Crete has two international airports Heraklion and Chania (and in the near future Sitia in Eastern Crete will also start handling International traffic).
Most people flying to Eastern Crete fly to Heraklion Airport as it is the closest and most convenient. However it is always worth checking the prices for Chania airport as well. Since the main road has been built it will only take you about one and a half hours to get from Chania airport to the Heraklion area by hire car. Generally though there are more flights to Heraklion and this means that it is normally cheaper to fly there than it is to Chania. Also there is an airport in Sitia that has daily year round flights to and from Athens. In the future it is planned that it will also start handling charter flights from international airports.
Flight companies currently flying to Crete include Thomas Cook, Thomson, Easyjet, Ryanair, Monarch, Olympic Airways and Aegean Airways.
