Olympic Airlines, Aegean Airlines,  serve Corfu directly with Athens, Sky Express with the Ionian Islands( Lefkada, Kefallinia, Zakynthos and Kithira) and Crete, and Astra airlines with Thessaloniki . Other major airlines offer connecting service from most European countries. During winter, it will be hard to find direct flights. Travelers must transfer planes in Athens and continue to Corfu International Airport.

Sightseeing in Corfu begins the moment the plane touches down at Corfu International Airport. The air strip is 2 miles across the Ionian from Pontikonisi Island, the hills of Kanoni, and Vlaherena Monastery. They lie amidst sweeping vistas of the island and the waterscape.

Corfu Airport is within driving distance of Corfu town. Obtain a rental car from a mainstream or local vendor. Travelers who do not want to be preoccupied with driving in Greece can take a taxi to the hotel. There is also a bus connection to Corfu town and the port. The bus stop is at the main entrance of the arrivals terminal and the schedule is posted there. You can also download the bus schedule and check for bus No19. Tickets are available on the bus. 

Alternatively, ferry boats depart from Italy (Venice, Bari and Brindisi direct and Ancona via Igoumenitsa) and mainland Greece (Igoumenitsa and Patras) harbours. This is a convenient option for visitors who want to drive around Europe or enjoy some sightseeing prior to their arrival Corfu. KTEL green bus services provide access to cities across Greece and include ferry boat transportation in many of their packages. Their motor coaches are spacious, comfortable, and air conditioned.

Considering the small size of the island, it is incredibly accesible. The method a traveler decides to select largely depends upon their pre-Corfu plans.
