The new flight season has started

Scheduled international flights have resumed at Rhodes Airport after the usual winter break. The first was a Ryanair flight on Sunday 26 March from East Midlands.

However there are yet more changes to the planned summer flight programme for Rhodes and Kos.
Aegean has slightly increased the domestic flights between Rhodes and Athens, and these are all operated on Aegean A320 or A321 aircraft, despite being marketed as Olympic Air under the new policy of using the Olympic brand for flights within Greece and the Aegean brand for international flights. However the Aegean St Petersburg flights for summer 2017 have all been cancelled.
Olympic will still be operating the “Dodecanese local” flights between Rhodes and Kastellorizo and between Rhodes, Kos, Kalymnos, Leros, and Astypalea this summer, despite the government waiting until the day after the old contract expired to issue a new one for the latter route.

Today Brussels Airlines has announced it is taking over the flight operations of Thomas Cook Belgium. Two A320 aircraft and all the pilots and cabin crews will transfer, the other three aircraft will move to other Thomas Cook Group airlines.
The implementation date has yet to be made public, so the flight tables linked to below still show Thomas Cook as the operator. The package holiday business in Belgium continues, just with a different flight provider going forward.
