These Domestic Scheduled flights take just 50 minutes to reach Mytilini.
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.

There are reasonably good bus services cross the island, especially between Molivos and Mitilini. In May to September there is a local bus service all day long from Eftalou to Molivos to Petra and then to Anaxos and back. However, there is a less frequent winter service. There is a taxi rank just outside the town and fares are reasonable. A car is really not necessary within Molivos but if you wish to explore the whole island it would certainly be an advantage. There is a large port in Mytilini with daily sailings to Athens (about 9 hours) and Chios, and also frequent sailings to Limnos and Rhodes.

To avoid you getting lost we reccomend you to let us arrange a taxi to your accommodation or you can take the local bus, but please let us know when you will leave from Mitilini so we can arange to meet you or wait for you at Molivos bus station.
