How to get to Zante

  /  How to get to Zante

The island of Zakynthos can be reached by plane all year round from Athens airport and from Killini port (located 75km from Patras).


There are daily flights from Athens International (ATH) connecting to the newly built Zakynthos International Airport (ZTH). The flight takes 1hour and 10 minutes. There are also direct flights from most European countries. The island receives charter flights, scheduled flights and low cost carriers and therefore we advise you to contact your travel agent in order to find the best possible combination.


Should you like to rent a car from Athens, it is a three hour trip. Kilini port on the mainland of Greece is the main harbour connecting to Zakynthos. The journey takes 75 minutes and ferries run very frequently.

This being said, it can be a long and tiring trip and we would recommend alternatives. There are ferries connecting Kilini to Zakynthos port every day.
