Hello,

I had just connected from Munich for this domestic flight to the island of Mykonos.

Our aircraft today was an Airbus A320 in Star Alliance colours and boarding started a little bit late.

I took my nice window seat and had this view of our Aegean neighbour:

Boarding music played and a welcome candy was distributed which is a very nice and uncommon routine for Economy Class.

Boarding finished quickly in the end, a safety video was shown on the drop down screens and we took off after a short taxi.

The flight time of this domestic hop was only 20 minutes - the shortest flight I ever took!

Despite the extremely short flight time Aegean Airlines still managed to provide a great inflight service perfectly adequate for this short flight time.
3 minutes after take off the very friendly flight attendants distributed a nice Greek nut and honey snack and a refreshing towel.

I enjoyed this snack while having some great views of different Aegean islands.



Soon we were approaching island of Mykonos and landed ahead of time on this very small airport.



The airport is located on a big hill and after the landing the plane has to turn on the runway and roll back to the parking apron as there is no separate taxiway.

We parked directly in front of the very small and very old terminal building and walked from the aircraft to the baggage reclaim area in very nice and warm afternoon sun.

    Thanks for this FR.
    Domestic flights in Greece are great for views as they're so short the aircraft doesn't really climb.
    It's very nice of A3 to provide a little something when they could take the flight's very short duration as an excuse.
