How to get to Corfu

Corfu has an new, clean and modern international airport with regular flights to and from Europe, Athens, Thessaloniki and other cities in Greece. There are two type of flights that are available - Scheduled flights which are operated by Airline companies and can be booked direct with the Airline. To get to Corfu using scheduled flights, you can fly directly to Corfu or to Athens or Thessaloniki and then get an internal flight to Corfu. Several airlines fly from Athens to Corfu.  You can also fly to Italy then travel to Corfu by ferry.
The other type of flights (and the cheapest usually) to get are chartered. This is where a travel company uses their own planes and the aim of the exercise is to completely fill the plane. These flights are used by tour operators in conjunction with accommodation to form "package holidays". However, there are always seats on the planes available for "flight only" bookings. These seats are sold to ensure that the flights are completely full and can be extremely cheap. These seats are sold by flight agents. Once confirmed, the seats on the flight are yours. It is always advisable however to check-in early so that you can get your preferred seats. 

Ferries arrive at Corfu from Igoumenitsa and Patra. There are ferries plying the one and a half hour route between Corfu and Igoumenitsa every hour during the day. Coming from Patra, you can buy a domestic ticket on one of the international ferries going to Italy, because they stop in Corfu on the way. There are several ferry services between Booking Hotel Corfu and many Italian cities on the Adriatic coast, such as Ancona, Brindisi, Triest and Venice. The shortest route is from Brindisi taking approximately 8 hours, but the most comfortable way is by boat from Venice (24 hours) and Triest (27 hours). These are cities you can easily reach by train or car, but travelling from Venice by boat has also an extra advantage, that you can admire the San Marosquare. If you want to compare travel costs with the different possibilities, you have to take into consideration the toll costs on the highway in Italy. Travelling through Austria and Switzerland you require a Vignet. This is a special sticker you have to buy and place on your windscreen. You can also combine your trip flying to Venice and then by boat to Corfu.
