Islands that have less than 5000 residents are already subsidized and you can travel for half price but maybe some more islands can start benefiting from this decision.
The article is from https://www.naftemporiki.g

Shades of a looming election season tentatively emerged in Greece over the past few days, with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras announcing a transport subsidy for permanent residents and SMEs in 49 islands, hours after saying his government will also suspend the harmonization of VAT rates on five islands bearing the brunt of a refugee/migrant crisis.

Tsipras, a day after agreeing to a request by Berlin that Athens take back third country asylum seekers that first entered the EU via Greece and then clandestinely made their way to Germany, again took to Twitter to announce the measure, in a post that even included a video.

The price tag for the measure – set to begin on July 1, 2018 – totals 60 million euros in 2018, with Greek taxpayers to subsidize eligible island families to the tune of 500 to 1,000 euros per year – assuming the measure is extended in 2019. Physicians serving at state-run health care facilities and teachers will also be eligible for the ferry boat subsidy. For the rest of the article see: transport subsidy

Nice gesture from S.

I saw this message on a local Facebook page telling people about cheap flights from England to Skiathos. A nice gesture. Maybe I should start a new page with things like that? Watertaxi, flights etc. Thank you S from Skiathos.

There is this website that you can look at too. https://www.skyscanner.net/
