Getting there:

If I wanted to go from Athen to Kastelorizo what are the quickest travel option(s)? As well, what are the quickest travel options to get from Kastelorizo to Santorini?

Thank you

I'm certainly no expert, and have never been there, but all the information points to the quickest way being flying to and from via Rhodes:

Presuming you are going in summer, it also looks like skyexpress fly from Rhodes to Santorini as well on your return:

Apart fro Olympic flights from Rhodes and Athens, Kastellorizo is also connected to Rhodes by ferry - see Dodekanisos Seaways (once per week in the summer) and Blue Star ferries (2-3 times per week throughout the year) for details.

I think Sky Express dropped that Rhodes to Santorini connection a few years ago, it does not fly to Santorini even from Crete now. The airport information is seriously out of date. Depending on the time of year, there are two to five ferries a week from Rhodes to Santorini.

Flying in and out of Rhodos is the quickest way, however this is a smal airport and serves only a small airplane.

Seats go very fast and be prepared for no-fly. If there is no wind or too much wind the airplane does not fly.

This is not very often but happens.

To reach Rhodos, anything really, boat or airplane.
