Re: Construction of new international airport in Crete set to begin

Looking at the map It appears to be a fairly high altitude location & I suspect that the roads up there would have to be made wider & that more tourism would be diverted to the south coast which would then be equidistant to the over done north coast??

Re: Shipping unaccompanied luggage Anendyk / NEN

I am not sure about this, but I think what happens is you /someone you know has to put luggage abooard & then same at other end, I don't think the ticket booth will put on/collect goods. I have not been on NEN ferries so that may possibly be different ????

Re: Less visitors at Chania airport in 2018

I agree with you about Bryanair, they are also on the bottom of my choice. I notice they appear to still be flying to Hania even though their base there is closed.

Re: Ferry timetables ANENDYK changed again

Hi Erno, I see on the nenkritis.gr website there appear to be several more ferry routes than those on the forum's website page showing the NEN ferry timetable. They seem to have 2 boats operating & a route from Paleochora as well.

Re: Winter from Wednesday in Crete

Regarding the weather over this next weekend. Looking at the UK met office forecast they are showing a nasty little low pressure area with very tightly packed isobars moving North East from the Libyan sea between the Peloponese & Crete, it looks like it could give very strong winds across parts ...
