Coming to Santorini from the United States! If you’re travelling all this way, you might as well make sure you have a good time.
FLYING TO SANTORINI. Let’s start with the basics – I really recommend you choose the upper class or at least for your flight to Athens, you really need to take into account the long flight! Trust me – you do not want to arrive tired and with an aching back etc.! That being said, you need to do your research – around 30 airlines operate the Santorini airport, so you have a wide choice; I suggest you look up at least 20 offers before buying your tickets. Generally Great Western Airlines, Olympic Airlines and Aegean Airlines deliver the best quality — start with those, but do not buy the first tickets you find. You can also look for package deals, but consider how they fulfil your travelling needs.
