Ikaria is part of the Eastern Aegean Islands group that is located quite close to the coast of Turkey and includes Chios, Lesvos, Samos, and others. Ikaria Island is not one of the country's most famous or most visited—an ironically fortunate circumstance that makes this one of the most unspoiled of the Greek islands. In the mythological history of ancient Greece, Ikaria was named for Icarus, the son of Daedalus, who flew too close to the sun with his wax wings and fell into the sea here.

Jetway  is the premier private jet aircraft charter service in Greece, serving clients across the country and South Europe from our Athens  headquarters. Our private passenger jet charters — as well as private helicopter charter services — provide discerning travelers with a highly personalized experience. By taking advantage of the services we offer, you can avoid the hassle of commercial airlines.

The people of Ikaria Island are known for their health and longevity, and their island is one of the few "Blue Zones" of the world. These are geographic pockets where people are generally unusually healthy and it is not that unusual for someone to live past age 100; more than one-third of Ikarians live past the age of 90, the highest percentage in the world. Studies have shown a number of lifestyle factors contribute to this, including a strong sense of family and community, some physical activity every day, and a diet heavy on vegetables. Other Blue Zone pockets are Sardinia in Italy, the Okinawa Islands in Japan, the Nicoya Peninsula of Costa Rica, and the vegetarian Seventh-Day Adventists of Loma Linda in California. Another factor contributing to longevity on Ikaria is something you are apt to feel more than notice—native islanders are notoriously unconcerned about schedules or hurrying to get something done, and are very trusting. Unconcerned shopkeepers may well tell you to simply take what you want and leave some money behind. Shops may not be open in the mornings because the owner simply didn't get around to opening until later. This is true in restaurants as well, where speed of service is not the most important. So don't wait until you are ravenous to sit down for meal, as you will have a good amount of time to socialize before the food arrives. Remember that socializing with community is one of the factors contributing to health and longevity.
