Flylolo to run flights from Southampton to Greece

The budget seat-only operator set up by former Avro boss Paul Dendle is to run flights from Southampton to Greece.

The self-proclaimed travel entrepreneur, who sold a majority stake in Avro to Monarch Airlines in 1991, is to operate peak summer flights to Skiathos in 2018 using a Flybe aircraft.

A previous plan to operate a summer series of flights from Bournemouth airport to Skiathos last year was pulled just two months after being announced after the airline planning to provide the service withdrew from the operation.

The company has secured an Atol for financial protection and provides scheduled flight insurance against airline failure.

Starting July 2018, it will be the first time that Southampton airport has offered a direct route to Greece.

Flights will run from July 3 until October 2 using a Flybe Embraer 195 regional jet.
