Friends just got back from Kassiopi apparently the airport was in chaos they couldn't get into the departure lounge went straight through passport control onto the plane. Rumour has it that the Greek airport workers are working to rule from next Friday onwards has anyone heard of this? Reason for asking is that our son and family arrive on Friday 24th and us on Monday 27th?

Hi Barrie

Seems a bit odd. Are they regulars to Corfu airport or are they not used to the chaos that is Corfu airport? (I'm just wondering why its in chaos now if they are not working to rule now, but might be next Friday.)

There was to be airport strikes across Greece starting on Monday 20th until Friday with emergency staff only working, but yesterday this was cancelled.

Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life!

They are regulars to Corfu. There had been delays and diversions due to bad weather and the departure lounge was packed to capacity so for safety reasons they were not allowed in and proceeded straight through onto the flight when the gates opened. Pleased to hear that the pending strikes have been cancelled. We fly from Newcastle on Monday.

I came back form Kassiopi yesterday There was a massive queue outside and the Airport was very busy. Thankfully we were on Jet 2 and there is no queuing outside for them, straight in took us 12 minutes from arriving to getting through security etc. It was great, have been with them a lot of times now and they are great.

Just got back from Zante and their airport was a delight.
Massive check in hall,twice the size of Corfu and we were the only queue there.
Through to departures and there was a well stocked snack bar (also one in the check in hall) and masses of seating.
It was a nice change from our usual Kassiopi but we will be back to our usual Corfu trips from this September.
We just miss it so much.

Not the same, no, but we were lucky to pick Tsilivi as we went through Laganas and it looked way to 18-30 for us.
Nice to have a boat trip and see some turtles up close though but we wont be going there again.
Perhaps a tiny island like Tilos next June.

Friday is always very busy.  Recently have used Corfu airport on Tuesdays and Thursdays, more relaxed feel about the place on these days at the times we were there.

We depart on a Monday at 16.45 was just wondering if if would be really busy! I have heard reports of standing outside for hours, I don't fancy this in mid day heat 😳

Also would you get to the airport 3 hours before and would you print your boarding passes off or get them at the airport!

Sorry for the questions it's been along time since I went to Corfu 😊

Are you travelling independently or with a package? We always print our boarding cards for outward and return journeys before we leave home. We usually get to the airport 2 hours before flying and never queue outside. If you go in the arrivals door and walk to departures you will see your flight and desk listed and you can go straight to check in when they open, or form your own queue at the desk. Hope this helps.

2 hrs max before your flight even if a charter such as Thomas Cook (ensure you have water just incase you are asked to queue outside) if booking independent such as squeezyjet or Ryanair you can go straight to their desk in the arrivals hall.

I am flying with Thomas cook, I am not on a package I have booked it all independently, does that mean I can go straight to the desk?

Yes, we have done so in the past. But enter through the arrivals door and walk down to departures to miss the outside queues.

So the queues outside are made by the reps for the people on packages?
