“45 minutes flight to avoid ferries”
Review of Olympic Air [NOT the same as Olympus Airways]


Reviewed 27 October 2018

We flew JTR to ATH on a DHC plane with 3-3 configuration. The flight was only 45 minutes on Olympia Air, a subsidiary of Aegean Airlines. Santorini airport was cramped even at end of season. There was insufficient seats while waiting for departure. The plane was clean and comfortable. We were offered a beverage and biscuits on board. Flying to Santorini is a good option to avoid the ferries which can take about 6 hours for the same journey.

It was a 1 hour flight, but incredibly uncomfortable. They fly at 7:00 am, so you have to be at the airport at 5 am (4:30 am if you are returning a car). The attendants know how uncomfortable it is, so they do their best to calm everyone down for an hour.

Expect screaming babies, tempers flaring, and lots of yelling. But, it is the only flight to make connections from crete to Athens to make your connection to the USA.

Knowing that they charge additional fees if you check a bag at the airport, I did it online the previous day. When I arrived at the airport they said that the payment hadn't gone through and I had to pay the airport rate (twice the online rate). Despite having proof that their system showed me that the payment had been completed, the airport agents were unhelpful. They even tried to convince me that when the online system says that something is "paid" it means that you have to click there to pay, so they either can't speak English or they are intentionally trying to fool customers. After arriving at my destination I contacted their customer support, but no one replied.
