Olympic Airways and Aegean Airlines. It is best to book your flight directly to Heraklion (Iraklion), Crete. Alternatively, you can fly directly to Heraklion from many European cities by charter flights or regular flights with Lufthansa from Frankfurt, for example. Therefore, participants from overseas (USA, Canada) may fly directly to Heraklion through Germany or other European cities.
Additionally, one can use the ferry-boat connecting Heraklion with the harbor of Pireaus (Athens). Connection is offered by Minoan Lines or ANEK Lines and the overnight trip takes about 7 hours.
