Mykonos Airport (JMK)
Located approximately 3.5 km southeast from the town of Mykonos (also known as Chora), Mykonos Airport serves over 350,000 passengers per year. During the busier summer months, Mykonos Airport receives international and charter flights from cities such as Rome and Venice and a limited number of domestic flights during the winter months (Athens and Thessaloniki). Due to the increase in travelers throughout the busy season, Fraport-Greece - an organization created in 2015 responsible for maintaining, operating, managing, and upgrading 14 airports located in Greece over the next 40 years - has made plans to expand the terminal by 50% providing more check-in counters, departure gates, and security-check lanes.
After you’ve grabbed a snack from the cafeteria, exchanged money at the ATM, and visited the Hellenic Duty Free Shop, pick up your car hire from the appropriate car hire kiosk, confirm your rental details and set off to begin your adventure on Mykonos island!
