Direct/Non Stop Flights from North America to Greece
It used to be getting to Greece from the US or Canada required a stopover somewhere in Europe if you didn’t want to fly Olympic from New York’s JFK airport. That started to change a couple of years ago, as Delta added flights from JFK and Atlanta, and then got easier when US Airways announced non-stop service from Philadelphia to Athens. Soon US Airways was joined by Continental from Newark and now Air Canada has announced non stop service 3 days a week from Toronto and 3 days a week from Montreal to Athens Eleftherios Venizelos Airport (AIA).
So forget clearing customs in Germany or France, now you can hop the puddle and clear customs in Athens! (And sleep a little later on your last night in Athens, since unlike travelers bound for North America who must depart at the crack of dawn, the above return flights all depart for the US at very civil times.
