information about the Corfu Airport Ioannis Kapodistrias International (CFU)

corfu-airportCorfu Airport is about three kilometres south of Corfu town on Route 25 and officially called Ioannis Kapodistrias International (CFU).

It is clean and modern but a single terminal building serves both international and domestic flights but it’s notorious for long delays.

Outside seating installed beneath a sun canopy has helped but passengers report flight-time bottlenecks especially on Monday and Friday, with long queues and just two luggage carousels.

Flights from Athens

Along with package charter flights, there are three flights daily to Athens and flights to Thessaloniki on Monday, Thursday and Saturday. Flights to either city takes about 50 minutes.

Flights from the UK

Budget airline Ryanair has new flights to Corfu from Stansted, Manchester, East Midlands, Leeds Bradford, Glasgow and Edinburgh, while rivals Easyjet now fly from Gatwick, Luton, Bristol and Manchester. For information on flights call the airport on 30 26610 89600.

Facilities at the airport

Facilities include a bank and ATM, money exchange and a post office. There are telephones and toilets for the disabled. Once through to the departure lounge there is a reasonable amount of seating and a cafe and bar for drinks and snacks. An information desk is in the arrivals hall.


No public buses serve the airport itself, but buses #5 and #6 run along the main road, about 500 metres from the airport entrance, into Corfu Town, a journey of about 15 minutes. Regular buses pass throughout the day and many hotels have their own free minibus services.

Distance from Corfu town

For those travelling by car or taxi, Corfu town is three kilometres to the north on the route 25 Kerkira-Kanoni road. Taxis are readily available outside the terminal but agree a price before getting in. There is limited car parking just outside the airport terminal.
