Aegean Airlines has announced that it will begin flights to Athens from London Stansted Airport on 11th July. The route will operate three times per week and will connect easily with a through flight to the islands of Corfu, Kos and Rhodes. Aegean Airlines will now become the first airline to offer business class service to Greece from the UK.
The airlines will connect Stansted Airport to Athens International Airport with tri-weekly flights on Thursday 11th July. The flights will be operated using a brand new Airbus A320 168-seat aircraft, in dual class configuration providing a full service offering to all passengers, which includes complimentary food, drink as well as one checked price of baggage 23kgs.
Aegean already has three daily flights from London Heathrow to Athens so the introduction of these flights from Stansted enables them to increase capacity on the route and also offer more affordable prices. The route will operate for two months until 16th September 2013. The tri-weekly service will provide passengers direct access to Greek capital, as well as making it easier for passengers to continue their journey onwards with a through flight to the islands of Corfu, Kos and Rhodes.
