Private Jet Terminals on the Ionian Islands

By Chris Boyle


Meander Handling

Corfu’s International airport—the only airport on the island—is located just a mile south of Corfu Town and offers passengers a spectacular aerial view over the Vlaherna Monastery and the hills of Kanoni and Pontikonisis as they land.

Meander Handling offers a bespoke jet charter service in Corfu as well as the islands of Kefalonia and Zakynthos. With a wide range of executive and VIP services, this family-run company prides itself on its high level of personalized service and complete confidentiality. It promises fast turnarounds with assistance in landing permits, ramp supervision and customs and immigration as well as passenger and crew limousine transfers. The Meander team are fluent in a number of European languages.


Based in Perveza on mainland Greece, Akiton Airport became connected to Lefkas island in 2002 when an undersea tunnel was built in response to tourism.

Just 20 minutes from Lefkas Town, the airport takes its name from the sandy peninsula of Aktios. The first private ground handling company to operate in the liberalized Greek market, Goldair Handling offers comprehensive handling services including assistance with flight planning, passenger and ramp handling, and executive transfers. As one of the leading handling companies in Greece, Goldair also operates in all other airports in the Ionian Islands.

Originally owned by Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, Olympic Handling is the flagship FBO in Greece and provides the ultimate in luxury in all airports in the Ionian Islands.

Olympic covers a wide spectrum of services including VIP passenger and ramp handling services, re-fueling, de-icing and aircraft cleaning. Each flight is tailored to suit the needs of the passengers. Zakynthos airport was built in 2008 near the home of the endangered loggerhead turtle. For this reason, aircraft are not permitted to land or depart at night, so the turtles are not disturbed laying their eggs.
