Heraklion Airport Nikos Kazantzakis information

Heraklion Airport is the main airport on Crete Island, Greece, and it is also known as the Nikos Kazantzakis International Airport (HER). The airport is named after the Greek philosopher and writer Nikos Kazantzakis who is a native of Heraklion. Located in the vicinity of the Nea Alikarnassos municipality, approximately 5km from Heraklion city, Heraklion Airport is Greece’s second busiest airport only after Athens International Airport.

It was opened for business in March of 1939 and is owned by the Greek Government.

This airport sees much activity as it serves the entire region of Heraklion, as well as Aghios Nikolaos, Elounda, Stalida, Malia, and Hersonissos. As of 2009 the total number of passengers served stood at 5,052,840 while the number of aircraft served was 44,842. To relieve the facility of some of its load plans are in the works to construct another airport at Kastelli Pediados.

It is worth noting that passengers are barred from making video recordings or taking photos of the airport’s runway as there is a Hellenic Air Force base operating at the facility. Compared to other international airports, Heraklion Airport is smaller, its custom facilities are quite basic, and its parking lot space is quite limited.
