It must be noted that Corfu airport was built before the advent of large-scale commercial tourism and is consequently inadequate for modern needs. Whilst the airport offers basic facilities, it is not unknown for departing passengers to have to queue outside come rain or shine due to the volume of people being processed through the check in desks. Arriving passengers may endure a long wait whilst baggage is retrieved from the aircraft and delivered to the terminal building. This problem is often exacerbated by several flights arriving within minutes of each other.


KTEL operate a coach service twice daily to and from Athens. The Athens departure point is coach station A in Kifissou Street. Ktel’s website is in Greek only and you now have to pay for timetable information.
