You lot have got to get real and look at it from a commercial point of view.
As has been said over and over again, Corfu, like Ibiza, is not big enough to merit a once a week service in the winter. We cannot even fill the special charters at Christmas and Easter.
At best, and I have gone as far as having a contract sent to me by Thomas Cook a couple of years ago, I reckon Corfu could fill a plane 10% a week in the winter. Even dragging in people from Ioannina, Paxos, Preveza and Parga isn't going to work. I know because I have done the research.
I also know that people are expecting to pay GBP 99.00 for a return ticket when a breakeven price, even if we could get the plane 2/3 full is GBP 199.00 and that is another major issue.
I do know, for a fact, that Aegean are looking at a touch-down in Corfu en route to Crete all year round, BUT I also know they cannot make the numbers balance, so it is unlikely to happen.
I also know, for a fact, that Cyprus Airways are not in the frame and never have been.
It is possible that a no-frills carrier may do a summer service to Corfu, like they do seasonal sevices to other places, but 110% definitely not in the winter. I would guess they would only offer it June to September because it is not cost-effective outside of that time frame. And please note I use the words 'no-frills' and not 'low cost' carrier as, in my experience, it isn't always the case that the flights are cheap.
With regards to charter flight prices generally, the earlier you book, the less you pay, unless you are looking at shoulder season and you may pick up a bargain. We were selling tickets last winter for July and August this year for GBP 179.00.
