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 Almyrida as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Almyrida is a lovely fishing village and seaside resort to the east of Souda Bay. It is found in the Apokoronas area of Crete which is famous for its outstanding beauty and it is located 25 km east of the town of Chania. The village is full of olive and orange trees and the area is so untouched and picturesque as it was when “Zorba the Greek” was filmed. In 1977 the area was declared as a region of infinite beauty.
Almyrida has two nice sandy beaches with shallow waters which make them ideal for families with small children, although sometimes it gets really wavy. Between the two beaches, there is a small rocky peninsula with a small idyllic white chapel. The peninsula is well organized with beach bars and popular for its water sports. The seaside road is full of restaurants and taverns famous for its fresh fish and delicious traditional Cretan food. The large sandy bay of Almyrida is awarded a “blue flag” for its beach. The untouched countryside around Almyrida is ideal for hiking and evening walks. East of the seaside resort is the idyllic village of Plaka, famous for its healthy climate and the Cretan hospitality of the locals. The several sea caves of the east coasts till Drapanos Cape create an impressive natural phenomenon. Plaka is famous for its labyrinth narrow streets and the old houses, making it unique for a walk during the evenings. Here you will find tranquillity and peacefulness and enjoy a traditional Greek coffee with the locals. Opposite Almyrida is the islet of Karga, which you can visit for a day trip or go for fishing with local small fishing boats. The islet is also the natural home of many birds which you can admire by the close.
In the last few years, visitors have become so charmed by Apokoronas area that they keep coming back every year. Some of them, especially from Northern Europe, even buy houses in the area as they are eternally in love with the place. Although the village is starting to get more tourists every year, it has still retained that charm of a little fishing village and the locals still rely on the land and sea for their main income. It is a nature lover’s paradise, a place of serenity and calmness away from massive tourism.
