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.

How does a little girl from Skokie, Illinois find herself in historical Athens, leading curious explorers through the winding streets of Plaka, down "pezodromos" to hidden ouzeries for tempting mezedhes and homemade barrel wine? The journey began more than twenty years ago, and regardless of whether the wanderlust comes from the spiritual and culture DNA flowing through my veins, or the alignment of the stars on that cold mid-December day this Sagitterian came into the world, I never seem to tire of exploring my adopted homeland of Greece. Here you'll join me as I explore Athens: be it the back streets of Psirri and Gazi, or through the National Gardens and Zappeio where a family of turtles makes their home, or down wide, treelined Imittou Street in Pagrati, which pulses with Athenian life 24 hours a day. And while Athens has stolen my heart, the rest of Greece vies for my curiousity and wanderlust. My two guys (that'd be the Greek God, Vasilis and our Greek dog, Scruffy) and I can often be found settling in for a long weekend in some charming mountain village, or a quaint fishing port on a nearby island, or learning how Greek vitners are producing wines that rival some of Napa Valley's finests productions, or celebrating a panayeri in Epirus or sharing in the festivities as a family of Cretan sheepherders come together to sheer their 1500 sheep in the spring ... And if you happen to find yourself heading to Athens, consider finding yourself a real home for your stay. Living amongst the locals, be it for 3 nights or 3 weeks, will offer you the chance to experience true Athens, beyond the Acropolis. Choose from one of our 5 beautiful penthouse and historical homes, and who knows, I may be leading you down that winding "pezodromo" to our favorite hidden ouzerie!
