Corfu Airport Transfers Options- How to get from Corfu airport to my hotel
1. Public Transportation- How to get from Corfu Airport to your hotel by bus
Public transportation is by far the cheapest way to get to your hotel, but often not the most comfortable. Corfu is a large island with a big number of resorts scattered around the coast - from the north to the south and from the west to the east. Here are some of the most popular resorts of Corfu: Acharavi, Agios Ioannis Peristeron, Agios Georgios South, Agios Georgios North Agios Gordis, Corfu Town, Barbati, Dassia, Gouvia, Kanoni, Kassiopi, Kavos, Kontokali, Messonghi, Moratika, Liapades Ipsos, Paleokastritsa, Pelekas, Roda, Sidari . Only few of these resorts are located close to the airport (e.g. Corfu Town or Kanoni are found within approximately 10-minute drive) while the majority of resorts are located quite far, and in some cases it can take more than 1-hour drive to get there from the airport. For example, the popular resort of Sidari is approximately 38 km north from Corfu airport while Kavos, in the south of the island, is approximately 45 km away.
Unfortunately, there are no buses directly connecting Corfu International Airport to the various resort areas (unless you are staying in Corfu Town) but at the airport you can take the Blue Line Bus No.15 to get to the KTEL Green bus station (just 5 minutes away), from where all Green Line Buses depart to any resort on the island. Once in Corfu airport, it is quite easy to find the Blue Line bus stop, as it is located right outside the main terminal exit. If you have difficulty finding it, then please follow the signs or ask any of the airport staff, who will be happy to help. The price of the bus ticket is 1,20 euros for adults, 0,90 euros for university students and 0,60 euros for children or school students (prices are subject to change). Tickets can be purchased from the airport vending machines or directly from the driver for an extra cost of 0,50 euros. Please note that the Blue Bus No.15 is only available once every hour, so waiting time can vary a lot and depends on your flight’s arrival time. For the latest information, including the latest bus timetable, please always check the official Corfu Blue Line line website: https://www.astikoktelkerkyras.gr
Once you arrive at the Ktel Green Bus Station, you will have to buy a second ticket for the Green Bus Line to your resort, which you can easily get from the KTEL offices on this location. The price, as well as the duration of the transfer, vary a lot depending on the location of your resort and its distance from the airport. You can see below some indicative prices below to get an idea. Please confirm all this information on the official Green Bus website a few days before your arrival: https://greenbuses.gr/
Corfu Airport-Barbati: Duration: approx. 50 minutes/Price: 2,20 euros

2.Corfu Airport Taxi Rank- How to get from Corfu Airport to your hotel by taxi
Taxis are considered an easier, faster and more comfortable way to get from Corfu airport to your hotel.

You will have to board the first taxi in line and the duration of the transfer depends on the location of your hotel. For example, if your accommodation is in Corfu Town, then it should take you only around 10 minutes to get there while for other resorts, such as Sidari on the north coast of the island for example, it can take you up to 1 hour to get there from the airport.
Are taxis expensive in Corfu? How much does a taxi from Corfu airport cost?
Please note that in Corfu there are not fixed taxi fares but prices depend on the distance between Corfu airport and your hotel, the time required for the transfer, as well as the time of the day that you travel (extra cost at nighttime between 12.00am - 05.00am). The minimum fare for any journey is as low as 3,60 euros and the exact cost of your transfer will be calculated with a taximeter based on the distance from Corfu airport to your hotel. Please remember to have cash with you as most taxis in Corfu accept only cash payment.
