Although in the vicinity of Kavala, more precisely at a distance of 40 km from Kavala in the village of Chrysoupoli, there is an airport, there is no direct flight from Serbia to there. It is possible to reach Thessaloniki or Athens by plane from Belgrade.

From Thessaloniki, you can reach Kavala by bus, following the instructions in the section Bus to Thassos, additionally knowing that a regular bus line number 78 operates from Thessaloniki airport (in front of the check-in hall) to the main bus station in Thessaloniki. In the summer season, the bus departs every 15-30 minutes, while in the winter season it departs every 30-45 minutes, covering the mentioned route in 50 minutes. It is possible to transfer to a plane to Kavala from Athens, but this is certainly a very unfavorable option in every sense (it takes longer, costs more). When arriving at Kavala airport from Athens or any other European city, it is advisable to transfer to the port in Keramoti, which is closer to the airport than the port in Kavala, and from there take a ferry to Thassos, specifically to the town of Limenas. The only transportation option from the airport to Keramoti is by taxi. As it is about ten kilometers from the airport to Keramoti, the taxi ride should not last longer than ten minutes and should not be expensive.

You can obtain information about flights from Belgrade to Thessaloniki and Athens by calling the number +381 11 2094444 or visiting the website of Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport.

The German low-cost airline Germanwings has direct flights from several European cities to Kavala, with Zagreb being the closest to us. However, when considering the travel time and cost from Serbia to Zagreb, as well as the flight time and cost of the ticket to Kavala, this journey is not at all comfortable or affordable. Those who still find this option attractive can obtain more information at the Belgrade representation of Germanwings, at their office at Belgrade Airport, or by calling +381 11 2094863, every day from 7 am to 7 pm, or on their website: .

Although Thassos does not have its own airport, the two mainland airports (near Keramoti and Thessaloniki) are relatively close and easily accessible from the island. The choice between them depends primarily on where you are traveling from.

The Kavala International Airport Alexander the Great is smaller and closest to the island, offering the shortest route to Thassos. It only takes 15 minutes to drive to the port in Keramoti, from where the ferries to Thassos depart.

Thessaloniki Airport is larger and farther from the island. It takes two hours to drive from the airport to the port in Kavala and two and a half hours to Keramoti.
