Book flights to Greece

The mesmerising Acropolis, the balmy blue waters of the Aegean Sea and the welcoming local tavernas in every town serving fresh, authentic Greek food. There’s a lot to love about Greece, which makes it that much harder to narrow down where to visit first.

British Airways flies to many of Greece’s top destinations. For an unmissable city break, visit the Greek capital city of Athens, with its heady mix of breath-taking ancient landmarks and buzzing creative scene. Fly direct to Rhodes for some winter sun and take a stroll in its Old Town, Europe’s oldest medieval city. If you plan to go island-hopping, there’s no better place to start than Kefalonia to explore its hidden coves and serene beaches. As Greece’s largest island, you can’t go wrong with a holiday in Crete, with its diverse landscapes and unique Minoan history. Mykonos is a must for its famously hedonistic party scene, set alongside beautiful beaches and traditional whitewashed houses. Book your holiday to Greece with us today.

Greece flight FAQs

How long is a flight to Greece?

The average flight time from London to Athens is 3 hours and 30 minutes, with a flight to Kefalonia taking around the same amount of time. Flights to Crete and Rhodes take a little longer at 4 hours.

Which airports do British Airways fly to Greece from?

We frequently fly to Greece from all major London airports, with a number of different flight times every week.

What's the cheapest month to fly to Greece?

The cheapest months to fly to Greece are usually from December to March. If you’re looking for winter sun, Crete and Rhodes are both great choices. Avoid the peak season of July and August if you want to avoid the crowds and extremely hot weather. Keep an eye out for our special offers or search our low fare finder.

Is Greece cheap to visit?

Greece is one of the most affordable destinations in Europe, with fresh, affordable Mediterranean cuisine at the many tavernas and reasonable prices for accommodation. When planning your trip, keep in mind that Mykonos and Santorini are slightly more expensive so it pays to travel there in the off-peak season.

Is it easy to get around Greece?

If you’re on the mainland visiting Athens or other towns, it’s relatively easy to get around on buses. If you’re island-hopping, the best way to get around would be by hiring a car or scooter or taking a ferry. Or sit back and let us take care of everything and book one of our exciting Greece holiday packages.

If you want to go off the beaten path and explore in your own time, hire a car with British Airways and collect Avios on every rental.
