Corfu Airport (CFU)
History, Facts and Overview
Although planes had flown around the skies of Corfu since the 1930s, it was not until 1962 that the island's airport was born, complete with a small building for passengers. Just ten years later and with passenger numbers on the up, Corfu Airport invested in a new, larger and more modern passenger terminal and facilities have been improved ever since.
Corfu International Airport Ioannis Kapodistrias (CFU) is named after Count Ioannis Antonios Kapodistrias, a famous Greek diplomat in the early 1980s. The airport is especially famous for its coastal location and runway, which extends out into the actual sea, being built on reclaimed land.
The airport features a single ATM cash machine and a bureau de change counter, as well as a small post office.
For business passengers, the Grecotel Corfu Imperialis Hotel is located within easy driving distance of the airport and offers its guests a fairly comprehensive menu of business-related facilities.
