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.

Moreover, Elounda is in a convenient location thus not completely isolated. The town lies on the edge of the scenic lake of Korfos Bay and overlooks the Spinalonga peninsula. Spinalonga is infamous for being the last operating leper settlement on the European continent. Initially, Spinalonga was attached to mainland Crete but during Venetian occupation was converted into an island and fortified for defence purposes.
The fortress is defended by 40 cannons that date back to the 15th century. The island was originally converted into a leper colony back in the 19th century and hosted its last residents in 1957. To this day the island remains uninhabited and is considered a place of great historical interest. It is also one of the most popular attractions in the area. The island is frequently serviced by small boats which makes it an ideal day trip for visitors.
In the centre of Elounda, one can find a picturesque fishing port. Around the waterfront, there are several bars and restaurants. Also, north of the port lies the nearest beach to the town, where visitors can take some time off from sightseeing. Expect to meet some crowds whilst there.
