We flew to Rhodes with one suitcase each, (non overweight) but when we arrived at the airport only 1/5 of passengers received their luggage. They informed us that they would been carried to Athens and from there, with the night flight they would reach to us as it really happened. So we arrived at 13:00 in Rhodes and a taxi...

We had an awful experience with Sky Express. Our flight was due to leave at 12pm. It was eventually cancelled, and we had to get on a night flight. Ended up arriving in Santorini so late, the hotel had given our room away, and we had to stay at another hortel. No compensation from airline. Awful when you consider it...

We flew to Santorini and back from Athens. The invitation to visit the Sky Lounge in Athens was very welcome and we gratefully enjoyed the refreshments on offer. Both flights were enjoyable. We were given a candy on the way to Santorini but not on the way back. The flight attendant on each flight carried out her duties efficiently. Both...

Athens to Santorini and back in a turboprop ATR. The flights left on time and arrived on time without an incident.Our ticket included a lounge visit in Athens airport. The lounge was rather simple with limited selection of sandwiches and drinks, it was still better than sitting on a bench in the terminal. Because these were short flights, no drink...

After reading all the bad reviews about Sky Express I was having doubts about using them but with the price we had paid and the time it took, ferries weren't an option. I am really glad we used them, from check in to arrival in Corfu the whole experience was brilliant, we had never been on a small plane before...

We were hesitant booking with Sky Express due to all the bad reviews but due to the time of year we only had two airlines to choose from and they were most convenient for us. We were so incredibly surprised how great our flights and the free sky lounge was! We had a free breakfast and lounge at athens airport,...

Never has any airline been so brash in looting passengers on excess luggage. Cost is 6 euros a kg. Yes it is insane. Not like the tickets were cheap in the first place, and then this absurdity. Shame on the carrier. Oh and best part? I tried purchasing excess baggage earlier - there is no option to do it! No...

We were nearly stranded in Santorini with this Airline. We had confirmed booking and E tickets when we were informed we had no reservations at check in and denied passage. It was only on the final flight of the day that due to 2 passengers no show that they finally relented and allowed us to board. We will never fly...

This flight was definitely above my expectation. I'll be honest I was terrified going into this flight being it was a smaller plane & the first time I'd been on a propeller airplane. I was traveling from the US for the first time to Greece & we used Sky Express for our flight from Santorini back to Athens. The flight...

Not very impressed with this airlines. Both flights to and from santorini were extremely hot. Waited in long and confusing lines in santorini. Very limited luggage room on the flight so large bags must be checked. They were also very strict about weight limits.
