New Departure Day for Paxos Holidays in 2013
Whilst we historically operate our holidays to Paxos along with most other tour operators on a Monday, we found in recent years it became increasingly difficult to offer an efficient speedy transfer service due to the infrequency of the ferry or hydrofoil schedules from Corfu Town to Gaios (regular Ionian guests will appreciate the additional waiting time this added to their journey). Therefore we took the initiative to be the first tour operator to offer holidays to Paxos on a Sunday.
From 2013 onwards all Paxos holidays will now depart on Sundays and instead of arriving in Corfu Airport, you will be flying into Prevesa Airport (mainland west coast Greece). This now means that the transfer to Paxos will be by coach from Prevesa to Parga and onward sea crossing by our own private chartered boat to Gaios.
Total transfer time will be will be approximately 2hours from the airport to Gaios port.
The vessel ‘Vicky F’ carries up to 300 hundred passengers, has two open decks and one enclosed air conditioned deck for your comfort. A bar will be available on board to purchase beverages and snacks during the crossing. There is plenty space to walk about or simply to sit back, relax and enjoy the journey.
We are confident you will agree changing the flying day to Sundays has many benefits, not only will it enable us to offer our Paxos clients a more seamless transfer as there will be no waiting required for scheduled ferries or hydrofoil crossings. Moreover, from our extensive client research we have found that most people prefer to travel over the weekend, thus taking less time out of their busy schedules.
New flying schedule is as follows:
London Gatwick to Preveza
Dep: 06.50hrs / Arr: 12.10hrs Dep Prevesa: 13.00hrs / Arr: 14.10hrs Flying with Monarch MON 7918/9 From South Terminal
Manchester to Prevesa
Dep: 07:00hrs / Arr: 12:30hrs Dep: Prevesa 13:45hrs /Arr: 15:05hrs Flying with Monarch MON 5642/3 From Terminal 2
This now opens up new fabulous opportunities for multi-centre holiday combinations with Paxos, such as Lefkada Meganisi, Parga and the beautiful Epirus coast on the Mainland.
