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 Istro Kalo Chorio as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Istron is just 10 km from the pluralistic town of Agios Nikolaos in the Lasithi region of east Crete. You will find this village as you pass along the main national road towards Ierapetra. The lower coastal part of this lovely area is known as Istron or Istro and the upper village is known as Kalo Horio.
In Istro you will find three beautiful beaches in three separate sheltered bays next to each other. The first one Karovostasi is to the northwest of the village. It is the most isolated and quiet one, with sand and rocks and clear crystalline waters. Beside Karovostasi is Agios Panteleimonas beach, which owes its name to a small white church next to it. Both these beaches are organized with umbrellas and sunbeds. The last one, on the northeast side, is Voulisma beach. A very long beach, one of the most beautiful in Crete, with shallow crystal-clear blue waters and fine white sand, making it ideal for families with children. This is the most well-organized beach with sunbeds, umbrellas showers and a small mini bar at the beginning of the path leading to the beach, which offers you a wonderful view.
The upper village Kalo Horio, also spelt as Kalo Chorio, is a traditional picturesque village. Kalo Horio in Greek means Good Village and here you will definitely take a taste of true Cretan hospitality. The village has a population of around 900. It is also a working village, so is not overly developed for tourists, meaning you will have an experience like no other in this beautiful area. If you fancy exploring the history of the area, Kalo Chorio has several interesting ancient archaeological sites, dating back to 3000 BC. Among them are Priniatikos Pyrgos, Vrokastro, and Vasiliki. Many houses and a paved courtyard can be found here which dates back to 2500 BC. Kalo Chorio is located only hours’ drive away from Heraklion. This means not only is it ideally located for those flying into Heraklion airport, but perfect if you’d like to explore one of the most fascinating and lively cities on the island.
