Flight Info

Destination Airport Heraklion

Flights To Heraklion

You’ve heard the myths about Crete. According to rumour, this Greek island was the birthplace of Zeus and also a frequent place for Hercules to show off. The strongman loaned his name to the capital city of Heraklion, and a trip here is all about adventures…oh, and maybe adult beverages.

Intrigued? We thought so. Book one of Wotif’s cheap flights to Heraklion today, sneak in some time at the gym and follow in Hercules’ footsteps tomorrow.

Getting Around Heraklion

Thump about the city aboard several bus lines. There is really one for just about everything, although take note that the schedules can vary by season. You can also cruise around in a taxi or, if you really want to burn rubber, snag one of Wotif’s car hire deals.

When You Land…

Heraklion flights landing in the morning? Watch the sun hit the water at Koules Fortress, a 16th-century stronghold overlooking the harbour walls.

If your plane lands during the afternoon, drop your bags at one of Wotif’s hotels in Heraklion and get yourself to the Archaeological Museum. Did you know Crete’s history dates way back to the Minoans? We didn’t, either.

Has the sky gone dark? We can’t believe we’re about to say this, but nighttime is the perfect time to get your Greek on (we’re sorry)—so try some tsikoudia. This clear liquor is available at most restaurants and while it’s quite agreeable, it can also make you feel like you can take on a hydra. Drink responsibly!

Live Like a Local

You can’t wander the Greek isles without taking in some of their myths. Psychro Cave, located about an hour’s drive east of Heraklion, is reportedly where Zeus, king of the gods, was born. We can’t verify that ourselves, but please let us know if you gain any lightning-hurling abilities while you’re there.

After your mythical encounter, go back to Heraklion and knock back some Cretan wine. You can thank us later.

Flights to Heraklion don’t need to leave your wallet feeling like it’s just clashed with some Titans. Book with Wotif and save your drachmas for the fun stuff. And hey, while you’re in Greece, why not spend some time in the birthplace of democracy itself? Our Athens packages are pretty darn exciting, even though Athens itself is only an hour’s flight away. Mix and match airfares and accommodation and craft a getaway for the ages.

What are the cheapest days to fly?

Here’s an insider tip: Sunday is typically the cheapest day to fly! Looking at flight demand on Wotif in 2019, we found that flights departing on a Sunday generally had the lowest average price, closely followed by flights on a Monday. You might want to think twice about flying on a Saturday too; generally, our data showed that it had the highest average ticket price.

What is the best day to buy a plane ticket?

Guess what? Boring old Wednesday really is the best day to score the cheapest plane tickets. Looking at flight demand on Wotif in 2019, we found that flights purchased on a Wednesday had the lowest airfares on average. Booking your plane ticket on a Sunday also seems to score pretty good deals. However, airfares purchased on a Saturday generally have a higher than average ticket value, so you might want to prepare your budget if you’re booking on a weekend.

What is the cheapest month to fly?

When comparing airfares booked through Wotif in 2019, our data shows October is one of the cheapest months to fly. On the other hand, the December holiday period can be one of the most expensive times to travel, with the highest average ticket price, so it’s best to get in early during peak periods.

How far in advance can you book a flight?

Trying to figure out how early you should book your flight? It’s possible to start comparing international airfares on Wotif up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to Wotif’s 2019 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest airfares appearing 1-3 weeks prior to travel.

How can I save money on flights?

Looking for clever ways to save on your next trip? Try mixing and matching airlines and fare types. Our data tells us, travellers who booked flights on Wotif in 2019 saved close to 55% off their airfare, when their return flights consisted of two different airlines or fare types.
