Heraklion International Airport

Hotels near Heraklion International Airport, Rethymno, Greece .

The Heraklion International Airport (HER) is located on the Greek island of Crete. It is the main airport for the island and is only 5km from Heraklion. It has shown statistically to be second to only Athens International Airport for use in the country. It also ranks 69th in Europe for traffic.

HER is named after the philosopher and Heraklion native Nikos Kazantzakis. The airport’s construction was completed in 1937 and much of the original architecture has been preserved.

Among the international airports of Europe, few have the high level of safety that HER offers. This is largely due to the national air force sharing the airport, and maintaining stringent security. The only down-side to this is that the use of cameras is forbidden within the airport, in order to retain the integrity of Greek national security. This prohibition is not always well-signed and unknowing tourists are sometimes waylaid by the numerous security staff after unwittingly breaching this law.
