Karpathos Transportation: 2 reviews and 0 photos

I flew back to Rhodes with Olympic in one of their flying coffins. Huge fun!

The airport has been improved since then, but at the time you took off directly into the mountains and the pilot twisted and turned his way upwards through the valleys and gorges. In such a small plane you can see out both sides, so it was scareeee...

PS "flying coffin" is Scottish-speak for small island hopping planes, and not derogating Olympic Airlines (they've always been good to me!)
