During a press conference held yesterday, it was stated that Rhodes officials are very close in signing a deal with a low-cost carrier (not Ryanair) for the immediate commencement of winter flights.
This was great news following the disappointment and frustration caused by Ryanair and Arkia withdrawals for the winter period.

Low-cost carrier Easyjet is to offer passengers in-flight entertainment for the first time, with personal TVs available on selected flights for £7.50.
We sure hope that the service will succeed and expand covering Rhodes flights from the UK.
