The British carrier will also increase frequency on its routes to Mykonos and Santorini. Flights to Mykonos will increase to six times a week and to Santorini five times a week from the airports of Heathrow and London City.
Also, the airline will resume flights to Thessaloniki from Gatwick (four flights a week) for the summer season.
