Τravel to and from Kefalonia

Kefalonia is situated off the west-coast of mainland Greece and can be reached by sea and by air.

There is an international airport on the island, which has daily flights from Athens and other major airports throughout Europe (charter flights). The new updated site of the airport is www.efl-airport.gr  where you can find useful information, as airlines, today’s arrivals and departures etc.

There are various ports in Italy (Bari, Ancona, Brindisi and Venice) that have connections to mainland Greece and Kefalonia directly (starting from May). In Greece, ferries to Kefalonia, depart from Killini, a port town in western Peloponnese and arrive in the port of Poros. Until 2016, routes from Patras to Sami were availiable. But up today, no information is released for 2017. Local ferries depart from the port of Astakos in mainland Greece, to Sami Kefalonia and Ithaca. During summer season (starting from May), the port of Fiscardo in northern Kefalonia receives ferries from Vassiliki Lefkas, while the port of Pessada in southern Kefalonia operates ferries to Shinari Zakynthos.
