Can any of you seasoned travellers from the UK to Lesvos help re. flights? I'm very keen to get to Lesvos for the first time next year, and we can only travel in early July. Flights out from Heathrow via Athens are no problem, but I'm having trouble with finding convenient return flights.
Aegean Airlines is showing only 2 flights per day from Mytilene to Athens. The first is at 06.25 which is horribly early - if we book this one, can anyone recommend a hotel very close to the airport where we can spend the night before? The second flight is at 20.25 which would mean spending the night in Athens airport to catch an early morning flight back to Heathrow - or breaking our journey with a night or two in Athens, but I fear it will be very hot and crowded in July.
Can anyone tell me if Olympic are likely to fly Mytilene-Athens next summer? The Olympic website is saying 'no flights' - does this mean they just haven't been released yet, or do they really not fly there (despite offering it as a search option)?
I will be grateful for any help and advice from the usual Lesvos suspects! Thanks in advance.
