  1. Re; Arrival back of Ryanair serving Chania to Athens and Salonica
    I have been scanning arrival/departures from Chania airport in the last week. I was suprised to see that Ryanair have had the ”Brass Neck” to return to serve the people of Western Crete. I understood that Ryanair were told by the people of Western Crete not to come back as the people had got a very reliable alternative air service in the form of ”SKY EXPRESS’
    who have not let down the passengers from Western Crete as Ryanair did in leaving passengers without Winter Service.
    The people have told Ryanair that they must go and not come back as they want a year round service on whom they could depend where Sky Express fulfills their requirement in full.
