Regarding flight availability, a range of regular and low-cost carriers operate directly to Kos Airport (KGS) with seasonal or charter flights. Ryanair operates several seasonal direct flights from a number of European cities (Liverpool, London-Stansted and Leeds from England, Frankfurt-Hahn from Germany, Oslo-Rygge from Norway, Kaunas from Lithuania, Krakow from Poland and Rome, Pisa, Bologna and Bergamo from Italy). These flights are usually operated on a weekly basis to Kos and can be combined with other Ryanair flights so Kos can be reached from most European cities.  Other low-cost companies offer direct seasonal flights as well; Transavia offers weekly flights to Kos from a number of cities in the Netherlands, Air Berlin and Germanwings connect a number of German cities with the island, Norwegian Air offers departures from several Scandinavian airports.

Apart from direct seasonal flights, regular flights from Athens (ATH) and Thessaloniki (SKG) airports are offered by Aegean and Olympic Airways. Aegean might be an interesting option for inter-connected routes between Star Alliance member airlines (like Lufthansa). Kos could be also reached from neighboring locations, even though this is a more complex and time-consuming option. The island of Rhodes is a popular tourist destination in close proximity, with many incoming flights from different carriers, and it is frequently connected with Kos with a 3-hour ferry (with a cost of approx. 40-50 € per person with a return ticket).
