Advice for chania flight

Hello!
We are planning our honeymoon to Greece in October!

Would like some advice and suggestion on which flight to book to Chania. We will be arriving from Toronto to Athens on September 30 @ 11am. Would it be feasible to take the SkyExpress 1:30PM flight to Chania? Or safer to buy a ticket for 5:15PM?

I see that there is an option to buy the 5:15PM flight with the most expensive option (Sky Enjoy) that includes free same day flight change...has anyone tried that for an earlier flight? How does that work?

You will have plenty of time to make the 1:30 pm flight ... All flights in October are in the main bulding, and when you get through the passport control line, you simply take the escalator up a flight to check in at Sky Express. Probably in less than an hour, even counting time to deplane from CA. Even in busy months, a 2-hr layover is fine, and y ou have 2 1/2. Relax... have Mythos beer, maybe a snack.

I think you need to go back and read the Sky Express website carefully. If you have a suitcase (and honeymooners are not traveling with a 15 lb backpack!) you will need to buy the "SKy Enjoy" level anyway... this is the ticket-rate which allows for one large bag (usually checked if the plane used is a small one, but could be carried on IF that flight uses a large jet from their fleet), Plus your small shoulder-bag carry-on. At that rate level, in the VERY unlikely instance of your missing the connection (that Toronto nonstop is 99.9% bang on time, or early), they'd immediately ask if you want to be put on next flight.
