Heraklion Airport Bus
The bus from Heraklion airport certainly isn’t the most comfortable choice, but it definitely is the most economic one. You will not find a bus station inside the airport grounds, which means you will have to walk a short distance to the nearest road where you will be able to board your bus.
If you choose to use the local transport, the bus station is located just outside the airport grounds, on the central road to your left (the central road is located straight ahead of you as soon as you exit the arrivals building of the airport). Buses arrive every 10 minutes and are headed from the airport to Heraklion KTEL terminal, which is located in a central spot inside the city of Heraklion. Bus schedules start daily at 06:00 a.m. and last until 23:00 p.m.
The estimated time of your route until you reach the center of Heraklion, is about 20 minutes.
Despite its tempting price, taking the bus from Heraklion airport of Crete is most certainly not the most comfortable choice of transportation. Due to the lack of a bus station for the city center inside the Heraklion airport, you will need to carry your luggage to the central ring road so you can board your bus. Furthermore, if you land past 21:15 p.m. you will not find an available bus.
