Let’s take a look.

Valid for travel through the fall, you’ll be able to use this deal to get 50% off for up to 8 children on a single booking:

  • Valid for travel between May 2, 2023, to October 31, 2023
  • Book by March 21, 2023
  • Base fare is 50% off for children up to age 11, but you’ll still need to pay airport fees
  • Valid for up to 8 children with at least 1 adult
  • Use promo code at booking: FAMILYEXTRAS 
  • Valid for both economy class travel
  • Includes a 50% discount on an extra checked bag
  • Includes a 30% discount on seat selection
  • Includes a 30% discount on fast track through airport security

On top of all of that, you’ll be able to earn double bonus miles on all your flights.

Is It Worth It?

If you were already planning on traveling to or within Greece with your children, this deal represents an excellent value. This is especially true for larger families. Although you’re still on the hook for airport fees, being able to bring your entire family with a 50% discount can save you tons of money.

Aegean doesn’t offer nonstop flights to the U.S., but it does offer excellent connections throughout Europe and the Middle East. It also operates flights to Toronto (YYZ), which is easily accessible with positioning flights.

The best part about this deal is that you’re flying with a full-service carrier, which means you’ll be able to credit your flights to Star Alliance partners such as United MileagePlus or Air Canada Aeroplan. If you have elite status with one of these carriers, you’ll also be able to take advantage of reciprocal benefits, such as an additional free checked bag and priority boarding.

For instance, let’s say you’re booking round-trip flights from Athens (ATH) to Santorini (JTR) during peak summer, for 2 adults and 4 children. Normally, this would cost almost $1,000.
