Flights to Zante – AKA Zakynthos
For some reason Zante is also known as Zakynthos… we have no idea why the two names. Flights to Zante land you directly at Zante airport, on the island itself so you don’t have to waste precious beach time faffing around with inter-island transfers. Where’s the airport? To the south of the island, only half a mile or so from the resort of Laganas. It is the fifth busiest airport in Greece so expect plenty of company on your flights to Zante… fantastic news if you’re there for a manic week or two of over-indulgence and twenty four hour a day partying. While Zante is a delightful island and very pretty, it can get terrifically busy. But it depends which resort you stay in. The town of Laganas is the hub of most of the island’s frantic nightlife, packed solid with clubs, pubs, bars and tavernas. Argassi, in contrast, is significantly more chilled.
Zante Flights – Island of songs
The Greeks call Zante ‘The island of songs’ and the locals love to sing. Take flights to Zante and immerse yourself in local musical culture. Every restaurant seems to have its own group of melodious and enthusiastic singers – usually burly Greek blokes. Take your guitar if you’re into jamming, and learn some cool and not so cool Greek riffs. If flights to Zante wouldn’t be complete without plenty of opportunity to shop yourself silly, you’ll be glad to hear that Zakynthos town has good shopping. Everything from souvenirs to clothes, beach stuff and intricate, beautiful locally made icons.
Flights to Zante – Smart arrivals and departures areas
Since 2005 Zante airport has added smart new arrivals and departures areas which are a great improvement. Formerly tatty and clogged, flights to Zante now land at an efficient, spacious airport with impressively fast baggage handling. Zante is home to some very rare beasts – Caretta turtles – which are endangered and threatened. While Zante has miles and miles of gorgeous beaches some are reserved for the turtles, so watch out for the signs. Bear in mind that because Caretta turtles don’t like loud noises at night you can’t get night flights to Zante. Fair enough.
