Travel to the island of Crete

There are three international airports: Heraklion airport, Akrotiri airport close to Chania and Sitia airport. For international flights you will usually have to fly via Athens, except for charter flights or a few companies that fly directly to Crete. Another way to travel from Athens is by ferry from Pireas, the port of Athens.

Airplane

There are daily flights to Crete from all major cities in Greece and from many European cities as well. The closest airport to the conference site is the Heraklion international airport, 23 km from the Aldemar Royal Knossos Village and 5 km from the city of Iraklio, the largest city in Crete. International delegates may need to fly through Athens, which is serviced by all major airlines. Flights from Athens to Heraklion are approximately 50-60 minutes. Flights from London to Heraklion are 3 hours 45 minutes

Boat

It is also possible to travel to Crete by ferry from Pireas, the port of Athens. The trip takes approximately 9 hours on standard ferries and 6 hours on the high-speed Knossos Palace and Festos Palace (of the Minoan Lines fleet). An overnight ferry from Pireas, Athens will arrive in Iraklio, Crete between 5:00 and 6:30 in the morning (departing approximately 19:00).
Each ship offers very good standards of accommodation in "Luxury", "First" and "Second" class cabins, most with private toilet and shower. Every ship also offers a "deck" class offering aircraft type seats.
