How to get to Paxos

 

Paxos does not have an airport so most visitors fly to island of Corfu and then transfer by hydrofoil, sea taxi or ferry on Paxos . Corfu has only one airport, called 'Kerkyra' or 'Kapodistrias' with flight code CFU, located close to Corfu Town.

 

Between the months of April until late October you can fly direct to Corfu from most European air ports. The most popular charter flights to Corfu are Mondays and Fridays. Early morning departures are required to avoid missing the last hydrofoil. There is also a daily domestic service from Athens.

You may find there is a gap between transfers but facilities at the harbor are excellent, with a left luggage option and a comfortable café/bar.

Easy steps to organize your transfer from Corfu to Paxos and vice versa

1. You contact our representative in Corfu and you inform them about your flight details, at least 4 weeks before your arrival, so that boat seats can be confirmed. This is particularly important in high season (July/August) when demand is high. You must tell them that you have booked your accommodation in Paxos with Thalassa Travel, because they will forward us all your details. Then, they will take care of your transfer in Corfu. That means:
