We had a direct flight from Manchester, England to Santorini with XL, taking just under 4 hours. Santorini has a small airport located near Monolithos, not from from the end of Kamari beach where the planes fly over to land. Space is limited in the departure lounges, there is an outdoor lounge upstairs where you can view the planes landing and taking off. There is a small tax free/duty free shop and a couple of bars for snacks and drinks. Several times we found no running water in he toilets so a pack of wet ones might be handy.
With the flight we flew over so many of the nearby islands and had great views with our day time flight. Managed a couple of shots as we approached looking down onto Fira and even our own village Katerados - we could even make out the hotel on it!
