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.
Useful Websites to arrange your flights:
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.
Book your transfer with us
Easy steps to organize your transfer from Corfu to Paxos and vice versa with us
You can contact our representative in Corfu and inform them about your flight details, at least 4 weeks before your arrival, so that seats on the boat 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 with Paxos Thalassa Travel, because they will forward us all your details. They will take care of your transfer in and from Corfu. That means:
a. Being met by our representative at Corfu airport
b. Taxi or minibus to the new port (approx.. 10min.) where you will be met again
c. Hydrofoil or Passenger boat tickets, to Gaios, Paxos (approx 1 hour or 1 1/2 hour with passenger boat journey) or,
d. Sea taxi from Corfu to Paxos. Sea Taxi is recommended if your flight to Corfu is late in the evening and you do not want to stay overnight in Corfu*. Depending on the day you book and the available space in the port that period, you can reach by sea taxi Gaios, Lakka and Loggos.
Make it on your own way!
You can make your own way if you prefer but if you do, we strongly advise you booking your hydrofoil tickets in advance and be prepared for a long wait for a taxi in Paxos (unless you book in advance).
If you are making your own way and have not booked our transfer, there are several possible options to get on Paxos.
On arriving at Corfu airport just go out to the taxi rank outside arrivals & take a taxifrom there.
There are usually several taxis available (travel time 8-15mins)
Central Corfu taxi number: 0030 26610 33811
If you are going to Paxos the same day you should ask the taxi driver to take you to Sette Venti Caffe at the new port. This is where all hydrofoils, boats & ferries depart from (from the “rear/sea” side of the café).
At Sette Venti Caffe, there is a left luggage store there where you can put your bags in & wander into Corfu town if you have time.
