From the airport, the aerial view of Pontikonisi, the Vlacherna Monastery, and the hills of Kanoni is truly spectacular. during the take-off or landing procedure.

Corfu airport has all the basic services. Inside you will find refreshment points, bars, restaurants, duty-free. There are ATMs for withdrawing cash in the local currency. The WIFI line is available throughout the hotel: you just have to connect through your device to the “Fraport-Free” network and register from the welcome page.

Those who prefer to rent a car directly at the airport (recommended), simply have to follow Route 25 which leads to the city center. The journey is quite short.

The car is the best solution to reach the center and, above all, to move around the island. We recommend using local rental agencies that offer really cheap prices (among these we recommend GoCar and Sunrise).


The taxi rank is located outside the airport, on the ARRIVALS side, Terminal A. The service operates 24/7. The journey to the center takes about 10 minutes and the cost is around €25 for a ride for up to 4 people. It is always recommended to check in advance the rate applied by the taxi.

The vehicles are easily identifiable by the writing on the vehicle.
