TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Chania airport as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Chania International Airport, "Daskalogiannis" is an international airport located near Souda Bay, 14 kilometres away from Chania Town. The airport owes its name to the Cretan rebel Ioannis Vlaxos, known as Daskalogiannis, who gave his life to free the Cretans from the Ottoman occupation.
Chania airport is not as busy as Heraklion airport but it still handles about 1.5 million passengers a year. Moreover, it is a gateway to western Crete for an increasing number of tourists. The airport is at its busiest during the summer months, when many local visitors and international tourists fly to the island to enjoy the sea, sun and wide variety of historical attractions present in many of the cities and towns in the area. Chania is itself often referred to as the most beautiful city in Greece, and most certainly one of the prettiest in the Mediterranean. Especially the old town of the city excels for its unique beauty. For this reason, it is the ideal starting point for those wishing to explore the island. In terms of business it is regarded as important, and therefore the airport sees a number of corporate clients as well. The airport connects the city with the Greek mainland and many other countries worldwide. A lot of charters fly from here all over the world. The airport has just been renovated and substantially enlarged so it is a true European small airport. Here you will not encounter any delays or wait excessive time for your luggage. You can find coffee shops and gift shops inside the airport and generally spent some quality time.

TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Heraklion town as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Heraklion boasts the title of the largest urban entity in Crete and is also the administrative capital of the island. Heraklion has an immense historical and cultural heritage, as in close proximity to the city visitors can find the Palace of Knossos, which has served as the centre of Minoan civilisation. Throughout the city, you can also find a number of constructions dating back to the Venetian occupation such as Koules Fortress in the old port.
Heraklion is home to some world class monuments and cultural landmarks. Among the most outstanding man-made structures is the Heraklion Fortress that contains the 'old town'. Originally built by Arab merchants and later on reinforced by Venetians, the Fortress included seven bastions, of which only the Martinego bastion survives the passing of time. Moreover, visitors will be delighted to find one of the gates to the city, named Chanioporta, which is ornate with the winged lion of Saint Marc. Visitors can also pay pilgrimage to the grave of one of Greece's most important writers and Nobel recipient, N. Kazantzakis. The sight that marks his resting place also offers some mesmerising views of the city.
Throughout the city, one can spot statues and monuments commemorating prolific figures that have been important for Greece's course through history and have contributed to Crete's immense cultural heritage. Some of the names include renaissance painter El Greco, Poet Vicenzo Kornaros and Politician Eleftherios Venizelos.
Moreover, the Archaeological museum should be on the top of every visitor's list; a splendid space that boasts a massive collection of ancient artefacts from all over the island and covers more than 5,500 years of history. Special emphasis is given to the spoils of Minoan civilisation, which has been one of the first to spring in the Southern European cost and was almost entirely wiped out by a volcanic eruption and a subsequent tsunami. The museum is home to the most important collection of surviving Minoan antiquities in the world and awaits its visitors to explore the mysteries of this extinguished civilisation.
Nowadays, Heraklion represents a beacon of Greek modernization and has been subjected to an extensive urban sprawl, that gives it a truly unique character. Despite the expansion of concrete residential blocs and the immense traffic, a short walk through the bustling streets and alleys will travel you through thousand years of history and will reveal to you the hip side of Greece with its rich coffee culture and culinary delights that can be found in every corner.
