This flight report covers my trip to Rhodes Island, Greece.
My schoolmate and my best friend called me few days before flight. He asked me If I want to join in to a vacation in Rhodes, Greece. As I needed some brake from school and I wanted to fly again (My last trip was to Vienna, Austria in March 2015), I agreed to join. Flights cost 390$ per 2 directions. In my opnion, it's pretty expensive for 1.5 hour flight. Sometimes you can find flights on this route for 140$. We were staying 4 nights at Atlantica Aegean Hotel (5*) that located near Kolympia, half an hour from RHO Airport. We hadn't payed for our staying in the Hotel because we're VIP guests of the Hotel, As a result our vacation was pretty cheap.
Our Flights: Tel Aviv (TLV) -> Rhodes (RHO) LY5033 B738 (You're Here!) Rhodes (RHO) -> Tel Aviv (TLV) BZ761 B734
We arrived to the duty-free area after check-in, Passport Control and the security checks. I decided to spot on some planes: Turkish Airlines Airbus A330-300 and United Boeing 777-200ER:
EgyptAir Express (formarly Air Sinai) Embaraer 170, Easyjet Airbus A320, Norwegian Boeing 737-800 and Transavia Boeing 737-800 as well.
As I had free time before boarding I decided to visit in Dan Lounge:
Time to go to Our plane! Boeing 737-800, 4X-EKI, EX-1999. Wing view and you can see the new E-Gates that are building right now!
Our plane appeared on flightradar24:
Blue Bird Airways Boeing 737-400, SX-TZE:
Uzbekistan Airways Boeing 767-300 touched down on runway 26:
Take off from Runway 26:
TLV Airport after departure:
The service started 15 minutes after departure. Every passenger got a snack and a bottle of water. In my opnion, It's enough for 1h20m flight time.
Descent to Rhodes:
2 B738: A Transaero's one and an El Al's one:
The passport control passed quickly as we're the first on the line, and our baggage arrived quickly. We went to our driver and after half an hour we arrived to our hotel.
Thanks for reading!
