Aegean Airlines has announced it will begin flights to Athens from London Stansted Airport on July 11th.
The route will operate three times per week and will connect easily with a through flight to the islands of Corfu, Kos and Rhodes.
It will be the very first airline to offer a business class service and offering to these Greek islands from the UK.
Aegean will connect Stansted Airport to Athens International airport with tri-weekly flights, on Thursday July 11th.
The flights will be operated using a brand new Airbus A320 168-seat aircraft, in dual class configuration providing a full service offering to all passengers, which includes complimentary food and drink, as well as one checked piece of baggage 23kgs.
Business class passengers and Gold card members will have use of the business lounge at London Stansted Airport and an extra checked piece of baggage.
This additional route is a seasonal one and has been introduced because of the increased demand for flights to Athens from London.
Aegean already has three daily flights from London Heathrow to Athens so the introduction of these flights from Stansted enables them to increase capacity on the route and also offer more affordable prices.
The route will operate for two months until September 16th 2013.
The tri-weekly service will provide passengers with direct access to the Greek capital, as well as making it easier for passengers to continue their journey onwards with a through flight to the islands of Corfu, Kos and Rhodes.
