TRAVELLING:
*Comprehensive information regarding flights to and from Crete:  http://www.cretetravel.com/travel_tips/flights-to-and-from-crete
*UK AIRPORTS TO HERAKLION: Cheap charter flights from Newcastle and other UK cities directly to Heraklion, the closest city which accommodates charter flights. Charter flights from UK are mostly on Tuesdays - some UK airports have flights twice or more per week.
Jet2 on Tuesdays - good option for those who want to attend just the full week Tango Holiday or the 3 days holidays with extra days to explore Sitia or Heraklion

Thomas Cook on Tuesdays - good option for those who want to attend just the full week Tango Holiday or the 3 days holidays with extra days to explore Sitia or Heraklion. NOTE: the arrival time to Heraklion is too late to catch the last bus for Sitia so you will need to stay at Heraklion for the first night and travel to Sitia the following morning
Easyjet from London only
Gatwick every day - really flexible option for any combination of Tango Holiday/Festival and sightseeing/non-tango holidays
Luton on Wednesdays - good option for those who want to attend the 3days Festival and would like to stay in Sitia or Herakion a little longer
NOTE: If you are planning to take the bus from Heraklion to Sitia make sure you do not arrive too late because the last bus leaves Heraklion around 19:00. If you arrive late you have the option of spending the night in a hotel next to Heraklion airport and take the bus to Sitia the following morning www.bookings.com
HERAKLION TO SITIA: it is 3 hours driving and you have the following options
1. Use the public bus - The stop is outside of the airport, there are number of services during the day (every 3 hours) and the coaches are comfortable and with air-conditioning. The fee is around €15 one way and you just buy it in the bus. Last bus to Sitia leaves from the Heraklion airport at 18:50. If you arrive late you have the option of spending the night in a hotel next to Heraklion airport and take the bus to Sitia the following morning www.bookings.com

** ALTERNATIVE WAYS to access Sitia are:
Fly to Athens any day of the week and then
1. either get a plane to Sitia with Astra or Aegean Airlines
2. or travel to Heraklion with a Minoan Lines Ferry overnight (or during the day). This is a very flexible option due to daily flights to Sitia (some days there are 2 flights). It gives you the possibility of visiting and exploring Athens before or after the Tango Holidays/Festival.
