It's recommended to book your transportation in advance, especially during peak season (July-August), as ferries and catamarans can fill up quickly. Below are some common options.
The nearest airport to Ios is the Santorini International Airport (JTR), which is located on the neighboring island of Santorini. From there, you can take a ferry or catamaran to Ios. Many airlines operate flights to Santorini from major cities in Europe.
Catamarans are faster than ferries and provide a smoother ride, but are generally more expensive. There are several catamaran companies that operate routes to Ios, including SeaJets, Golden Star Ferries, and Hellenic Seaways.
Ios is well connected by ferry to other islands in the Cyclades, as well as to Athens (3 hrs) and other ports in mainland Greece. Ferries depart from Piraeus (the main port of Athens), as well as from other ports such as Rafina and Lavrio. You can also take ferries from other islands such as Santorini (45 mins), Mykonos, Naxos, and Paros.
If you prefer a more luxurious and hassle-free option, you can arrange for a private transfer from Athens or Santorini to Ios. Many companies offer private transfers by car, van, or helicopter.
