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 Zakynthos – Zante Airport.

What to Expect

Zakynthos – Zante Airport has a small terminal that handles dozens of seasonal flights in the summer. During peak season, expect long, chaotic security procedures, but a recent change in ownership means some modernization is expected. Facilities include a landside cafe, four airside eateries, a duty-free shop, and free WiFi.

Where to Sleep

Due to very limited operating hours that change seasonally, overnight stays are not possible. For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer shuttle service for a fee. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.
