Transportation

Getting to Heraklion [HER]

By Air: The principal airport in Crete is Heraklion International Airport, “Nikos Kazantzakis” (airport code: HER). It is located about 5 km east of the city centre of Heraklion and is directly connected to Athens International Airport (airport code: ATH) with several daily domestic flights run by Olympic Air, Aegean Airlines, Ellinair and SkyExpress Airlines. The flight duration from/to Athens is about 45min. Mostly during the summer period, there are also other direct scheduled airline connections from major European cities as well as many charter flights from most European countries.

The website of Nikos Kazantzakis International Airport is: www.heraklion-airport.info

 

By Boat: It is also possible to arrive by boat from Piraeus (major port of Greece) to Heraklion as Minoan lines and ANEK lines provide daily ferry services from and towards Crete. In particular, at least two ferry boats sail daily to Heraklion from Piraeus. The boats sail in the evening (usually around 9-10 pm) and reach their destination early in the morning (around 5:30-6:00 am) after an 8-9 hour journey.
