British Airways has announced new nonstop service to two Greek destinations, and an increase in flights to existing destinations.
New, nonstop service between its global hub at London’s Heathrow Airport will be added to Hania on the island of Crete and the southern Peloponnese city of Kalamata, allowing passengers to bypass Athens all together and fly directly to their destinations.
Kalamata will be connected twice a week on Thursdays and Saturdays between April 30 and September 24.
Hania will be connected twice a week, as well, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
The airline also announced that it is increasing its nonstop service to Santorini from three to four flights, weekly.
British Airways offers year-round service to Athens and existing seasonal service to numerous Greek destinations, including Kos, Mykonos, Heraklion and Thessaloniki.
Neil Cottrell, British Airways’ head of network planning, said: “We’re delighted to be offering our customers more choices to popular holiday hot-spots.
“With so many new routes from London, our customers will have greater choice with even more value-for-money holidays to choose from, whether it’s a family break or a short weekend trip away.
“We know these new holiday routes are going to prove incredibly popular after increasing our number of flights to Santorini earlier this year and we are pleased we can give our customers an even greater choice of places to get away from it all.”
