Re: Ryan air annouces

So sorry ... but I don't agree with you all on this one ... the flights are really cheap from the UK to Turkey now, for example ...

Gatwick to Antalya is 93 return from 12th to 20th April direct on Thomas Cook Airlines ... OR ... 83 return from 26th April to 9th May ...

And on the Gatwick to Bodrum route ... 114 return from 29th April to 12th May going out on EasyJet direct and returning on Thomas Cook Airlines direct ... OR ... 161 return from 14th to 22nd May direct both ways on Thomas Cook Airlines ...

And on the Gatwick to Dalaman route ... 93 return from 16th to 27th April direct both ways on Thomas Cook Airlines ... OR ... 93 return from 24th April to 10th May on Thomas Cook Airlines direct both ways ...

Also on the Gatwick to Izmir route ... 98 return from 10th to 21st April direct both ways on EasyJet ... OR ... 99 return from 17th April to 3rd May going there direct on EasyJet and returning direct on Thomas Cook Airlines ...

Then on Gatwick to Istanbul route ... 290 return from 21st March to 7th April direct both ways on Turkish Airlines ...127 return from 28th April to 9th May direct both ways on Turkish Airlines ... 108 return from 9th to 23rd May direct both ways on Turkish Airlines ...124 return from 21st May to 5th June direct both ways on Turkish Airlines ...

Flying from Antalya Airport to Istanbul cost us 16 each return 2 years ago and today the fares are not much higher, for example ... 22 return from 26th September to 10th October direct both ways on Sun Express ... OR ... 35 return from 11th to 24th April direct both ways on Pegasus Airlines ... OR ... 29 return from 17th to 29th May direct both ways on Sun Express ...

One of the nicest, cutest small bed and breakfast hotels in Istanbul is where we always stay... hotel El Blanco only has 12 rooms and costs 42 per person per night bed and breakfast and you will get 10% off all your food and drinks there if you are staying at El Blanco Hotel which is only a 5 minute walk from the Blue Mosque and most of the other Istanbul sites ...

In case you don't know ... all Turkish Airlines flights offer 20 kgs of free checked baggage as well as free food and drinks on board their flights ...

Yes flights are only good if it's no where either side of varying school holidays then you are looking at almost 600 for a return ticket. Very unfair.

Re: Ryan air annouces

Yes Shash, of course the cost of flights goes up in every school holiday but not by that much really. Funnily enough just last week my brother, his wife and 11 year old son Max contacted me to see if they could come to see me in Side, Turkey during their school holidays. Max is at a private school in Esher, Surrey so the dates shown below may not totally coincide with your children's school holidays but near enough in any case, see my reply to them below ... and costs of flights from Gatwick to Antalya per person return IN THE SCHOOL HOLIDAYS ...

Term Ends - Friday 23 March 2018
Summer Term 2018 - Term Begins on Tuesday 17 April 2018
May Day Holiday - Monday 7 May 2018
Half Term Begins - Friday 25 May 2018
Term Recommences - Monday 4 June 2018
Summer Meeting - Saturday 7 July 2018 (Compulsory School Half Day)
Term Ends - Tuesday 10 July 2018
Autumn Term 2018 - New Staff Induction - Friday 31 August
Staff INSET Days - Monday 3 September and Tuesday 4 September
New Pupil Induction (Senior School only) - Wednesday 5 September 2018
Term Begins - Thursday 6 September 2018
Half Term Begins - Friday 12 October 2018
Term Recommences - Monday 29 October 2018
Term Ends - Thursday 13 December 2018

Spring Term 2019 - Staff INSET - Wednesday 2 January
Term Begins - Thursday 3 January
Half Term Begins - Friday 15 February
Term Recommences - Monday 25 February
Term Ends - Wednesday 3 April
Summer Term 2019 - Staff INSET - Tuesday 23 April
Term Begins - Wednesday 24 April
May Day Holiday - Monday 6 May
Half Term Begins - Friday 24 May
Term Recommences - Monday 3 June
Summer Meeting - Saturday 29 June (compulsory school half-day)
Term Ends - Thursday 4 July

So, the best flights from Gatwick to Antalya during those holidays would be ...

(1) 473 return from 26th May to 3rd June 2018.
(2) 361 return from 12th July to 29th August 2018.
(3) 344 return from 14th to 28th July 2018.

Re: Ryan air annouces

No, not Milbourne School Steve ... Max goes to Claremont in Esher ... see link here ... Claremont Fan Court School - Home It is just next to where George Harrison, the Beatle was living when he sadly passed away. Did you know that the doctor who was with him as he was dying asked him for his autograph? What a dreadful thing to do eh? ... Angela ... PS ..Yes it is an expensive school but Max's Dad, my brother Paul, owns a pharmaceutical company with branches all over the world. He is not short of a penny or two! Do you know what his biggest selling product is? Take a guess .... No, not Viagra .... No, not Aspirin .... No, not Paracetomol ... Ok, do you give up now? Well, you know the small plastic see-through containers that you put your pee and poo in when you take a sample to the doctors? Paul sells thousands of those each year and makes the most profit on them than any other item he sells. Of course they cannot be re-used, so I guess when you think about it, it does make sense. ...

Re: Ryan air annouces

I know fan court Angela , I think it used to be a ladies only school when I visited .

The house George Harrison had , I had the pleasure to visit when owned by a Gentleman named Reid ( spelling ) , he was Elton's manager , we were shown the Indian graphic painted on the wall through a huge circular window that took up a whole wall. It was viewed alongside a pale blue grand piano , spectacular . I do believe it is now a protected installation .

Memories Angela , thanks for prodding my memory .

Regards , Steve

Thanks Angela yes I see they've come down a bit since I last looked. I just checked Luton and they're down as well. But I still consider 450 is a lot for kids.

Re: Ryan air annouces

Plus flying from north and south of Ireland we have connecting flights to purchase also. On our return trip we have to stay overnight in Edinburgh also. All adds to an expensive trip!
