Booking travel tickets
If booking your tickets online, Lesvos (Lesbos) is often described as “Mytilene” by most search engines, airlines and ferry boat operators or just type MJT.
Every day there are boats from Piraeus (Athens). Most leave in the evening, the faster one takes 8 hours and the other ones take 12 hours.
The earlier you book with Aegean airlines or Olympic, the cheaper the tickets will be as they both have special offers for early bookings.
There are also direct flights from different European countries. Below is a list of some of the ones we know, if anyone knows of others please let us know.

Ferries come and go most days during the summer months.
