SCRIPT>Xmas direct flights to Corfu sound a lot simpler than all these other options, what's the point in going here, there and everywhere, specially if you're on a time limit!! Unless of course you plan on making a holiday of the journey. I'm sure all the other options will work out more expensive when you consider overnight stays, boats, cabins, meals, drinks etc etc....
Personally , i think it's important to support the efforts of the locals who are arranging the direct flights !!! Because we want more of them, don't we??
