SAVVAIDIS & Associates | Rhodes – Well Connected

Posted on August 1, 2013 by


Three low cost airlines are in discussions with representatives in Rhodes regarding the possibility of commencing direct flights to and from the island, connecting it to a variety of European destinations.

Last week, the companies, EasyJet,  Jet2 and Norwegian all had meetings with Gianni Pappou, the President of the Chamber of Commerce for the Dodecanese.EasyJet

It is worth noting that today, EasyJet flys to 12 Greek destinations with direct flights from the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Switzerland and Germany: a massive contribution to the support and promotion of Greek tourism.

 EasyJet, who started back in 1998 with its first flight to Athens, has constantly widened its network.  An increase of 11% is expected in 2013 of passengers using the airline to fly to/from Greece, in comparison with 2012.

 Jet2 is a leading low cost airline, with 42 airplanes in 8 UK airports, and serves 178 routes to more than 50 destinations.

 Finally, Norwegian, the second largest airline in Scandinavia, and the third low cost airline in Europe, has 359 routes to 121 destinations in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

Savvas Savvaidis of SAVVAIDIS & Associates looks forward to the discussions coming to a positive conclusion.  Continuing to make Rhodes more accessible can only have a positive impact on the island as a whole but more specifically these new flights will make it much easier for our clients to decide to choose Rhodes as their “landing place” for their dream holiday home.  To see a selection of properties offered by SAVVAIDIS & Associates please click here.
