Ok. Now that you educated yourself on the basics, let’s look into the direct flights from London to Mykonos.
London to Mykonos – Easyjet Direct Flights
Easyjet flies from Luton (LTN) London, to Mykonos JMK airport, with a non-stop direct flight, which takes 4 hours and starts at 160 GBP including the return. Here is an example of an Easyjet flight from Luton to Mykonos and return from Mykonos to Gatwick:
London to Mykonos – British Airways
If you don’t like low-budget airlines and you prefer to fly with British Airways, BA offers a nonstop flight from Heathrow to Mykonos and the return is to London City. Again, the flight time from London to Mykonos is 4 hours and the ticket (including the return) is around 270 GBPs.
Easyjet is the only airline company that starts the non-stop flights early in the season, starting from April British Airways doesn’t fly directly to Mykonos from London during April and May.
Easyjet – Jet2 Combo Flight to Mykonos from London
You can also get a ticket that combines an Easyjet flight with a Jet2 non-stop flight from London to Mykonos. Again a 4 hours flight and around 210 GBPs for a both-ways ticket.
How to get to Mykonos from London – November to April
During this period, which is the low season in Mykonos (it’s winter time and the sea is pretty cold to swim), you only find a non-stop flight from London to Mykonos with Easyjet. It flies from Gatwick (LGW) to Mykonos in 4 hours and the ticket is at 130 GBP (including the return).
How to get to Mykonos from London, with a flight to Athens and then a ferry from Athens to Mykonos
You can find very cheap airtickets from London to Athens almost every month of the year. And there is always a ferry connecting the two ports of Athens (Piraeus port and Rafina port), with Mykonos. The ferry time from Athens to Mykonos is around 5 hours with the slow ferry (available all year round) or even 2 hours with the fast ferry (available only during the peak months). Costs of the ferry tickets vary from 30 euros to 60 euros per person for one way. So, it doesn’t make sense to get this option, instead of flying directly (or with a one-stop) from London to Mykonos, unless you want to spend a couple of days to see Athens.
What about Ryanair and Volotea? Do they fly from London to Mykonos?
Ryanair and Volotea don’t fly directly from London to Mykonos, not even during the peak season. They offer a one-stop flight from London to Mykonos. It doesn’t really make sense to get these options, as you can find a direct flight from London to Mykonos with Easyjet or British airways.
Cheapest way to get to Mykonos from London
The cheapest price you can find for a return flight ticket from London to Mykonos is with Easyjet, for around 100 GBP during the low season (April).
The cheapest price you can find for a return flight from London to Mykonos during the peak season (July and August) is again with Easyjet at around 150 GBP per person.
