TO GREECE FROM UKThere are no direct flights to Alonissos - only to neighbouring
island Skiathos. Skiathos: There are many direct flights to Skiathos. Charter/holiday
flights operate from Gatwick, Manchester and many regional airports. However they
only travel on weekdays. So in order not to miss any of the course (if you are
only staying one week) you need to find a flight on a Monday or Tuesday or Sunday
evening. If you travel for a two week period there is no problem as you can fit
the course week in the middle. Or: Athens: At week-ends you can get charters or
scheduled flights to Athens and then either an internal domestic flight (Olympic)
to Skiathos ( this departs from the same airport and can be booked by your travel
or flight agent from the UK) or, via a taxi from the airport, take an air-conditioned
coach from Alkyon Travel Office, Academia 97, central Athens - to Ag. Konstantinos
( a port on the mainland east coast - this takes about 2 hrs) and then a hydrofoil
flying dolphin or Seacat service to Alonissos - 2 hrs. This way travel could be
done for instance Sunday to Sunday or Monday to Monday. Call Alkyon Travel for
details and/or to book : 0030 210 384 3220. or 0030 210 3832545. e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.They
are very helpful. The ferry/dolphin operator's website is useful: www.dolphins.gr

Skiathos you can take the Flying Dolphin (hydrofoil) which takes one and a half
hours, depending on stops, and costs about 27 Euros return or the ferry (2-3 hrs)
