FOMO 2018 CONFERENCE: Crete 17.Sept. – 21.Sept. 2018 // SUMMER SCHOOL 10.Sept. - 14.Sept. 2018

Travel Information

NOTE: The conference and the summer school are in different places. The conference is much closer to Chania Airport (CHQ), whereas the summer school is much closer to Heraklion Airport (HER). There is a bus from Heraklion to Chania, which takes about 2 1/2h.

To Crete by plane

There are two main carriers to Crete from Athens: Aegean Air and Olympic Airlines. In the summer there are also a number of international flights to Heraklion.

For the summer school, you should travel to Heraklion airport, from where we will provide one or two busses from the Heraklion airport to the summer school and later on to the conference. There is also a regular bus service.

For the conference, Chania airport is most convenient. We will provide one or two busses from there to the conference center. The departure times of the busses will be announced later. If you do not find convenient tickets anymore, you will have to fly to Heraklion. However, once an hour there is also a rather convenient regular bus, which departs from the central bus station (10 min from the airport).

Please send your travel details to fomo2010atmatterwaveoptics.eu, so that we can accommodate the maximum number of people.

To Crete by boat

There are ferries between Athens (Piraeus) and Heraklion and Chania: Minoan, Super fast and ANEK. Online booking of tickets is possible directly or via all ferries.

Around Crete

Transport to and from the airport is available. Please inform fomo2014atmatterwaveoptics.eu of your arrival times.

If you would like to spend some more time to travel around Crete, you can either take the buses, or rent a car. If you mention that you attend FOMO, you will get a 10% discount here (prices from 120EU for one week).

In Crete

Closer to the start of the conference we will post here the bus schedule to and from the airport as well as some useful tips about traveling on Crete.
