Kids can fly for FREE this summer to Greece with Aegean Airlines

FAMILIES should head to Greece this summer, with one airline even letting kids fly for free.

Greek carrier Aegean Airlines is offering free child flights if travelling with at least one adult.

Kids have to be under 12, but it means a family of four could only pay for two flights to Greece this summer instead of four.

The promotion includes all UK airports, and is running from May 15 to August 31.

You have to book by May 6 to take advtantage of the deal, but could halve the cost of a holiday for families.

The only fees to pay on the child fares are airport charges, but fuel surcharges are waived.

The fares also include a 23kg checked bag as well, so you can pack your suitcase without worrying about limits.

If you need to change your flight, Aegean Airlines also have no rebooking fees, although you have to pay the difference if flights have gone up.

It is great news for Brits planning their next holiday, with Greece one of the most popular destinations during the summer season.

The UK is yet to give the go-ahead for holidays abroad but has confirmed a traffic ligt system will open up countries, hoped to be from May 17.

Only countries on the "green" list will be able to avoid quarantining when back in the UK, but will still require two Covid tests.

Some experts fear most of Europe could be left off the green list although it is hoped that up to 30 countries in the EU could make the cut.

However, Greece is already letting fully-vaccinated Brits back without having to quarantine, or those with a negative Covid test.

In Greece, nearly 70 of the smaller islands are close to being fully vaccinated, with an island travel corridor scheme suggested by Transport Secretary Grant Shapps.

Here are some of the best holiday deals for the Greek party islands this summer.

Greece could also become the "Maldives of Europe" with seaplanes connecting the islands to launch this summer – and one of the only overwater villas in Europe to welcome guests again this year.

If you don't fancy going on holiday abroad, UK trips can already go ahead, with last-minute deals from £69.
