On the 20th of May, Aegean Airlines celebrated its first flight between Stansted and El Venizelos (Athens), by welcoming passengers with champagne, gifts and a party atmosphere. The introduction of the twice-daily, year round service between Stansted and Athens provides passengers with a real alternative for their travel to Greece and to Rhodes as Aegean Airlines offers several daily connections to Rhodes’ Diagoras airport. Departure times from London are at 10:20 and 20:00, and from Athens at 07:30 and 17:10.
