Rhodes holiday season extended January 10, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Greece Islands Aegean, News Flights.

Direct flights to the Greek island of Rhodes are starting earlier this year giving the island a longer holiday season.

Twice-weekly services to Rhodes with British Airways will start from March 28th 2007 before going up to four per week from May 24th 2007. The airline launched direct flights to the island in May last year, which were highly popular with British holidaymakers.

This year, the airline is expecting an influx of travellers heading for springtime sunshine over the Easter holidays in Rhodes.

Greek Easter is on the same day as the UK’s in 2007, giving holidaymakers a chance to experience local celebrations on the island, which include parades, fireworks and church services. The celebrations will usually start on Maundy Thursday and build up to a big Easter Sunday dinner of roasted lamb.

Flights depart from London Gatwick and cost from £69 each way including taxes.
