We have heard that the Ryanair twice weekly UK flight may be cancelled due to lack of support in Corfu from the Local Authority and Chamber of Commerce, even though many of the flights are already apparently well booked. We feel that this flight is of great importance to the Corfu business community and should be considered by the authorities in Corfu as a matter of urgency. Benefits include not only travel for local residents of all nationalities, but will establish Corfu as a serious year round destination, encouraging investors who are not prepared to invest in a ‘six months of the year’ proposition. Corfu is an excellent ‘short break’ destination from northern Europe, and this flight could be the beginning of an expansion of our decreasing tourism industry, in all aspects of tourism.
We urge both the Corfu Local Authority and Chamber of Commerce to take immediate action to secure this winter flight schedule.
You can email the Chamber of Commerce & the local authority with you mail marked For the attention of Mr. Kaloudis, President of the Tourism Committee, Chamber of Commerce.
You can also contact the Corfu Municipality where you can register your point – they also have a Facebook page where comments could be added. I think many private people will make their point on FB, but business people need to make a formal point to the relevant authorities, since they are supposed to represent our interests.
