Elliemay this is really interesting. Just worked out that you can fly Stansted to Corfu (via Ciampino). It is cheaper than direct and not a huge difference in time. I need to check this further and double check timings but it is an option for future. Also worth considering is few days in Rome en-route to Corfu if you have never been there.
Beside the sea all worries wash away!!

We flew Corfu - Bergamo - Manchester last October.  We specifically took the last flight out to Manchester on the Saturday evening so that we had heaps of time in Bergamo.  What a wonderful place for a quick visit - we now intend to return for a long weekend.

Left luggage and local bus stance right outside airport building - couldn't be easier to make the short trip to Bergamo centre/old town/castle. Cool

Interesting to see that flights are starting early. We have never been in April before but have booked first flight out of East Midlands on 3 April. It will be interesting to see how many people are on the flight and whether these early flights are encouraging businesses to gear up for an earlier season start. We are staying in Kassiopi and are not expecting to see much open. Have always wanted to see the island out of the main season though, so really looking forward to it.

The flights have started earlier for the past couple of years but, alas, the Corfiots have still not adjusted their 1st May season start date. (old habits die hard)!!  I think maybe the weather may have something to do with it as March/April can still be very wet.

Ryanair from Prestwick to Corfu one way on 25th April was £19.99 last time I looked.  Thats cheap!!
I am on the flight but paid much more than that even booking early.

The season always used to start at the end of March Sue Avrio- it was the "old habits" that had to change when tour operatorschanged their start dates!
However a friend of mine who had a villa company never liked sending clients in April- can be fantastic BUT she said those clients rarely came back as all too often apartments were still damp from the winter, and the weather was too unreliable.
There will be tourists in April this year anyway even without the flights- the school trips that come in the two weeks leading up to the Easter holidays.

I can answer that Sue, yes they did, of course as Jan said beds were always damp, pillows smelt of mushrooms, weather was always unpredictable, in those days there were not as many businesses in operation anyway.(For instance, San Stephanos NE only had, if my memory serves me, 3 tavernas, one of which is now a tourist shop, 1 bar, and one very small shop)
We have close friends who holiday in Greece twice every year and many years ago chose Corfu two years running, unfortunately the weather was miserable  both times, now we have our house there is no way they would visit with us. They tended to use scheduled flights to Athens then on from there, of course weather elsewhere has always been good.

I suppose in those days there were less small resorts- Sidari was a lovely unspoilt tiny hamlet for instance, and Acharavi was a few house clustered round the well! 
So most tourism then was confined to the area between Messonghi and Corfu Town in the south, Ipsos to Corfu Town in the north and Paleocastritsa in the west.  Kassiopi  had a good few tourists though also.
 
You could always get a meal in these areas, and of course Corfu Town easily, even at the end of March, and end of October at the other end, although I do remember one year when there was a CAA strike which grounded all flights for 4 days and all clients nended up in the Corfu Palace as their own hotels had closed as they had left for the airport (on the day they should have left!)

Thanks guys - interesting. I wonder whether times will change yet again as even the smaller resorts now have visitors from March/April. I agree that a big problem is the dampness due to poor insulation though. When we have visited during the winter we have had very limited choice of accomodation with heating.

Bazzalfc, please don't let me put you off, we will be there on the 18th, we had planned to arrive mid February, but things to do etc;
It will be chilly in the evenings, a light cagool is a good idea, if you don't need it, great.

First time we went to Kassiopi was beginning of May and villa (on the headland) was damp and cold even though it had been used during Easter by the owner.
Luckily Mickey from "One for the Road" lent us a heater but it never put us off at all.
The year before we had stopped in Imerolia in October and the temperature reached 28C one dayStar
In fact this June will be our 7th visit.
