Crete Heraklion Airport Mini Guide

Crete – Iraklion Airport, otherwise known as Nikos Kazantzakis Airport, was opened in 1971 and has been extended and renovated since. It is the second busiest airport in Greece.
Crete Heraklion Airport is incredibly busy, and everyone wants to get on their way to their resort as soon as possible. Many people pre-book a hire car from there and are soon at their resorts relaxing, but to get ahead of the queues at the rental desks send the main driver ahead to sort out the paperwork so you are then ready to take in the sights of the island which include the fabulous Palace of Knossos and the charming town of Chania.
