Flights to Kalamata in June?: Appreciate help!

I'm looking to visit a friend in Kalamata in mid-June and not finding flights easily from Athens (I'm coming from Boston- happy to connect through any European city to get to Kalamata). Two years ago in May I had no problem finding a good connection on Aegean but I don't see any flight now.

Any suggestions on airlines/routes to explore?

Many thanks,

John

There are no flights from Athens-Kalamata now that the new motorway has opened and you can drive it in a couple of hours.

2bristolians is/are correct, but there are direct flights into Kalamata from Gatwick with Easyjet and Aegean have direct flights from Munich ,Moscow and Stockholm. There are also charter flights from various European countries.

But not starting until July and the OP wants to fly in June. It will be easier to fly into Athens and drive down as it's motorway all the way.
