I can’t find any flight. According to this http://www.ryanair.com/en/new-routes , they start from Volos to Milan 27/5 however there are not available flights at all. I’ll check again though!

Hi DE, How are you? Nice to see you here again.

I deduce that the five-euro ticket sale applies to destinations that do not include Greece, though the press release doesn’t say that. I think this because it says the fare applies to flights occurring late March and April; well, if the flights to Greece don’t start until May, then there’s no way anyone can take advantage of this fare for a March or April flight from/to Greece.

But in your case, where you want to book a flight for May, I don’t know what their system is. Some low-cost airlines don’t allow passengers to book that far in advance; some do.

This is good news. It would be good if there were more flights into Kalamata airport in Messinia as they are badly needed. Let hope we get them soon.

Hmmm, I’m wondering why London is not on that list!

Kat Reply:

Probably because that market is dominated by easyJet.

These are routes to places that have nothing more to offer that cheap alcohol, or___, r___, etc, for low income tourists that are only going to spend money to get drunk, puke on the streets. Even the hotels that these people live in are owned by german/british companies and are “all-inclusive”, which means that this whole show is not boosting local economy at all!

This is the worst kind of tourism, but I suppose “low-cost” airlines like this one are dependent on it :(

I respect your opinion, though I want to point out that Volos is quite a nice location not known for what you stated. And, I’m sure you’ll agree, many places in Greece and the world (unfortunately) have this reputation, so I don’t think airlines or locals can get away from it. Further, many residents of all nationalities aren’t exactly Puritans either.
