Fastest route, the usual traffic
There are direct flights from the Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos (ATH) to the airport in Chania. The Athens airport is about 30 minutes from the city center and can be easily reached by taxi, private transfer, bus or metro. It is also possible to fly from Thessaloniki to Chania, although direct options are not available as these flights include a stop in Athens. A number of locations in Europe and the UK also offer direct flights to Chania. London, Helsinki and Brussels are a few of the cities that fly directly to Chania. Chania's Old Town is a 20-minute drive from the airport and can be reached by taxi, private transfer, rental car or bus, but note that the bus will be the slowest option.
