Possible Cheaper Route To Crete
Posted 13 February 2008 - 11:59 PM
I posted some prices on the Aegean thread but it may be worth your while at least checking out flying from your destination to Dublin and then to Athens!
There are lots of UK airports serving Dublin, so it may be worth checking the website aerlingus.com and fly from your most convenient airport to Athens via Dublin OR possibly check their fares direct from UK to Athens too!
If you look at fares to Dublin and then look for fares to Athens you might be liable for 2 sets of taxes but there is a multicity option which could even be cheaper or subject to 1 set of tax!!
Anyway, play away with possible flight dates and see what you think!
Starts 30th March to Athens.

To be fair, since I booked them my out Sep/back Oct flights have now risen £80 for the 2 of us in the last month, but like your 1st dates are still only around £210. Which is the same price as my earlier in the year GB flights were, but obviously no exotic meal or freebies. Hey ho!
The moral being. He who books early laughs longest (unless there's a glut of spare charter seats).

It's always the way, a lot of the "bargains" are usually at inconvenient flight times, not so bad if you're traveling alone.
If you're tied to specific dates and times then there is very little choice.
Even sometimes flights are shared by different companies and fares on the same flight can vary quite a bit.
