We are attempting to book our flights to Greece (June 23-July 8) and the ticket prices are MUCH higher than when we looked several months ago. While this wasn't too much of a surprise, we have been considering some options to reduce the price. Our plan is to start our trip in Santorini and finish in Athens.
We are considering an Air Canada flight from Seattle to Athens then flying Sky Express from Athens to Santorini. Due to the landing time of the Air Canada flight the extra leg to Santorini via Aegean is either several hundred dollars more or a several hour layover. Does anyone have experience doing something similar? Since our connecting flight will come from Canada, not the EU, will they make us go through customs in Athens before boarding our flight to Santorini on a different ticket?
Thanks in advance for the advice!
