Re: Flying Crete - UK

I think it is very wise of people who are older or in a high risk group to be extra cautious and stay at home as much as they can and i would not criticise you for doing so. We have all made sacrifices for a long time now. I am just annoyed by people who say no-one should go to the beach or restaura...

Re: Flying Crete - UK

Instinct says stay at home but if we dont go anyway the airlines are screwed, tourism and businesses are screwed, and there will be no employment and society will collapse.We would not get any food if we didnt go anywhere and there was no transport. Im not suggesting we all party but we have to star...

Re: Flying Crete - UK

The figure of cases per 100, 000 has gone higher in Greece than in the UK by 5 points,but of course Crete is probably safer than the mainland as is some parts of the Uk to others. Nowhere is really 'safe' and its time we stopped this obsession with country stats comparisons. This is a worldwide cris...

Pool specialists in Chania area

Looking for some really good, reliable pool specialists in the Chania area as looking at some major changes to my pool involving a new system and some construction. Obviously for next year but would like to get the ball rolling soon.

Re: What to expect arriving at Chania airport

Exactly the same for us, Lollie! In particular we are wondering if everyone has to pile into a bus, as usual, to be driven a few yards from the plane to the terminal. Joan From what I have read and heard no buses at the moment so you probably have to walk 100 yards or so. We arrived in Heraklion an...

Re: What to expect arriving at Chania airport

Yes forgot to mention that the toilet at Heraklion airport was shut. Crazy!!! Quite a few desperate people who had avoided going on the plane i should imagine and then had to get a car and travel to their hotels.

Re: What to expect arriving at Chania airport

We were on the first plane to arrive in Heraklion from Birmingham. You were directed into either left or right channel. I was split up from my partner as iwas said to be one person from each household ( which they can see from the QR codes from EVERY prrson, even kids ). It was very quick with no de...

Re: Direct flights from the UK to Greece from 15th July confirmed.

I did the idiotic thing of doing the same numbers when it started so i feel forced into continuing my gamble each week because if i dont do it and i see those numbers come up i will be suicidal. I occasionally win but never big. My dad won that 20k lottery code thing which has stopped now.

Re: Direct flights from the UK to Greece from 15th July confirmed.

I agree, it should certianly be looked at as a worldwide problem and we are in it together and should be working together.I am fed up with the individual countries blaming each other and boasting about how they are dealing with it better than others. (Still gonna blame the chinese government though-...

Re: Direct flights from the UK to Greece from 15th July confirmed.

Acually, apologies to the greek press, it was the Daily Express that had the headline regarding the probable reclosure of greek borders to which Theoharis (tourism minister)replied on sky news that this was Nonsense. British press once again.

Re: Direct flights from the UK to Greece from 15th July confirmed.

I read IN THE PRESS that the goverment said in the previous report (around the 13th) that the fact that had said they were "considering reclosing the borders " was "NONSENSE." and that they were not reconsidering this. That was a couple of days later. This was the greek press on ...

Re: Direct flights from the UK to Greece from 15th July confirmed.

I read a report from a greek site maybe quoted on here that said so many cases from planes in the last couple of weeks had caused the government to think about reclosing its borders.The government then announced that this was nonsense. I then read that since the uk flights came in on 15th and 16th t...
