No boats will be leaving for Skopelos and Alonissos in the middle of the summer season. The photo above this text speaks for itself. Skopelos picked a date one month from now. On the 19th of July there are no boats after 17.50 hours. Passengers who have a later flight are stuck on Skiathos till the next day.

The three mayors of Skiathos, Skopelos and are talking again with the ministry of transport and with all boat companies to find a solution for the problem. Passengers that come in on later flight cannot spend the night on Skiathos. They should be able to travel with a later boat and if that was leaving after 9 that was never a problem in the past. The situation that the Sporades finds itself in is not a new one and who will come with a definite solution? Below is the article in the greek newspaper; e-thessalia
