British Airways is to run a summer service to Kalamata in Greece next year.
Flights will operate from Heathrow twice a week to the Greek region of Messinia in southwest Peloponnese, providing access to Costa Navarino, venue for last month’s Abta Travel Convention.
The service is to operate on Thursdays and Saturdays between April 30 and September 24 with a 168 passenger capacity aircraft.
The move means that Kalamata will become one of the few Greek airports connected direct to Heathrow.
Stephanos Theodorides, vice chairman and managing director, of Costa Navarino parent, TEMES, said: “We are truly honoured that British Airways will commence two direct flights from Heathrow to Kalamata in April of 2016.
“At the same time, we are truly delighted that our joint co-operation with the prefecture of Peloponnese will contribute to such an impactful outcome, with significant benefits, both for the region, Costa Navarino and the country itself.
“Costa Navarino is the first to open and the last to close the tourist season in Greece, giving our UK guests the chance to unwind, while enjoy the accommodation and facilities offered by the two hotels - The Romanos, a Luxury Collection Resort & The Westin Resort, Costa Navarino.
