Initially I assumed this was an error in the route codes. But no, it did in fact go to Gatwick direct, touching down there at lunchtime.
Looking back at the flight history, it appears the same flight was flying weekly throughout Nov, Dec, and January.
Todays flight flew on to Manchester from Gatwick, and is now heading back to Heraklion as I write.
After speaking to Aegean, it appears this is a charter flight. I'm just curious that I've never heard of any regular winter charter flights from Heraklion. Who are these travellers? Where do they go? And, more interesting, could one possibly get a ticket on these flights?
