Trains to Corfu Ioannis Kapodistrias International Airport
Unusually amongst international airports, Corfu airport doesn’t have any rail connections. The mainland of Greece is packed with railways, a total of 2,500 miles or so to explore in all, but unless you’re a railway fan you’ll probably be heading for Corfu airport on holiday, not to spot trains! As it is, because the journey into Corfu town centre is less than two miles long it is easy and convenient to hop on a bus or grab a cab. It’s safe to say that, the same as any major city, once you’ve got yourself to Corfu town centre you’ll find all sorts of public and private transport options to take you around the island.
Buses to Corfu Ioannis Kapodistrias Airport
Local buses stop outside the airport, and it only takes ten minutes or so to get to the town centre. They’re regular, friendly, cheap and direct. If you’re booking a package holiday or you’ve pre-booked your hotel, you’ll probably have a coach or bus laid on. But this airport is so close to town that, if you’re an adventurous type and don’t mind lugging your backpack just a couple of miles, you can always walk it. In the last few years, as well as standard flights, Corfu Ioannis Kapodistrias Airport also handles the hydroplanes that connect Corfu to Ioannina town, Epirus, and Paxi Island.
