Flights to Athens are operated by all major airlines. The prices differ al lot, depending from where you start. If you fly from London, you might get a flight to Athens for about 100 Euros, but it will be more, if you come from the United States.
From Athens you can take a flight to Paros
From the UK there are quite some flights to Mykonos (Easy Jet and many others). It can be much faster and easier to fly to Mykonos and take a ferry boat from there.
Or you go by ferry boat from Piraeus. The trip by boat will take about 4 hours.
From the airport to the harbor
You have to plan enough time for the drive to the harbor of Piraeus and for the check-in on the boat (start from the airport at least 2 hours before the boat is leaving). A Taxi will be 50 Euros to the harbor and 35 Euros to the center of Athens. Bus and Metro are much cheaper.
A stay in Athens on your trip is a nice opportunity to see the old town (Plaka) or the Acropolis and many museums. To do this, you should take at least one whole day and plan one night in Athens.

Hotels in Piraeus
If you want to take an early ferry boat, it is better to stay in Piraeus. These hotels are just a walk from the ferry boat.
