How to reach the island of Kalymnos

Until August 2006 Kalymnos was only accessible by boat, but since that date the island has its own airport with domestic flights to Athens. This given the island has still retained its own identity. One can also take the ferry to Kalymnos from the island of Kos (the crossing takes about 45 minutes). Another way is the daily ferry from Athens (port of Pireaus trip) to Kalymnos (14 hours). Pothia (the capital of Kalymnos) has also connections with several other islands, amongst which are Leros, Pserimos, Nisyros, Astipalaia, Rhodes, and even a day trip to Bodrum Turkey is possible. When I was on Samos there was also a ferry that went from there to the islands of Agathonissi, Patmos and Leros and the final destination Kalymnos.
