Kos International Airport is the major airport for cheap flights to and from Kos. The IATA code for this airport is KGS and it also goes by the name of Hippocrates Airport. From centre city Kos (Altar of Dionysus), it is located at a distance of 23 kilometres.
Owing to its Mediterranean climate, Kos experiences a peak-season every summer. The months of May, June and July are known to attract crowds from all over the globe. The climate maintains itself at a temperature of 25 °C (on average) throughout the peak-season. Since it is quite windy all year round, a warmer season complements it. During winters, winds get chilly and irritating.
Low-season in Kos begins with the arrival of winter (November), alleviates a bit during Christmas season and carries on in January and February. The average temperature is persistently under 15 °C with cool winds and humidity. This is the time when hotel prices and airline tickets go down in prices.
