Travel to Skiathos

What is the most cost effective way to travel to Skiathos (final destination is Nostos)?? I am coming from Nevada, USA. Athens? Volos? Flying directly to Skiathos is not an option - it’s $5,500 USD haha

Thank you!

From the States, normally the cheapest and most convenient route would be via Athens, and then connect with the daily hopper to Skiathos if you are arriving peak season, it is only a half hour flight.

'Mr Google' suggests - Vegas/Chicago then Istanbul/Athens (Turkish)

I would go Vegas/New York then New York/Athens (Emirates)

Then Athens/Skiathos on the hopper.

Sounds like fun ...

WE go to Skiathos every other year from Seattle. Normally we go to London, then Athens, and then the short hop over to Skiathos. WE are going there that way this year, but are coming back by Condor Air. They go Seattle-Frankfurt and then Frankfurt to Skiathos. Days are limited but it is a great connection. Condor is expanding beyond just being a traditional charter flight. I know they also fly out of Portland, Vancouver and I assume other cities in the US.

Well done, we get people here getting stressed about making a 3.5 hour flight and changing in Athens. You fly a third of the way round the world to get to the island.

Condors UK branch (Thomas Cook) have had offers on UK/USA flights too ...
