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 Lentas as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Lentas is a coastal village 75 km south of Heraklion, on the south coast of Crete. This seaside village is built on the site of the ancient city of Leven, in a small cove at the slopes of the Asterousia mountains. The name Lentas, which means lion, owes its name from the Cape which is to the west of the village and it has the shape of a lion. Due to its isolated location you won’t see many visitors here even in the summertime.
This small fishing village has no large hotels or resorts. Only some rooms to let and some tavernas by the wave. When in Lentas, you can see the ruins of the temple of Asclepius, dating to the 3rd century BC. The shrine and the healing springs were visited by visitors from all over the eastern Mediterranean. If you visit the place you will see remains of the temple like two broken marble columns, a statue base and parts of a mosaic from roman times. By the temple is a very beautiful small church. Lentas is full of small isolated beaches. One of them is Limanaki, meaning the small harbour in Greek, with sand and pebbles. The village beach is also a great place to swim. The beach is located in a naturally protected bay with the deep blue crystal-clear sea. Here you can find some sunbeds and umbrellas. Apart from the village beach in Lentas there is also the beautiful sandy beach Diskos on the other side of the lion mountain. Follow the western paved road from Lentas towards Dytikos or just walk the shorter path directly over the lion. Dytikos, as Matala, is also known as an old hippie colony, you can still swim naked and camp quite simple on the beach. Nude and wild camping are allowed here.
Beautiful beaches, amazing mountain scenery, quiet walks, nice rooms at the seaside, delicious food and extremely friendly people await you at the small village Lentas by the Libyan Sea.
