I was going to miss my connecting flight with sky Express also and the people in the office said they couldn't help me book another flight for the next day, but that I had to wait until anthens and go their office to help me. Other people on staff were friendly though.
Pros: Not a lot of anything.
Cons: Everything. Just a really bad flight I’m general.
Pros: Never again
Cons: I had to pay extra for baggage, I had baggage on the booking, but upon booking it was only for 8 KG, and need to purchase more, The baggage cost was almost equal to the ticket, needs to be addressed on the home page, I pick with baggage and then booked the ticket, needs to show that it is not the same baggage as other flights, comparison is wrong.
Cons: Only allowed 15kgs even though we had booked for 23 on the way to Santorini. Not sure where this discrepancy occurred but had to pay for extra weight.
Pros: Crew and flight attendants were highly professional. Arrived early; short boarding time. Airport was clean and easy to navigate. Good places to dine.
Cons: The web site is difficult to navigate, including the determination of luggage pricing and seat assignments only available at check-in.
Cons: Three hours of delay for no apparent reason.
Pros: Fast flight. Nice staff onboard aircraft.
Cons: The boarding process at Milos airport is a bit slow but I guess that is to be expected in the islands.
Cons: I have never been treated so horribly by another human as I was by the boarding gate agent. My luggage was a roller board that was approved by the check-in counter to go aboard. Upon boarding the woman refused to let me board stating my bag was too large. I was charged 60 euros.
Cons: The repeatedly delayed our flight without further information, leaving us in the dark as to what was goin going on, the reason for the delay, and when the expected new time of take off is. Disappointing service. Could have been better handled by sky express staff.
Cons: Delayed and slow
Cons: Flight delayed with no notice / flight attendant rude , very bad experience
Cons: Sent the passengers but not your bags without telling us. Caused a great deal of trouble, time and anxiety as we had another international flight to catch. Would not fly them again.
Cons: After years of checking in online well before a flight with other airlines an inability to do so for this sky express flight made me nervous that something was wrong or that I would be charged a fee to check in at the airport. Ultimately everything worked out once we arrived at the counter.
Pros: Delayed 90 min and missed our connection
Pros: Quick boarding
Cons: It was terribly hot - everyone on the flight was fanning themselves with the emergency instructions and looking miserable. The individual air didn't work either. Felt like I was going to passout.
Cons: 20 min delay Crew doesn’t smile
Pros: The cabin crew was professional and helpful
Cons: If buying through Kayak, it isn't clear that SkyExpress has severe weight restrictions on luggage. You are allowed a small carry-on, but at the discounted fare, any checked baggage over 8kg is charged at 8 Euros per kg (around $4.25 per lb), which can add up to a large surcharge quickly.
Cons: Great flight, great people
Cons: Long wait and crowded Santorini airport
Missed our connecting flight due to weather and then a crew change.
Cons: Paying $600 for the next leg of our flight because of airline delay.
Didn’t get to board.
Cons: My name was listed twice on the iten. Didn’t bord.
Airport was a bit chaotic
Pros: Once on plane rest was quick
Pros: Fast check-in at counter, no line. Was invited to Sky Express lounge prior to boarding. Small plane meant a quick boarding with no issues.
Cons: Flight was 20 min late.
Pros: No pros. Will never travel with them again.
Cons: The flight was an hour late and there was NO air conditioning on the flight. It was 87 degrees on the flight and we spent almost 2 hours in that heat on the plane between the actual flight time and just sitting on the runway for an hour. Nothing was done to accommodate for the heat. I’m 5 months pregnant and felt unsafe. Everyone on the flight was suffering. It was inhumane conditions. I will NEVER fly with this company again.
Pros: I mean the flight gets you to and from...
Cons: Sky charges for every KG over 15kilos unless you have a special ticket. This option is not listed on kayak and the suggest you book thru sky. Problem is NOBODY BOOKS VIA SKY AND THEIR WEBSITE IS GARBAGE. YOU CANT EVEN CHECK IN ONLINE. The result is many rude, dismissive folks charging an extra 100 euros for something you will have no control over.
Worst airline and airport
Pros: Thankfully no extra fee for baggage, although what constitutes as carry on for another airline, they require you to check.
Cons: We were very delayed on the way leaving Mykonos and there wasn’t a single notification, update or apology. The plane had no air, was extremely hot and muggy, almost unbearable. On the other end, luggage delivery extremely delayed. Completely incompetent airline and staff. Never again.
Cons: 20 minute delay with nobody at the gate and no communication about why we were leaving late
Speak more slowly and clearly
Pros: Good service
Cons: I realize we’ve all heard the required announcements a hundred times but, if you are going to bother saying it, please speak more slowly and clearly.
Cons: Very late and hot. Unorganized.
Offering entirely domestic flights within Greece, Sky Express has become a major transport link within the Mediterranean country. Services are available to more than 30 destinations across Greece, including to a number of isolated islands such as Skyros, Zakynthos, Menos, Kos, and Astypalaia. The airline uses a primary base in Athens and a secondary hub in Heraklion to operate these flights.
Sky Express was founded in 2005 and has steadily developed a network of routes since. A codeshare agreement is in place with Blue Air, which provides customers more flexibility for services within Greece. The airline also has a partnership with Air France and KLM, aimed at improving the connectivity of Amsterdam, Paris and the Greek islands. There is a codeshare agreement with Berlin-based carrier Germania that delivers smoother links between Athens, Bremen and Nuremberg. These associations have led to a wider spread of European customers flying with the Greek airline.
An entirely turboprop fleet of aircraft is used. The propeller-powered airliners are ideal for short distance flights, with Sky Express choosing to operate both ATR and British Aerospace manufactured planes. The aircraft are able to carry between approximately 32 and 70 passengers. The ATR 42 model is one of the most commonly flown, distinguished by two six-bladed propellers and a short body.
All passengers are seated within the singular Economy cabin, meaning there is no class separation. However, fare options are offered, providing different baggage allowances and boarding priority. The SkyBasicPlus fare offers access to an executive lounge as well as flexibility should you need to change your flight.
