Oh well. One more Friday to go out to a taverna then back into self isolation until October. The freedom was nice while it lasted.

Been on the side lines for a while,

Family funerals in the UK and sorting out property and then my heart attack in January. Two weeks in intensive care and a stent fitted in my heart.

Recovering slowly but we have a trip planned to Santorini before the influx of UK tourists.

Lets hope we can manage to avoid the Covid-19 virus..

PM me if you would like more details.


Regards

Allan

The fact that direct flights are now allowed from 15 July doesn't necessarily mean that there are flights to Crete from 15 July. I did a quick scan of Easyjet and Ryanair and the earliest I could see was 18 July and from some airports not until 22 July. I think Jet2 have a flight from Manchester to Heraklion on 15 July but that was the only one I could find on that day.

Yes, Ryanair cancelled my flight on the 15th for some reason last week and easyjet definitely arent going. Managed to book one with Jet 2 from Birmingham so hope that is still going.

I think you need to be careful when articles say "from" a date, however it looks like the previous ban until 23:59 on July 15th has been amended to 23:59 July the 14th.
