It is located 2 miles south of Corfu and half a mile north of Pontikonisi. The approach and landing, in a northeastern direction, offers passengers a spectacular aerial view of Pontikonisi and the Vlajerna Monastery as well as the Kanoni hills, from which the runway is just hundreds of meters away.
