Getting to Paxos
Arriving in Corfu
Getting to Paxos is simple and couldn’t be easier. This year our main Monday morning Gatwick charter will be with Enterair departing at 0910 and arriving into Corfu at 1415. After arriving at Corfu Airport, one of our Planos representatives, Jilly or Janet, will be waiting for you, to direct you to the coach, minibus or taxi, which take you to the New Port.
On arrival at the ferry port, Elena will provide your tickets for the ferry and direct you to the right place. The journey to Paxos will take one to two hours depending on which vessel is used but we use the fast hydrofoils wherever possible.
Getting to Paxos
On arrival our Paxos team will be ready and waiting to greet you in the harbour. After brief introductions, we will provide you with the information on the island you need to make your stay a perfect one. We will also acquaint you with your hire vehicle (if included with your stay) and escort you to your property. The delivery of your luggage is also included with this. Exactly the same will happen in reverse on departure from Paxos where the flight back to Gatwick departs at 1540.
Panagiotis Aronis (Pano to everyone) is our Agent on Paxos who has an office in Lakka. Pano co-ordinates all our transfers and the changeover of accommodation. During the summer season we have a team of six to eight people on the island, most of whom are locals and members of the Aronis family.
In addition to this, Mary Buckley is our full-time resident Island Manager. Together with Pano, she will be looking after all your holiday needs on Paxos.
For 2021 we have contracted a certain number of air seats with Enterair for the whole season from late May to early October and the published prices on this website are based on the cost to us of these flights. Once we have sold our allocation on any date we will have to buy in seats either from sharers on the same aircraft or from other airlines operating parallel services such as Easyjet or TUI. This is almost certain to increase the overall cost of your holiday but we will discuss this with you at the time. The other implication of having to buy in from Easyjet or TUI is that they will require full payment on booking and we will look to pass this cost on to you instead of asking for our usual deposits of £150 per person.
If you would like to fly from a regional airport this year we can offer Birmingham, Bournemouth, Cardiff, East Midlands, Manchester, Newcastle and Stansted. There will most likely be regional flight supplements but we will discuss all this with you at the time. The airlines operating these regional services are Easyjet, Jet2.com and TUI and if we are required to buy in from any of these they will require full payment on booking. In that eventuality we will ask you to reimburse us for this outlay instead of charging the normal deposit of £150 per person.
Our team are always on hand throughout your stay. We encourage you to take advantage of their local knowledge to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
