The island of Mykonos is where the entire world wants to be. The season starts in April and ends in October. What brings the celebrated and the party seekers to this island that leaves everyone wishing for more of the blue waters and gorgeous white villas? Well, it has been a celebrity hangout for decades. Those who are choosing their anonymity hide around Eschoinusa, a smaller rocky outpost with a small village and one restaurant. There are plenty of secluded beaches, and then there are other beaches like Paradiso, Super Paradise. Fashionistas, Social media influencers, and Worlds Billionaires are in the playground. The parties start, and they seem never to end (the reason why breakfast at most hotels serve until 11 am).
Since 2016, Mykonos Airport has had strict slot time restrictions for private jets and the airlines. Basically, from May to October, one can only drop-off their passengers and reposition their private plane elsewhere, and no, you cannot just take it to Athens Airport for more than 48 hours overnight.
So what are the options now, with heavy slot restrictions and no parking but just a drop off at Mykonos? Icarus Jet offers an exclusively curated, one of a kind beautiful Augusta 139 and Colibri H-125 and H-135 helicopters, Robinson R-44 from Athens. Flight times in the helicopter from Athens to Mykonos is 55 minutes, and we can drop you off Kalo Livadi, Scorpios, Ornos beach. Thus not needing a slot time in or out of Mykonos airport. Some of our magnificent blue water trips on helicopters are from Athens to Mykonos and Mykonos to Paros, Mykonos to Anti Paros, Mykonos to Santorini.
Please note that the helicopters fly in day time only, and there are no flights offered at night time. There are weight restrictions on the luggage and the passengers, so please make sure that all the weights of the baggage and the passengers are listed correctly during the time of booking.
