Heraklion International Airport, "Nikos Kazantzakis" is the primary airport on the island of Crete and the country’s second busiest airport after Athens International Airport. It is located about 5 km east of the main city center of Heraklion, near the municipality of Nea Alikarnassos. It is a shared civil/military facility.
The airport took its name after the Cretan native and most famous Heraklion resident Nikos Kazantzakis, who left his mark in Greek history as a novelist and philosopher. Heraklion Airport is Crete's largest and busiest airport, also serving as a connection between Agios Nikolaos, Malia, Hersonissos, Stalida, Elounda and other resort towns. The airport has been operating since the late 30s and its annual number of passengers is approximately 5 million. The airport serves both domestic and international flights.
Heraklion Airport is operating in a renovated and modern space since 1971. The airport complex has been expanded in order to accommodate increased traffic and serve an ever-increasing flight network. Especially during peak season, the airport gets really busy, thus some sporadic delays are expected.
The proximity of the airport to the Heraklion town allows the visitor some spare time to explore or simply wind out and have a nice lunch or drink in the local eateries. Furthermore, around the airport, one can find some excellent hotels and resorts in case an overnight stay is required. The historical site of Knossos Palace and the Archaeological Museum are also located nearby and can be easily reached from the airport with our help. Navigating through the airport can be a daunting task, airport staff will be readily available to assist you.

TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Agios Nikolaos Port as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Agios Nikolaos Port is 65 kilometres east of Heraklion, located at the beautiful Mirabello Bay. The sea in Agios Nikolaos is splendid and the surrounding area of the city is noted for its sandy beaches and beautiful small coves. The landmark of the city is a small and deep lake, known as Voulismeni, where if you feel adventurous you can swim.
Agios Nikolaos port is a popular stop for ships from various cruise lines, such as Thomson, Louis, and Regent Seven Seas. The old harbour located more toward the centre of the town is used only by small fishing vessels and local fishermen. The port is unprotected to the North winds and sometimes it gets very windy. The islet Agioi Pantes which is opposite to the town is the only shelter from the winds. The biggest part of Agios Nikolaos is built on the remains of the ancient city of Lato. You can also visit the Archaeological Museum which is very interesting and study the ancient Minoan civilization of Crete. In the town, there is also a folk-art museum which is one of the most visited sites of Crete. If you have some more time you should definitely visit the island of Spinalonga which used to be a leper colony and now holds a small museum.
The city mainly lives on tourism and fishing, but despite the tourist growth, it has not lost its unique quality. Every summer the small harbour and the lake, surrounded by restaurants, cafes, shops and beach bars are full of tourists and locals, providing you with a perfect destination for your holidays.
The port of Agios Nikolaos connects the island with Athens, Greece’s capital and many Aegean islands like Santorini, Mykonos, Karpathos and Rhodes, which are uniquely beautiful.
