Welcoming nearly four million passengers each year, Rhodes Diagoras International Airport is the fourth-busiest airport in Greece, and a convenient entry-point for those looking to access the gorgeous coastal resorts of Ialissos, Kremasti, Kritika, Sotoni and Theologos.
Cheap flights to Rhodes Diagoras Airport are harder to find in the summer months (May-August), when hundreds of chartered planes arrive from European and Middle Eastern destinations – so if you’re operating on a tight schedule, be sure to book early.
Whether you’re a culture buff, seeking out the site of the Colossus of Rhodes (one of the seven wonders of the ancient world) or whether you’ve planned a more reptilian approach to your time abroad (lie in the sun all day and move as little as possible) – Rhodes Diagoras Airport will be a pain-free first port of call on your big Greek adventure.
