Look at our travel link how to get on Lesbos during off season or have a look below:
All year round you can travel via Athens or Thessalonica:
There are two companies: Olympic and Aegean. Do not forget that you do not pay airport taxes twice if your flight to Lesbos is not later than 24 hours from your previous flight. It's worth checking with Olympic Airways or Aegean Airlines , particularly if it's not high season and provided you book well in advance. They will often quote competitive prices right through to Mytilini (MJT), with the advantage that your baggage is checked through to your final destination.
You can travel every day all year round through Athens Airport and take a local flight from there to Lesbos - Mitilini (Airport MJT). If you like you can take a ferrie/boat trip from Port Athens/Piraeus to Lesbos port Mitilini (MJT).
All year round for people who might looking for a cheaper way to travel you can take a flight via Turkey with Turkish Airlines through the Izmir-airport where you will need a ferry trip to Lesbos, there will be a shuttel /bus (2 hours trip) going from Izmir-airport to Dikili harbor/port because it is close to Lesbos (Mitlini port/harbor).
