Flights & getting there
The Dodecanese are serviced by flights from all over Europe and beyond. Domestically Olympic Air and Sky Express connect you with islands in this chain, including Rhodes, Kos, Leros, Karpathos, Kasos, Kastellorizo, Kalymnos and Astypalea.
The two major ferry companies are Blue Star Ferries and Dodekanisos Seaways. Smaller boats (not on major ferry schedules) also connect some neighbouring islands. Occasionally if licensed, smaller excursion boats are permitted to carry passengers one way only (but always check first).
