Heraklion Airport to Rethymnon Buses.

Hi.

Flying into Heraklion on June 19th arriving at 2.00pm. Can anybody tell me if it is possible to catch a bus from the airport direct to Rethymnon? Reading the bus timetables online it seems that the buses leave from Heraklion city bus station and not the airport. Or does the Heraklion bus pass through the airport on the way?

Many thanks for any help.

Mark

No you would have to go to the busstation with the city Bus and than choose the Bus to Rethymno, which leaves every hour.

If backpacking from airport to the Bus station the City bus is OK, otherwise just take a taxi it's only about 10€ or so. The intercity bus has luggage space underneath.

Hi there

Any bus stopping at the airport with "IPAKLIO" on the front will pick up and terminate at the main bus station. Should be one along every 15 mins or so during the main part of the day. It's about a ten minute run to the station. The Rethymno buses depart from the same station, every hour or so.

To find the bus stop at the airport,exit the terminal main doors turn right, follow the road around to the left, and the buses pull in there.

When you're on your way back to the airport at the end of the trip, any bus departing the bus station in Iraklion heading for Hersonissos, Stalis, Malia or Agios Nikolaos will call by the airport.
