Airports in Crete
The biggest Greek island is served by two airports: Heraklion (HER) is the main port to Crete and Chania (CHQ).
Heraklion Airport: Located on the northern coast of Crete, 5 km from the center of Heraklion. You can travel to your destination by bus or taxi. The ride from the airport to the Malia is around €45. Crete is a big island that is best explored by car. Especially if you want to get to all the stunning beaches. Compare prices on Skyscanner’s Car Rental.
Chania Airport: Located 14 km from Chania on the northeast of Crete, this airport serves seasonal flights, including Arkia. Unlike traveling from Heraklion Airport, if you travel from Chania Airport it’s better to plan your transfer in advance since there are fewer buses, taxis, and car rental companies.
