“This is the biggest launch of new routes at Gatwick we’ve had for several years and is brilliant news for families and holiday-makers wanting to get away from it all for that all-important break to relax in the sun,’ said BA head of commercial Gatwick Colm Lacy.

Cagliari will operate three times a week, Crete four times a week, Rhodes twice a week, Bodrum twice a week, and Dalaman four times a week.

Ryanair creates more links to Greece
Jan 16th, 2014 by elisa

Ryanair is opening two new bases in Greece, one in the capital, Athens, and the other in the city of Thessaloniki. 

The airline will start flights from London Stansted to Athens on 1st April and increase the frequency of its existing service from Stansted to Thessaloniki to daily. The move is part of a $280 million investment in Greece. Ryanair said it expects to carry over 1.2 million passengers from its base in Athens, and 1.6 million passengers a year from Thessaloniki.

Ryanair’s David O’Brien said the new routes would provide passengers with an alternative to Aegean/Olympic: “Only Ryanair, with its 175 new aircraft order, can deliver the capacity, new markets and low costs demanded by Greek consumers and visitors, and looks forward to working with Athens Airport to unlock the vast potential currently suppressed by high access air costs”.

From Athens Ryanair will fly to Milan and the Greek destinations of Chania, Paphos, Rhodes and Thessaloniki as well as to London.

From Thessaloniki it will fly to Athens, Pisa and Warsaw.

Tickets are now on sale.

Greece is most definitely one of the first places you would list if you have the primary holiday requirements of sun, sea and sand. It has this in spades (excuse the pun), but so much more to boot – cuisine, culture and history, not to mention the plethora of awards it has won as a travel destination.

The Sunday Times Travel Magazine voted Greece as the Best European Beach Destination 2012, followed by the Travel Agents’ Choice Awards 2012 for the Best Short Haul Destination for Weddings, Honeymoons and Couples. It also fares extremely well with TripAdvisor with many of its beaches in the Travellers’ Choice 2012 Beach Destinations.

The birthplace of the Olympic Games, Greece is a perfect place for an activity holiday, which could include cycling, rock climbing, basketball and water sports. For the less energetic of you, it’s also a wonderful place to relax, with stunning aquamarine waters and beautiful sandy beaches with a variety of coloured sands, from black, to white, to red – all of which make for unusual and picturesque landscapes.

Take the village of Lindos on the Greek island of Rhodes. Open year-round and with an exceptionally mild climate, this is a popular destination amongst tourists. It is a maze of narrow streets and small shops filled with unique jewellery, pottery, leather goods and regional crafts. The Acropolis dominates the landscape, and if you want the best view, then dine out at one of the village’s many rooftop restaurants at sunset.

With a great nightlife when you want to be sociable, and also with quieter spots for relaxation, it’s a box-ticker of a place for holidays. It’s also easy to get to, with affordable flights available throughout the year.

For a quiet getaway, try this luxury villa with infinity pool situated on the hillside above Kalathos village and a short trip to Lindos (6km). With 3 bedrooms (1 double, 2 twin), pool, air-conditioning, BBQ facilities and stylish interior design, you’d be forgiven for not wanting to leave! Prices start from £600.
