Heraklion Airport Facilities

FInd out what Heraklion Airport can offer

Baggage Check Service at Heraklion

If you’re looking to check your baggage for a few hours, the baggage check kiosk is located in the parking lot. A few Euro per bag will hold it for you in a secure area. This facility is presently open 24 hours a day, but if you’re planning on retrieving your luggage at an off hour, make sure this is true at the time you’re using the service. After midnight, bags are charged for another day. It will make last-minute sightseeing in Heraklion much more pleasant if you can do it without your bags. With the city itself only twenty minutes and half a Euro away, this sure beats sitting at the airport if your tour group drops you off early.
