Heraklion airport is the largest and most important of the Crete airports. Heraklion airport is situated only 5km away from the city of Heraklion, so this Crete airport is the best choice if you are traveling to the city. To get from Heraklion airport to the city centre, you have two transfer options, bus or taxi. Taking a Heraklion airport taxi is the quickest but more expensive transfer option. The journey will take 10 minutes, and is charged at a flat rate of €16. Taking a bus is much cheaper, but also slower. Total journey time on the bus is 35 minutes, but it will cost only 2.00€. Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to Crete at the same price as a regular taxi. Click here to see the cost.
