While this will be a bit of a bitter deal for my American readers who may not be able to visit Greece this summer, this is certainly one of the best deals I have seen from Aegean Airlines! If you plan on being in Greece at all this summer, this is a deal you want to check out (if you have kids!).
Aegean Airlines – Children Fly Free
Here are the details regarding this new Aegean Airlines promotion:
- Free tickets for infants and children up to 12 years old
- 1 additional free checked baggage up to 23kg for the whole family
- Double Miles+Bonus award miles
- 50% discount on all upfront seats, upon availability
- 50% discount on travelling with pets
- Promotion is valid for flights from July 1 until September 6
- Must book by June 30
- Use code FAMILYDEAL
I have already checked out the value of this and it is a good deal! Remember that you need to pick a Flex fare (which is something that they had dropped in price when they stopped selling their Light fares) but it is still a good deal! Also, you will need to pay airport charges. I picked a sample flight of Thessaloniki to Santorini and the €54 fare was dropped to just €15 for a child to cover the airport charges.
While most people will be traveling from/to/through Athens, keep in mind that those airport charges are quite hefty! Also, this deal works for any Aegean ticket for international or domestic, so if you want to visit a Greek island, there are some flights from around Europe that fly directly to the islands which would let you skip Athens.
This works for 1 child with 1 adult so you will need to have as many adults as children to take advantage of the deal.
