The first and the last part of Corfu that you
Corfu airport is a new, clean and a modern airport. When you arrive you are
quickly through the customs check as you are coming from and to a country in
the European Union. Then it is through to collecting your baggage!! This can
be a long process, depending on how many other aircraft have landed around
the same time as you. Monday is the busiest day of the week and this is when
you may have to wait quite some time for your luggage. A long wait is not
always the case if you arrive at a quieter time, you can have your luggage
within about twenty minutes or so and be away to your waiting transport to
take you to your resort.
Returning to the airport, always a bit depressing after a lovely holiday on
Corfu, can be a bit of a battle checking in. The check in hall is not
really large enough for the amount of aircraft that depart at a similar
time, making the hall very crowded, again especially on Mondays, when one
aircraft after another departs to the various regional airports in the UK or
This again is not the case if you can plan your flight on a quieter day.
Once through to the departure lounge, there is a large amount of seating,
shops to buy those last minute souvenirs and reminders of Corfu, a cafe and
bar, serving drinks, coffee and snacks and all the normal facilities you
would expect to find at an airport. It becomes a little crowded at the
really busy times, but as one group boards their plane it makes room for
those coming through and through personal experience seems to work well even
on the busy days.
