It’s All Greek For The New BA Route to Skiathos

Published on : Tuesday, June 27, 2017

To celebrate the inaugural British Airways flight to Skiathos, London’s first all-female barber shop chorus entertained everyone with songs from the film, including Dancing Queen, Money, Money, Money and Waterloo.



Film-goers will recognise Skiathos, part of the Sporades archipelago in the Aegean Sea, as the fictitious island of Kalokairi, the setting for Mamma Mia!



Now travellers can see the island for themselves using the new three-times-a-week British Airways flights from London City. As well as its famous film connection Skiathos is favoured by tourists for its many pine forests and over 60 beaches.



It is the third Greek Island route, alongside Mykonos and Santorini, that British Airways flies to direct from London City Airport and it is the only scheduled service from the UK to Skiathos.



Flights will operate during the peak summer weeks until September.


The aptly named London City Singers was formed in 2007 with a group of just seven ladies. The chorus now has around 30 members who sing a cappella four-part harmony, arranged in the barbershop style.



Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ general manager customer and commercial, said: “After the release of the hugely popular Mamma Mia! film, Skiathos became one of the most sought after holiday destinations. It sits perfectly with our other Greek Island routes and gives our customers at London City the chance to put themselves in the picture.”
