Lesvos 2010 flights - update

The flight chaos continues. Here is a summary as of this afternoon.

It's been very difficult obtaining flight only deals this spring until this last week, but today I have heard that the 15 April and 22 April flights out to Lesvos are being cancelled (nothing on their website for 15th flight; flight on 22nd still on their website but at £419 pp) . This is still to be confirmed, but if you have bookings for these dates I advise you to check with your booking agent.

UPDATE - 29/03/10 - 15 April flight appears to have been dropped. The 22 Apr Manchester-Gatwick-Mytilini flight looks OK with FC reporting only a couple of seats left and many folk in receipt of their tickets.


British Airways (tel. 0844 493 0787)

Although no changes to their flight schedule, the treat of strike action remains high so I advise you contact BA or your booking agent as and when industrial action dates are announced to check if your flight is running. BA have carried detailed information on their website during the industrial action last week and this coming week, so this should also be a good source of information.

Aegean Airlines (tel. 0871 200 0040)

Nearly all Aegean flights from Heathrow to Athens and to and from Athens and Mytilini have been changed. I advise you check with Aegean or your booking agent re. your booking.

Note, that there is no longer a mid-afternoon direct return flight from Mytilini to Athens, only morning (0730) and evening (1850) flights now available. The 1335 flight advertised on their website is via Thessaloniki (changing planes).

I've not heard of problems with other carriers (inc. EasyJet and Olympic).
