For the summer of 2014, Detur is expanding its programme with a new destination – the Greek island of Crete – although it is not the first time Crete has been on Detur’s programme. The destination was among Detur’s offerings when it launched operations in Sweden in 2000. Swedes have already taken this holiday favourite to their hearts, and many keep returning again and again.
“It is really great that we can provide both old and new customers this destination, which is both old and new. We have chosen nice hotels in popular areas for our programme, and we are also the only ones to offer travel to Crete from Åre Östersund Airport,” says Staffan Jansson, sales and marketing manager at Detur Sweden.
“We welcome Detur’s investment in travel to Crete from Åre Östersund Airport, which will be appreciated in the region. Flying non-stop from one’s home airport is very popular and in great demand,” says Susanne Norman, airport director.
Detur will fly non-stop to Chania Airport from Åre Östersund during the first half of the 2014 summer season, May 10–June 14.
To the west of Chania, in the towns of Platanias, Agia Marina, Kato Stalos and Gerani, Detur offers a wide range of hotels, everything from five-star hotels to more basic holiday flats. It also offers an exciting programme with excursions and experiences, including classics like the Samaria Gorge, but also much more.
Detur’s Crete in brief
Follow along with Detur to Crete – the perfect holiday island with wonderful beaches that stretch for miles and a variety of natural surroundings. Greece’s largest island has much to offer, with its different natural settings, sparkling bays, exciting rock caves and its warm, inviting people. Greek salads, tzatziki and other delicacies are served in large quantities, and with pleasant swimming temperatures until late autumn, it is not hard to understand why Greece is such a popular destination.
Chania is the second largest city in Crete, with some 60,000 inhabitants, and Detur will operate out of Chania Airport. Detur’s hotels are located along the endless beaches stretching to the west of Chania. There are many holiday resorts there where you will find our hotels, such as Platanias, Agia Marina, Kato Stalos and Gerani.
