Flying Cat 4 ...

The three mayors have returned from Athens ...

On Monday the three mayors of the Sporades and the Hotel associations of Skopelos and Alonissos were in Athens. They were making representations after learning, that Flying Cat 4 this year will not be travelling between the Sporades and Thessaloniki.

'The vice/president of Hellenic Seaways Mr. Agapitos has made it clear in the meeting that Hellenic Seaways did not make money with this route, and therefore the service is cancelled'

A wasted and expensive journey, perhaps a conference call would have been a better option ...

Quite ironic really as Hellenic are not operating anything on the Sporades route at the moment either. The flying Cats are tucked up in Piraeus for the winter, and so is the Express Skiathos for winter maintenance.

However Hellenic are still prepared to offer free travel to the mainland for those in financial difficulty. This again being negotiated by the 'Skiathos cultural association' and well done to Teo Tzoumas for that ...

Seacats may yet step in, with a service from the Sporades to Thessaloniki, but at this stage probably unlikely in time for a service to operate in 2018
