Flying to Rhodes from Meis (Kastelorizo)
There are 3 flights per week from Meis to Rhodes.  The flight time is approximately 45 minutes.  To check times and book flights go to:  www.intickets.gr/en_index.asp

A few more tips
If you are using price comparison sites remember that you may get a price in one currency on the comparison site, but when you get transferred to the flight operator to book, they may quote in another currency.  For example, you may see a Skyscanner price in sterling but when put through to book the price is in euros.  It's not a problem, but you may initially think the price has changed!

ABTA & ATOL
It is always advisable to deal with operators who conform to industry codes, such as ABTA and ATOL.  If you want to check whether a company is a member of these groups you can do so by going to the relevant website.  Here are the links you need.  ABTA  &  ATOL 

Please note that ATOL protection only generally works for flights booked in the UK.  If you are in Turkey, booking a flight back to the UK, the chances are you are not protected by the ATOL scheme.  Click here to read more about this

Protection if paying by credit and debit card
And remember, if you use your credit card to book a flight you have the additional peace of mind of knowing you will get your money back if the company goes bust.  You can also get some protection with debit cards.  Check out the following links, for more information.

Which - your rights when paying by credit card

What Consumer - debit card chargeback

What Consumer - if the airline goes bust

What Consumer - if the tour operator goes bust

UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office Advice
You may also want to check for the latest travel advice from the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO).  This link takes you to the FCO home page and here is the link to the FCO page on Turkey.  You will find some really excellent advice and information here.

Travel Insurance
It should go without saying that if you are travelling abroad it is advisable to take out travel insurance.  If you need medical attention you will find there is no free NHS in Turkey.
