Southampton Airport will be introducing a new route to Skiathos with its newest airline FlyLolo starting July 2018, the first time the airport has offered a direct route to Greece.
Flights will be operated by Flybe on an Embraer 195 aircraft and will run from 3 July until 2 October 2018.
“It is fantastic to offer our first direct route to Greece from Southampton Airport,” said managing director of Southampton Airport, Dave Lees. Adding, “Flights to Skiathos can be difficult to find, even when travelling to London, so we are delighted to be able to offer this beautiful destination to the south coast. We wish FlyLolo all the best for their new route.”
Paul Dendle, CEO of FlyLolo, said: “FlyLolo are really pleased, and proud, to be the first operator to fly to Greece from Southampton Airport. We see an excellent future for Southampton as an alternative for London, and with the direct rail link, it makes it a fantastic option for passengers from the South East of England. Southampton Airport offers a blend of easy, fast and friendly when compared to other airports. With the added value of us providing ATOL protected flights with Flybe, child discounts, and no credit card charges, we believe we have a winning combination.”
