The airport of Chania (CHQ) is named after Ioannis Daskalogiannis who was a Cretan shipowner and freedom fighter of the 18th century. He was the leader of the failed uprising against the Turkish occupation in 1770.
According to the number of passengers, the airport of Chania is the second biggest of the 3 airports in Crete. It is located on the Akrotiri peninsula and there it is less affected by bad weather than the airport of Heraklion is. In the case of storms, it may therefore happen that flights will be redirected from Heraklion to Chania.
