Zante Airport Problems

  • Quite often airlines will only open 1 check-in desk, thus creating large queues. So be careful and it is recommended getting to the airport slightly earlier than the traditional 2 hours.
  • Be careful with baggage. This goes with any destination. But if you get to the airport and you’re over your weight by 1Kg, you will be charged by the airline.
  • There are a lack of seat everywhere in the airport. So you may have to stand, be prepared.
  • Smoking as you can understand is permitted, so smoke before you enter the airport.
  • Car parking is a slight problem at the airport, Zante is a small island so don’t expect much parking here. We’d advise getting either a taxi to the airport or one of the local buses.
