Syros Island Transportation: 14 reviews and 14 photos
The people of Syros did manage to build an airport on the island of Syros, although sites were limited. Basically, in the area of Mana, they "sliced" a mountain to enable to build a runway and terminal builidng! The airport code for Syros is JSY.
On both ends of the runway, the landscape drops almost like a cliff! So, you better hope the pilot lands it nicely and the brakes work! Don't worry, no incidents have ever occured since the airport was built.
Syros is mainly serviced by Olympic Airlines to/from Athens International Airport. Before the Highspeed ferries arrived, there used to be 3 daily services. These days, it usually has only 1 daily service.
It takes about 30 minutes, so it's quick. Most probably more convenient for those who are transferring to/from other flights. If you are flying into Athens, it would be advantageous to connect on a flight to Syros if your intention is to go straight there.
The airport is close to Ermoupolis, so a taxi won't cost too much if you're staying in Ermoupolis. If the flight arrived from the north, you can get a really nice view of Ermoupolis, as seen in the pictures I have posted.
