Heraklion Airport

TransferPlan will transfer you from Heraklion airport to Koutsouras 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.

Koutsouras Crete

Koutsouras

TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Koutsouras as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Koutsouras is a picturesque village in Lasithi regional unit, 22 kilometres east of Ierapetra at the road heading for Makri Gialos. This small village was established in the 19th century by sheep farmers who lived in a mountain village named Stavrohori.

Koutsouras economy is not based on tourism. The locals live mostly from agriculture. That means that you will find a few small hotels and a couple of taverns. This is a true Cretan village and the locals will call you by your first name. In the area, there are many small pebble beaches. The main beach is located west of the village, in front of an old settlement, is well organized and full of tamarisk trees which will provide you with their shadow during summertime. In general, Koutsouras always has a few tourists, but if you want an even more isolated beach, a good solution is a small beach with pebbles next to the harbour of the village, about 2km on the west. 1km east of Koutsouras there is a small beach named Koutsourelis, with nice sand, making it ideal for families with children.

If you get in Koutsouras you must explore the surrounding area, an astonishing landscape of eastern Crete. The southern hills of Thripti are covered by thick pine forest, an oasis in the dry landscape of Lasithi. If you visit the park of Apiganias, west of the village, you will have a taste of this old magnificent forest. Over Koutsouras is located the traditional settlement of Tsikalaria with the pirate path passing through, a historic remnant of the Byzantine years which they say was used by locals to find shelter when pirates were attacking.

Koutsouras is a small village perfect for those who are seeking to relax on their holidays away from mass tourism. Here you will not find resorts, beach bars and huge hotels, but the locals will smile at you and will give you a taste of true Cretan hospitality.
