The region's name comes from that of an ancient Greek tribe, the Magnetes, not from the metal, magnesium, which itself is also named after this tribe.
Volos airport (VOL IATA) is situated in the area of Nea Anchialos, about 30 km SW from the city, and operates only weekly charter flights during the summer, directly from Amsterdam and the UK. There are expansion projects of the airport underway, as well as a rail connection from Volos city to the airport, so as to be able to start some commercial routes as well. Usually there are buses that meet scheduled charter flights in VOL airport to transfer them to the city or Pelion.
By regional coach
Interurban coaches ("KTEL" buses) (KTEL Volou (site in Greek)) are by far the most convenient way to travel around Greece, as well as for intra-regional travelling. There is frequent bus service from Athens Liossion Station to Volos about 15 times a day (cost is about €20) (Some buses stops in Almyros and Nea Anchialos also), as well as from Thessaloniki bus terminal "Macedonia" to Volos about 10 times a day (about €12). Volos is also connected with daily direct routes to Patras, Ioannina, Larissa, Trikala, Karditsa and to many more places in continental Greece via Larissa.
Trains (OSE) connect Volos to other cities in Greece via Larissa. Travelling with ordinary trains can be cheaper, although a little bit slower, whereas choosing a fancy faster Intercity train will cost the same amount of money, or even more than a KTEL bus. Almyros and nearby villages use the Paleofarsalos train station, from where the main Athens - Thessaloniki train line passes.
You can take the bus from Volos Interurban Bus Terminal ("Yperastiko KTEL") (KTEL Volou). Details on buses, can be found online here
