Cobalt Air has a new twice-weekly service from London Gatwick to Athens starting on 31st March.

Andrew Madar, CEO, Cobalt Air commented:

We are delighted to have this opportunity to widen our footprint in European aviation and commence direct London to Athens services at the end of this month. The travelling public has taken the relatively young Cobalt brand and its ethos to its heart. Our presence in Athens is already strong due to our existing services to Larnaca and Pafos from the Greek capital. We are very excited to bring additional competition and attractive fares to the London to Athens route.
