21SEP2021 / 1400Z - The Crete Send Off @ LGIR [CLOSED]

The Crete Send Off - 21st September 2021 from 1400Z

The summer is drawing to a close, it’s been a massive success, and that’s thanks to the progressions made with vaccines, testing and travel traffic lights!

This year in Greece, Air Traffic has reportedly surged by 146% during the first half of 2021, compared to pre-Pandemic times!

Let’s enjoy the scenic views!

You can either fly in to Heraklion (LGIR) or out, giving the customers and Greece, the send off it deserves at this beautiful Greek island in the Sea of Crete! before we head into winter, and we get the interesting and breathtaking approaches into Innsbruck, Geneva, Chambery etc.
