Transfer and Taxi from Lemnos International Airport “Hephaestus” (LXS)
After the arrival into new cities, people have to face up with a question about transportation. Large towns provide a possibility to come by plane into their domestic airport. But what passengers should do further? If you wish to avoid waiting for a shuttle bus (which does not often come on schedule) you can try transportation offered by taxi service. It is also possible to save some money if you pay attention to the route planning beforehand.
Lemnos Airport “Hephaestus”
Lemnos International Airport “Hephaestus” lies in 22 kilometers east to Mirna, a beautiful center of Lemnos Island.
The airport building started to work in 1959. In May 2001 it was fully refurbished and expanded the total area.
The airport was named after Hephaestus, the Greek god of fire. The ancient Greek mythology depicts an episode, when the god Hephaestus was dumped from Olympus, and fell onto Lemnos Island. The local inhabitants provided the necessary cure for him. After that, Hephaestus made them acquainted with the blacksmith’s art. He created his workshops on the volcano, existing on the island during those times. It is one of the reasons why the ancient writers called Lemnos the “Island of Hephaestus”.
The domestic flights have a schedule for the entire year. In summer, charter flights also come to/from European cities.
The airport terminal has been in operation since 2001. It offers various services, among which are: a cafeteria, duty-free shops, an information desk, a police station, a parking lot for 300 vehicles, car rental offices and an office of the weather forecast. The airport covers the area of 6500 square meters. The length of its landing strip is 3 016 meters. It is thought to be one of the largest runaways on the Balkans.

The Cost of Transfer from Lemnos International Airport
The airport is well-connected to the neighboring areas by means of taxi service providers. The cost of a taxi drive depends on the destination and time of the day. The bus service does not ensure transportation facilities in the area of the airport.
In the area of arrivals, you can see a taxi service. It provides shuttle facilities during the airport’s hours of work. Remember: you cannot choose the car you like. There is an unspoken queue among the taxi drivers. There is also no possibility to choose services to improve the level of comfort. The taxi service is actually the only means of transportation within the area. Its quality of service leaves much to be desired.
If you wish to have a stress-free start of a trip and avoid all the difficulties with transportation, you should shape a route and request for a transfer in advance. The quality of its service is far more competitive than taxi service. The final cost of a transfer may be even lower due to the absence of hidden fees. In addition, it provides all the necessary amenities absolutely free of charge. The final payment is calculated from the cost of transportation and the class of a vehicle. The customers get to know it right after the booking. The final payment for service is made at the end of a trip in any convenient way. Note that no prepayments are needed.
