Between May and September numerous charter flights connect Zakynthos with northern Europe and the UK
Levante ferries (www.levanteferries.com) runs between three and five ferries daily, depending on the season, between Zakynthos Town and Kyllini in the Peloponnese (€9.10, one hour). Occasional international ferries call in on the way to/from Igoumenitsa (on the mainland), Sami (Kefallonia), and Bari and Brindisi (Italy).
From the isolated northern port of Agios Nikolaos, ferries sail to Pesada in southern Kefallonia twice daily from mid-May to October (€8, 1½ hours); sells tickets. Neither port has good bus connections, however, so most travellers find it easier and cheaper to cross to mainland Kyllini from Zakynthos Town and catch another ferry from there to Kefallonia
The KTEL Bus Station is on the hillside bypass in Zakynthos Town, 500m up from the waterfront and 15 minutes’ walk southwest of Plateia Solomou.
