British Airways flights to the beautiful Greek islands of Mykonos and Santorini from 4th May will fly direct from Heathrow. It’s the first time the airline has ever flown to the two Greek islands,which will be served by an Airbus A320 with 162 seats and offering ClubEurope and Euro Traveller cabins.
The twice-weekly service to Mykonos starts from May 3 and to Santorini on May 4, with return fares starting from £254 and £233, respectively.
Richard Tams, British Airways’ head of UK&I sales and marketing, said:“Mykonos and Santorini are great short-haul holiday destinations and we think they’ll prove really popular with customers and sun-seekers.“They’re perfect for spending time relaxing in the sun on the beach or chilling out in the myriad of cool bars with stunning views over the Mediterranean.”
