Right up on Rhodes' northern coast is Rhodes International Airport, commonly called Diagoras Airport. It's 10 miles west of Rhodes Old Town (less than 30 minutes by car) and it's about the same distance and travel time to Faliraki. 

Hitting the big resort towns further south, such as Lindos, Lardos, Pefkos and Fourni? Factor in a transfer of an hour to 90 minutes from Rhodes International Airport. You may wish to hop in your transfer quickly as the reviews of RHO aren't exactly stellar. Still, it's the only airport on this Greek island, and you don't come to Rhodes for the airport.

Top tips for cheap flights to Rhodes 

While summer is undoubtedly the peak season for Rhodes and its resorts, it doesn't mean that flight prices always shoot up too. The sheer number of airlines that pile into Rhodes International Airport from April to October means that with a few tips and tricks you might find a bargain: 

  • Can you avoid the school summer holidays? Prices tend to go up when the kids are out. 
  • Can you fly midweek? International flights are often more expensive around the weekend. 
  • Book far in advance - prices change while flights are on sale and tend to increase. 
  • But if there's spare seats, airlines can slash prices. Yet there's no guarantee this will happen. 
  • Block out your diary. If you're flexible with your dates, you can play around more to find cheap flights. 
  • Don't always book a return with the same airline. Two singles with different carriers can be less. 
  • Flying indirect with a transfer can bring down the cost of flights, but this is usually one for long-haul flights.  

Whoever you fly with and whenever you want to go, compare before booking. You might make some serious savings when it comes to cheap flights to Rhodes.
