As we are not like most hotels or beach resorts, it’s only normal that you would have a few questions about your holiday and how things work. Below is a list of the most common queries we get asked. We have tried to answer as many as possible but if there is something you can’t find an answer to, please get in touch with our friendly sales team who will happily help you with whatever query you have.
Frequently asked questions about our flights to Zakynthos.
WHICH AIRLINES FLY TO ZAKYNTHOS/ZANTE?
On Saturdays, British Airways, EasyJet, Thompson, TUI and Jet2 all fly direct to the island from London Airports. On Sundays, the two main airlines that fly are EasyJet and Thompson. There are other airlines, so we recommend you look on skyscanner.net. If you are flying from another Greek island it’s worth looking at Sky Express for easy, quick and good value flights to the island.
WHAT IS THE AIRPORT CALLED?
Zakynthos or Zante – Airport Code ZTH
Car Hire FAQs

DO I NEED TO BOOK A CAR OR A TAXI?
