Either get your self down to Manchester or Gatwick then Easyjet or down to Heathrow then Aegean Airlines.

BA is often quite a bit cheaper than Aegean.

Cheapest way from Glasgow to Athens is via Gatwick with Easyjet. Just had a quick look at flights and your looking to pay around £150-£160 incl tax, plus bags.

Example of flight times :-

09:25 GLA Glasgow International easyJet

10:50 LGW London Gatwick 1h 25

Connect in airport 1h 50

12:40 LGW London Gatwick easyJet

18:20 ATH Athens International 3h 40

Thu 30 Sep 2010

14:40 ATH Athens International easyJet

16:25 LGW London Gatwick 3h 45

Connect in airport 4h 30

20:55 LGW London Gatwick easyJet

22:25 GLA Glasgow International 1h 30

It might work out slightly cheaper taking the BA shuttle from Gatwick back to Glasgow which is 5 mins earlier, since they dont charge extra for luggage, if you are taking any?

My friend always travels KLM at the moment from Glasgos to Athens, I think he pays between £220-£250 including all taxes and charges, via Amsterdam. Goto their website to find out exact times and prices www.klm.com Also give BA a go at www.ba.com

If you have exact dates, post them on here and ill work it out for you. let me know if you are taking luggage or not.

Thanks for the replies. I used to fly with Flyglobespan & paid around £100-£130 for a direct flight from Glasgow to Athens, though now they have went into administration.

Need to be in Athens for Sunday 26th, as I have a wedding to attend that day and yes I will be taking luggage aswell... around 15kg!

Including luggage £211.95. If you pay by debit card there is a £7 charge in total and if you pay by credit card there is a £16 charge in total.

Dont forget with easyjet you can take any weight of hand luggage.

Better connecting flights are available with KLM although it costs a little more:-

Saturday 25th September

16:30 Glasgow

19:05 Amsterdam

6h10

KLM

KL1478

20:30 Amsterdam

00:40Athens

KLM

KL1581

This flight arrives 1 day later.

Sunday 3rd October

16:30 Athens

19:00 Amsterdam

7h15

KLM

KL1576

21:15 Amsterdam

21:45 Glasgow

KLM

KL1481

Total price is £264. No extra charge for debit cards. £4.50 extra charge for credit cards.

On easyjet connecting flights, you will need to collect your luggage and check in again. On KLM they will transfer your luggage automaticallly.

These flights are subject to availabilty and on the KLM flights its the last couple of seats available at this price.

If you use a Visa Electron card for Easyjet bookings there is no card fee, handy to know
