You can find Samos International Airport in 15 kilometers southwest from the city of Samos. The building was launched into work in 1963. Samos Airport services regular flights to Athens and Thessaloniki round the year. In summer people can also travel to lots of European cities.

The strong winds usually blow from the north in the summer. This often causes some difficulties for the landing of fights.
The airport building bears the name of Aristarchos, an Ancient Greek astronomer and mathematician, who was born on the island of Samos. He was the first scholar (after Pythagoreans), who suggested the heliocentric model of the solar system, according to which the Sun, not the Earth, was set into the center of the Universe.
