Heraklion Airport Guide to Heraklion International Airport Nikos Kazantzakis - HER

Bus from Heraklion Airport to city centre

In order to get to Heraklion downtown, you can use the extensive and efficient bus network that connects the major cities of the island. 

To do so, you’ll need to take any of the blue buses since they are the local buses (do not take the green ones, they are regionals and they effectuate long trips!). 

To reach the city centre, you can take either KTEA bus lines 5, 6, 8, 10, 11, 12, 15, 17, 19 or 31, since they follow the same route to Heraklion’s downtown. 

Some of this bus lines can take you to Bus Station A (which is located in the old town) or in Bus Station B (at the west of the old town).
