Flights from Crete to Santorini
I do not know the flight schedule for 2017 yet. The schedule below is for 2015. There were no direct flights in 2016. That may change for 2017 – or it may not.
The only direct flight from Crete to Santorini for the summer of 2015 was on Minoan Air. They had 7 flights a week from Santorini to Crete and 7 flights a week from Crete to Santorini. All flights were to and from Heraklion in Crete and used the prop plane Fokker50. Ticket fares between Crete and Santorini cost from 52,00€ up to 62,00€ (20kg baggage & 4kg carry on is included). Flights between Crete and Santorini ran from June 10 to September 21, 2015.
