TransferPlan will transfer you from Heraklion airport to Kokkinos Pirgos as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. 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 Kokkinos Pirgos as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Kokkinos Pirgos is located 67km west of Heraklion and close to the town of Tymbaki. The village owes its name after a tower made of red clay, which once stood here next to Geropotamos river. The area has a warm climate and the locals deal with growing vegetables and fishing. You can watch the small fishing boat at the small picturesque harbour of the village.
At Kokkinos Pirgos you will not find large hotels and beach resorts as the village is unspoiled by massive tourism. But in general, you will find all the basic amenities for tourists. Small hotels, fish tavernas and coffee shops. The long beach in Kokkinos Pirgos is sandy and ideal for walking. As you walk to the east you find the beach of Kalamaki and further on is the Komos Beach. On the west of Kokkinos Pirgos is Agia Galini, but is harder to walk as large stones make their appearance.
Kokkinos Pirgos is the perfect place to stay if you want to explore the area of the Messara plain, the Ida Mountains with the Psiloritis and the Southern part of the municipality of Rethymnon. Definitely a quiet place ideal for relaxing and taking a taste of true Cretan life.
