Flights to Heraklion
Thessaloniki International Airport
The Thessaloniki International Airport is only 15 kilometers from downtown Thessaloniki, and depending on where you travel from, you can usually reach the airport in around 30 minutes. The short distance from the airport to downtown is important when looking at cheap flights from Thessaloniki because this helps you determine what time you need to leave. Nearly 30 airlines service the airport, including Wizz Air, EasyJet, and Air Berlin. Finding a flight might be hard because some of these airlines only operate on a seasonal basis. When you use Orbitz.com to book your flight, you can clearly see what flights are available on the days that you want to fly.
Easy Car Parking
When you arrive at the airport, look for either the East or West parking lot. Both lots are conveniently located near the terminal, and the lots have more than 1,400 parking spaces available, including some spaces for handicapped drivers. Because the lots never close, you can park quickly even if your flight leaves late in the day.
Getting to the Airport
When you don't have access to a car, you can take a taxi or coach to the airport. The coach bus follows line 78, and you can reach the airport from the station in around 45 minutes. There is a second bus, known as the night bus, that also goes to the airport. Your other option is a taxi, and the 20-minute ride from downtown might cost around 15 euros.
Because flights at the airport leave throughout the day and night, the airport restaurants stay open 24-hours a day. If you cannot handle a heavy meal, look for the gift shops and souvenir shops in the terminal. These shops provide cheap snacks and goodies that won't weigh so heavily on your stomach. Even though Orbitz.com cannot get you deals on airport restaurants, it can get you deals on cheap flights from Thessaloniki. Whenever you are ready to fly, Orbitz can get you a ticket.
