry about the inclement weather in the other months; Rhodes never gets very cold or very hot outside of the summer.
Which Carriers Fly To Rhodes?
The carriers that fly to roads vary drastically depending on the season.
Year round, only Ryanair, Sky Express, Olympic Air, Aegean Airlines, and Ellinair fly to Rhodes.
In the summer, the following carriers fly to Rhodes:
- Adria Airways
- Austrian Airlines
- Azur Air Germany
- BlueBird Airways
- Brussels Airways
- Cyprus Airways
- Edelweiss Air
- Mistral Air
- Sun D’Or
- Wizz Air
Keep in mind that you’ll be paying a premium for summer service to Rhodes because of all the competition from other tourists that you’ll face.
How Do I Get to Rhodes Itself?
Once you touch down at Rhodes Airport, you have a few options for getting into Rhodes itself. The bus system in Rhodes is quite good, and taking the number 23 or 35 bus will take you directly down town in short order.
Taking a taxi or renting a car are two other options. Rentals are affordable but might be a bit overkill if you’re only going to be in Rhodes for a few days. Taxis have a regimented rate to take you downtown and should get you to wherever you need to go with a minimum of hassle. Remember to leave a tip for your driver.
