Have you ever heard of a sneezing bird? We neither. With the COVID-19 taking over the land routes and preventing human contact, the skies remain a safe place to go – provided that you somehow manage to avoid other travelers. But how? Well, commercial aircraft is not the only option, you know.
Helicopter travel is for everybody. While flights to Mykonos are the easiest way to reach the island of the winds from Athens International Airport and beyond, some travellers are dissuaded from this convenient method of transport by a few common misconceptions. At Alpha Mykonos Concierge, we offer helicopter experience that is safe, convenient, affordable and suitable for all – whatever your reason for travelling. In a myth-busting exercise, we highlight and dispel five common misconceptions about travelling by helicopter to encourage everyone to grab the opportunity.
- MISCONCEPTION: HELICOPTER TRAVEL IS EXPENSIVE.
Understandably, many people believe that helicopter charter flights in Mykonos cost a small fortune and that the heliport is a hangout reserved only for the jet-set population. After all, such a spectacular and convenient means of travel deserves to be expensive and exclusive. Nevertheless, you may be surprised to learn just how affordable helicopter travel can be. If you are traveling with family or a group, our luxury helicopters can be privately rented from as little as €1,400.
- MISCONCEPTION: HELICOPTER TRAVEL IS NOT SAFE.
Many people – even those who are experienced airplane travelers – can feel nervous about flying by helicopter. This is understandable; it is common to feel uneasy when experiencing new sensations. But you should rest assured that experts will control your journey carefully. You couldn’t be in safer hands throughout your flight, as our pilots are highly experienced in flying all kinds of major aircraft and have thousands of hours of experience in making this kind of journey. What’s more, it’s possible to charter helicopters with two pilots and two engines onboard, for ultimate security and peace of mind as you soar through the skies.
- MISCONCEPTION: HELICOPTER TRAVEL IS ONLY FOR VIPS.
Only the rich and famous travel by helicopter, right? Wrong. We believe it’s something that everyone should be able to experience at least once. Many of our clients report that their helicopter adventure makes their holiday complete, whether they have flown to discover a new island along the Aegean sea. There’s no exclusive club when it comes to helicopter charter – all you need is the confidence to try it once and you will quickly become a regular flier.
- MISCONCEPTION: HELICOPTER TRAVEL IS INFLEXIBLE.

Whether landing at a designated heliport or on a luxury superyacht, our flights are designed to be as convenient as possible.
The vertical flight capability of helicopters may be their greatest advantage over airplanes. Not needing a runway makes is possible to land in secluded, remote locations, mountaintops, backyards, parking lots, even yachts.
