Traveling to Greece

Cool Deal: The Colder Your Departure Airport Is, the Bigger the Discount That Aegean Gives Flying to Greece

Written by Charlie

Aegean Airlines has a cool new promo that will reward you with a discount from 20-40% off airfare to Greece – all depending on how cool your departure airport is (in 10 countries).

Last year, we saw Aegean Airlines launch an unprecedented number of promotions as part of the country’s efforts to bring tourists to the beautiful nation that relies so heavily on tourists. We will likely see many promos again this year and this is a pretty cool one!

Aegean Airlines Launches “Sunshine Discount” for Cheaper Rates

Here is the deal in a nutshell: If you are originating from any of these countries – United Kingdom, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium and Poland – you are going to get a discount between 20% and 40%, depending on what the temperature difference is between your city and the city in Greece.

These temperatures are updated on a pretty regular basis and it means that trying to get to a much warmer location from where you are will save you quite a bit of money on the flight! This is really a cool promo to reward those who are in the coolest climates if they want to head to the beautiful sunshine-bathed beaches and cities of Greece.

Here are all the details in, well, more detail:

  • The offer is calculated based on the temperature difference of the passenger’s preferred departure airport and the destination chosen in Greece.
