Aer Lingus Launches New Service to Santorini in Their Summer 2021 Schedule
From May 2021, holidaymakers will enjoy new service on Aer Lingus to the Greek Island of Santorini, expanding the carrier’s Greek offer to four routes in addition to Rhodes, Corfu and Athens.
On Friday (December 4, 2020), Aer Lingus announced the addition of a new route to their summer 2021 schedule with direct service between Dublin and the Greek island of Santorini from May 2021. This expands the carrier’s offer to Greece to four routes including service to Rhodes, Corfu and Athens. The picturesque Aegean jewel of Santorini provides a stunning backdrop to any holidaymaker’s sun-soaked journey with spectacular horizon views and a dramatic vista. The island’s volcanic remnants have been transformed into expansive cave hotels, plunge pools and rocky viewpoints. With magnificent orange skies and chalk white houses as the backdrop, visitors will enjoy local fare served in cliffside eateries as they marvel at the black sand beaches and infinite views. In Friday’s announcement, Aer Lingus’ Chief Commercial Officer, David Shepherd, said,
“We are delighted to announce our new service to Santorini as part of Aer Lingus’ Summer 2021 schedule and really give Irish holidaymakers something to look forward to. With the encouraging developments regarding vaccines and the introduction of improved testing regimes we are gearing up for a busy summer ahead. Our customers can book their summer holidays with confidence thanks to our flexible booking options and travel in the knowledge that the airline prioritizes the safety and wellbeing of our customers and our people at all times.”
More adventurous visitors to Santorini can sail to the spectacular volcano-islets of Paleá Kaméni and Néa Kaméni or explore over forty designated scuba sites, while those looking to relax and unwind can visit Boutari, near Megalohóri, the location of Santorini’s first industrial winery.
Aer Lingus’ new service to Santorini will commence on May 1st, 2021 and will operate twice-weekly through September 25, 2020. One-way fares are available now on the company’s website starting at only €79.99. The carrier’s ‘Book with Confidence’ program allows customers to plan their travel with additional peace of mind. Customers enjoy unlimited free flight changes on any route and fare through May 31, 2021. Travelers booking Plus, Smart, Advantage or Flex fares will receive a guaranteed voucher is they choose not to travel, while customers booking Advantage fares can also choose a refund.
