Smile CRETE

My wife and I are planning to live long-term in Crete. We are aware that there are loads of cheap filights from Crete to UK (London) and vice versa from April to October but cannot see any published flights, especially cheap flights during November to March. Any help will be most welcome. Dave S

You'll be stuck with Olympic via Athens most likely, the charter flights all stop at the end of the season. When we lived on Rhodes, you just learn to mostly buckle down for the winter.

If you get no joy with Olympic, Try Aegean Air.

This is a very high quality airline. They have 2 flights/day Athens- Heathrow (maybe 3 now) and many shuttles between the Crete airports & Athens.

Come down to the South west coast. Unspoiled, beautiful not too touristy. You'll love it
