British Airways has added Chania and Kalamata Greece to its 2016 summer schedule as well as increasing frequency on other popular Greek destinations

​Both sunshine routes will be available to book from November 17, with the first flights taking to the skies from April 30, 2016.

Holidaymakers will be able to visit Chania in Crete, with its Venetian harbour, or Kalamata, popular for its world-famous olive groves.

Neil Cottrell, Head of Network planning, said: “We’re delighted to be offering our customers more choices to popular holiday hot-spots. We know these new holiday routes are going to prove incredibly popular after increasing our number of flights to Santorini earlier this year and we are pleased we can give our customers an even greater choice of places to get away from it all”.

The flights to both destinations will be served by a mixture of A319 and A320 aircraft from Heathrow.

British Airways will also increase its frequency to Corfu and Santorini for the summer 2016 season. Corfu will increase to six flights per week, with Santorini increasing to four.
