British Airways on Wednesday announced the launch of a new route from London Heathrow to Kefalonia for summer 2018.

From May 15 until October 6, 2018, travelers will be able to fly direct from London Heathrow’s Terminal 5 to the island of Kefalonia in the Ionian. Flights will depart from London every Tuesday and Saturday.

This is the first time British Airways will launch a flight to the Greek island, which is home to some of Greece’s best beaches and the setting to Louis de Bernieres’ novel-turned-film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin.

With the addition of Kefalonia to the list of British Airways’ destinations in Greece, the airline extends to a total of 13 and includes Athens, Thessaloniki, Mykonos, Santorini, Kos, Rhodes, Heraklion, Chania, Kalamata, Corfu, Zakynthos and Skiathos.

“The addition of Kefalonia to our list of destinations in Greece confirms the importance of the market for British Airways,” Freddie Stier, British Airways’ Commercial Manager Europe, said.

“We now cover a total of 13 destinations in the country and we think we offer the best choices for those who intend to visit it in the summer of 2018,” Stier added.

Moreover, British Airways has announced that next summer Mykonos will be served six times a week from four.
