Zakynthos International Airport ZTH (also referred to as 'Zante' or 'Dionysos Solomos' Airport) is located in the Laganas area of Zakynthos Island (‘Zante’) in the Ionian Sea on the west Coast of Greece, and is situated close to the town of Kalamaki, and about 6km or 20 minutes from the town of Zakynthos.
With an estimated 55,000 passengers a year, the Airport is served by Olympic Airlines with frequent flights to Athens, as well as by other European low-cost airlines and seasonal charters.
NOTE: During the summer season - Thursdays & Sundays - more than two flight arrivals cause pandemonium at the check-in gates, with long lines at times reaching outside into the hot sun (the terminal itself has air conditioning).
