The island of Crete has two significant airports, Nikos Kazantzakis airport at Heraklion (Greek website here) and Daskalogiannis airport at Chania (Greek website here) that serve international and national flights. A third and smaller one is located at eastern side of Crete at Sitia. The island is also served by ferries mainly from Pireus-Athens with ferry companies such as Minoan Lines, ANEK Lines and SUPERFAST FERRIES.The transportation from Chania and Heraklion to Rethymno can be done either by taxi (book your transfer on line) or by bus which is more economic. There are two bus companies that serve the transportation to Rethymno the one located in Chania Bus Company Hania-Rethymno SA and the other in Heraklion Bus Company Heraklio-Lasithi SA.
