===By plane===
Mykonos has an airport ({{IATA|JMK}}) [], about 4km away from the main town. There are daily flights from [[Athens]] airport (35 minutes) by Olympic Air [http] and Aegean Airlines []. During summer both Olympic Air and Aegean Airlines have daily direct flights from [[Thessaloniki]].
In high season there are also less frequent flights from [[Rhodes]], [[Santorini]], [[Crete]] ([[Heraklion]]) and [[Volos]] by Sky Express []. During the months of July and August Astra Airlines [] flies from [[Thessaloniki]].
From May till October charter airlines fly directly to Mykonos from many European airports.
* Air Berlin [] flies from Berlin Tegel (TXL), Düsseldorf (DUS) , Hamburg (HAM), Munich (MUC), Nuremberg (NUE) and Vienna (VIE);
* Atlasjet [] and Borajet [] fly from Istanbul Sabiha-Gökçen (SAW);
* British Airways [] flies from London Heathrow (LHR)
* Lauda Air [] flies from Vienna (VIE);
* German Wings [] flies from Cologne/Bonn (CGN);
* Ryan Air [] flies from Frankfurt am Main (FRA);
* Meridiana [] flies from Bologna (BLQ), Milan Malpensa (MXP), Rome Fiumicino (FCO) and Verona (VRN);
* ThomasCook [] and Jetairfly [] fly from Brussels (BRU);
Taxis are usually waiting at the airport, at the taxi rank opposite the terminal building, but competition for them can be keen. If there is no taxi waiting you can see the sign with the phone numbers of the taxi radio office so you may call. A taxi from Mykonos airport to town costs about € 8, a few euros more if you are carrying luggage.
During high season there is an infrequent public bus service from the airport to the southern bus terminal, Fabrika, in Mykonos Town. A bus ticket costs € 1.6080. The bus leaves the southern bus terminal in Mykonos Town at 12:15PM and 1.45PM, and then is scheduled to go back from the airport to Fabrika 10 minutes later. As the schedule changes every two weeks those times might change a little. It is not really worth waiting around for a bus unless it is already there. This bus service is not useful if you have to go to the (old or new) port.
Keep in mind that due to Greek rules and regulations the number of taxis are extremely limited on islands. The number of taxis is a derivation of the number of people living there. Mykonos with around 3000 people has just 30 Taxis. At the airport there is no chance for a Taxi during season. Always pre-book a transfer befor arrival.
Mykonos has an extensive public transport system from Mykonos Town. By public transport it is easy to get to all the southern beaches, which happen to be the nicest beaches as well. Renting a motorbike or a car is the way to go if you want to explore the rest of the island, especially the more remote beaches at the north coast. Motorbike and car rentals are readily available around the island. In Mykonos Town the highest concentration of rent a car - motorbike agencies is in and around the area of the southern busstation, where you will find a wide range of choices. The other area of Mykonos Town with rent a car - motorbike agencies is near to the old port, behind the Archaeological Museum.

In Mykonos Town you will find most of the restaurants and eateries. All over town there are various ''gyros'' and ''souvlaki'' shops and creperies where you can eat quite well for just a few euros. Mykonos offers dining options catering to a range of tastes and budgets. You can have good Greek food at reasonable prices, but it also easy to spend a fortune. Almost all restaurants (and many bars) post their prices on menus at the entrance, so as you walk around you can take a look to see which places offer appealing food in your budget range. Restaurants facing the harbour or the sea (especially in Little Venice) tend to have significantly higher prices, because you are also paying for the location and the view. Restaurants in the streets deeper in the heart of town tend to be more reasonably priced.

The cheapest way to call someone abroad is – and this is really cheap - to use a pre-paid calling card and call from a land line anywhere (also from your hotel room). Pre-paid calling cards are sold in many shops and kiosks in Mykonos Town. The calling card is not much more than a phone number and a pin code, which you dial prior to dialing the usual phone number. If you want to call internationally , ask for a ''international'' calling card. For one euro you can call for about 45 minutes, so buy a card in the cheapest value (which is about 3 euros). Calling someone for half an hour is cheaper than sending one email from an internet café. Cards expire usually 90 days after first use.
You can use this pre-paid calling card also at public phone boxes, which are widely available in Mykonos Town, though there are a lot of broken phone boxes as well.
