Heraklion Airport

Heraklion International Airport (HER)

Overview

Heraklion International Airport is among the busiest in Greece. Located 1.7 miles (2.8km) east of Crete's capital, the facility is well-run but can be unpleasantly hot and crowded in the peak summer season.

Flying into Heraklion International Airport is an exciting experience for passengers, as the runway is only a few metres from the shore. However, airport authorities do not allow pictures to be taken of the runway as the facility is jointly used by civil and military aircraft.

A new airport called Kastelli International is scheduled to operational by 2023, so Heraklion's future is limited.
