Sussex flight operator offers Southampton to Greece in 2018

Flybe 195 jet landing is the first flight operator to fly from Southampton to Greece. Southampton airport is situated just off the M27 and easily accessible from Sussex as an alternative to Gatwick.

The company is operating full plane charters, currently using Flybe aircraft, to operate a direct service to the Greek island of Skiathos for Summer 2018, using twin jet E195 aircraft.

With good leg room, and less passengers, it complements the already established reputation of Southampton Airport of being easy, fast and passenger-friendly. With less stress for passengers and shorter check-ins, coupled with competitive fares, believes it has a winning combination.

As well as Skiathos, Flylolo are planning the following routes for 2018, and into 2019, from Southampton, with more routes currently envisaged :

● Almeria in Spain
● Dubrovnik and Split in Croatia
● Salonika (Thessaloniki) & Kefalonia in Greece
● Florence & Bari in Italy
● Burgas in Bulgaria.

Specialising in flights during the high season only, Flylolo cater for those needing to travel during the school holidays. By just flying for the summer holidays, the company says it doesn’t have to raise its prices to make up for flying empty planes seats when the children are still at school. This allows Flylolo to be very competitive, and they say their mission is to be cheaper than their competitors, and not just on the flight price – they aim to be cheaper still on checked-in baggage, saving passengers even more money on flight bookings.

As well as the Southampton programme the company is also flying Gatwick to Tenerife, with Christmas 2018 on sale.

Flylolo is a flight operator with ATOL (membership 11256) based at Chichester University in Bognor Regis Campus, and is fully financially protected. All monies are held in a CAA Trust account (Civil Aviation Authority) and there is also scheduled airline financial insurance included in the headline airfares.

The company has also signed a co-operation agreement with Corona Holidays (who also provide financially protected bookings) to offer accommodation in hotels and apartments together with resort transfers. See was set up by West Sussex travel entrepreneur, Paul Dendle – the company’s CEO. With a history of building successful flight companies, Paul has built a successful connection with airlines, airports and travel companies throughout the UK and Europe. His first flight operator, Avro Plc, was the fourth largest flight operating company in the UK, flying over 1.2 million passengers a year, selling to Monarch Airlines in 1995. Since then, various airline related companies have been formed including Flylolo which is planned to specialise in flights from Southampton.
