We are looking at 2 options, air and ferry one-way from Naxos to Athens in September. Bluestar show a fare of 30.5 Euros tax in (so it appears at end of the last booking screen) versus the 70 Euro Full Flex Economy fare (incl all taxes) on Olympic. Of course by ferry it will take a goodly 5 plus hours versus 45 minutes by air. Given Olympic are using a Dash 8 (the site does not say which version) we are wondering (1) will the airfare start showing up at some point for cheaper economy or economy restricted fares (2) is there heavy demand on that flight from Naxos to Athens - if so and if the plane is a small Dash 8 should we book now to secure a seat? and finally (3) is 30.5 Euros (with assumed tax) about as good a ferry fare as we will get?
Hoping some Naxos posters can give us some thoughts on this.Edited: 9:51 pm, March 16, 2010
