Skiathos Airport

Skiathos Airport ‘Alexandros Papadiamantis’ (IATA: JSI, ICAO: LGSK) is the airport of Skiathos Island. Its 5,341-foot runway is able to accommodate aircraft up to the size of a Boeing 757-200. The runway is characterised as 'short and narrow' yet even wider aircrafts have landed without problems.

Because of the uneven terrain on the island of Skiathos, Skiathos Airport was created by reclaiming land from the sea between Skiathos island and the smaller island of Lazareta (a former leper colony) effectively joining the two islands into one larger island.
