Flights to Paros

You might want to look for flights to Athens and flights from Athens to Paros separately. It seems that it is cheaper this way. Also, the prices are a bit high right now – you might be able to find some more offers later on next year, but do not wait too long. These airlines fly from Athens to Paros:



If you need to fly in a day or more earlier, or leave later, let us know, and we will ask Alea to give the best rate they can.
