Indicative of the high demand from the United Kingdom is that the low-cost airline easyJet announced new routes to Kefalonia, Kos, Corfu and Chania. At the same time, it strengthened the offer of seats at the airports of Gatwick, Luton, Bristol and Manchester to three more Greek first-line destinations, Santorini, Mykonos and Rhodes.

In terms of destinations that will welcome the largest volume of foreign tourists in the first days of May, Athens is in first place, with more than 360 thousand travelers expected to land at Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos”. Great mobility is also recorded for the airport of Heraklion, followed by Rhodes, which… presses the accelerator in the second 15 days of May, and Thessaloniki and Corfu complete the top five.
