Zakynthos is the newsiest addition to BA’s flights to Greece, which include Rhodes, Athens, Thessaloniki, Santorini, Mykonos, Kos, Heraklion, Chania, Kalamata and Kerkyra.

She pointed out that the new destination proved the significance of the Greek market for BA, as well as the support provided on a local level. The air craft used for the flights will be the Airbus A320 from terminal 5 in Heathrow Airport and passengers will have the potion to choose between Euro Traveller (economy class) and Club Europe (business class). Passengers will be allowed travel with a 23kg luggage free of charge.
