Heraklion International Airport is the largest and most important of the airports in Crete. Heraklion Airport is situated only 5 km away from the city of Heraklion, so the journey takes just 10 minutes in good traffic conditions.
To get from Heraklion Airport to the city centre, you have 3 transfer options; taxi, private transfer or bus. Taking a taxi or private transfer is the quickest option, as the service is door-to-door. The journey will take just 10 minutes and cost you approximately €19. Taking a bus is much cheaper, with tickets costing just €2. However, services can get quite crowded during the high season, so expect longer waiting times if you’re heading there during the summer.Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to Crete at the same price as a regular taxi.
