I don’t think that the maintenance staff could be doing their job properly, because on the flight home all the toilets on the plane broke down! – Felix
CFU Airport Overview
To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Corfu International Airport Ioannis Kapodistria at Kerkyra.
What to Expect
Corfu Airport (code: CFU) consists of a small, single terminal with a seasonal restaurant, bars, a couple of retail outfits, and duty free shop. The airport has a reputation for large crowds and line-ups during the busy summer months. The airport is currently (July 2019) undergoing an expansion of the terminal which could help with overcrowding. WiFi is available, though outlets to charge your mobile devices may be hard to find. Additional comfort may be found through fee-based access to the airport’s first class lounge. See our Airport Lounges section for locations and rates.
Where to Sleep
A review (July 2019) mentioned that seating is currently limited as the airport is under construction. The reviewer successfully slept on the floor with a travel mat and report that he had no problem with security. For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the guide below or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.
Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all services and times listed below are subject to change. Some services and facilities may remain closed or operate with reduced hours. Airport tips and suggestions in this guide and elsewhere on the site were written before March 2020 and may no longer be valid. If you are planning to sleep in the public area of the terminal overnight, have a back-up plan! We’ve heard from a few travellers at other airports and they were not permitted to stay overnight. We’re not sure if that will apply to this airport, until a reader lets us know the current situation. If you have some time to spare please write a review, send a tip or share photos to help future travellers.
