Small Island, Small Airline: Bluebird TLV-KGS-TLV

Wed Sep 26, 2012 3:10 am

This is a report, pretty short one, describing a short vacation to a small Greek airline flying a small airline. Very small.

At the very last minute, I booked a package deal to the Island of Kos in Greece. For 4 nights in *** hotel, flights and transfers price was $383 US. Flights alone sold for $272. Booked at www.daka90.co.il which has good prices for last minute packages and flights, but it's service is way below standard and prices are not stable. This agency is working mostly with charter flights and small airlines, making the flights timetable usually no more than a recommendation.

It was the same this time – less than 24 hours after booking I got a call that flight back was changed from 08:50 to 14:20, bad news for me as I missed few classes, but the agreement signed with them meant I could do nothing.

Flights operated by Bluebird Airways of Greece. The airline was established in 2008, and is operating just 2 B737-400s from its base in Crete's Iraklion airport.

I arrived to TLV airport at 06:10 for the 07:50 departure to KGS. Check in, security and passport were very fast (not very busy hour) and by 06:30 I was at the airside with boarding pass to seat 4F. Good morning Ben Gurion:

Boarding was done at remote gate near Terminal 1, common practice by cheap airlines to save few cents to the Israel Airports Authority. Yet, construction at TLV airport meant that our bus drove around 10 minutes to get to the plane.

USAF C-17, probably came with an American VIP visiting Israel:

Greeted nicely at the entrance, I took my seat in 4F:

Surprisingly, legroom was pretty decent:

We push backed 6 minutes behind schedule but landed 10 minutes ahead, making a total of 1:23 hours in the air and 1:37 hours gate to gate. Tel Aviv's morning traffic, nice to see it from above for a change:




Service included drinks only:

As we approached for landing, the plane made a 360 turn to loose altitude:

With just one policeman in the non-EU passport control, it took a while for all passengers to clear immigration. I was one of the first off, therefore had to wait for the rest on the bus. Terminal external view:

Spent a nice week in the Island, including one day visit to Budrom in Turkey (we Israelis need to go there while we still can!). I stayed at the Cosmopolitan hotel in Lambi, about 1 mile from the city. It is old hotel, but well maintained in descent location:

In Turkey, any city's main street will be always named after Ataturk:

Knowing the bad blood between those 2 nations, watching so many tourists crossing in peace from Greece to Turkey and back brings hope that maybe sooner then we think it will just as easy to cross borders in my part of the world. Heading back to Greece:

On the return flight, we got to the airport 2:20 hrs prior to take off, and had to wait 20 minutes to the check in counters to open. External view, with passengers forced to stand outside because the hall was so busy:

Only god knows how this poor hall looks like in August:

When it finally opened, there was already a huge crowd and waiting time to check in was 40 minutes. Check in line:

With boarding pass to 16A, I walked some more around the airport (the arrival baggage hall has both access from outside and view of the apron) then passed security and passport control, into the tiny non-EU passenger gates:
http://imageshack.us/a/img831/3822/img1291800x600.jpg

There were passengers both to Tel Aviv and Russia, with some more seating upstairs and a small dury free shop. Boarding passes:

No, but there were numerous other operators (Vision Air, Olympic, Pan Am, Carnival, Malaysia Airlines).

Thanks for the report on an airline that I had no idea existed. I loved the non-av pictures as well.

I love these types of trip reports, keep them coming. The more far flung and exotic, the better! A trip report is just that- a trip, including pictures of the beaches and food captured the entire trip. Thanks for that!

Hi Jonathan,

Good to see another of your short trips being reported.

Quoting el-al (Thread starter):
less than 24 hours after booking I got a call that flight back was changed from 08:50 to 14:20,

That's always annoying, you pick something that suits and then it gets changed.

Quoting el-al (Thread starter):
Service included drinks only:

No hot or cold snack? OK it was a short flight but Bluebird's website suggests that for "short duration flights (up to one hour and fifteen minutes), a variety of soft drinks together with a hot or cold snack is served..."

Mind you, the same site does tells us that " a fleet renewal programme is continuously in progress enabling us to meet the expectations of our market." Hopefully they will be able to expand and avoid the end that other regional carriers have faced.

Quoting el-al (Thread starter):

With wise leaders and goodwill we can live in hope. Nice photos of both Kos and Bodrum.

I suppose that with the demands being made on Greece, there is little prospect of expanding the facilities in the short term.

Quoting el-al (Thread starter):

That is kind of her and nice that she displayed an interest in your very impressive collection. In stark contrast I notice that some airlines have taken to printing the safety info on the back of seats to reduce "walkages" and weight. Good to see Bluebird hasn't gone that way.

Thanks for sharing,

Hey Jonathan,

I knew that if we were ever to see a TR featuring BlueBird it would be by you. I swear I have seen more photos of their aircraft at TLV than any other place, even their base at HER.

Off topic, but why do all Greek airlines use shades of blue as their main color? I mean, sure, it's the color of their flag but some diversity wouldn't hurt. If anything it would make them stand out. I heard that a new Greek airline called GreenJet will be launched later in the year. Given their name, hopefully they'd not use blue for their livery...

The Kos seafront looked really nice and more green that I would have imagined. Bodrum looked nice too. The Turks really love their flag don't they?   I often make fun of how much we use the US flag here in the States but the Turks have taken it to a whole new level. I mean, a single flag on top of the castle tower would suffice. Four of them is a bit of an overkill if you ask me  

Nice of them to allow you to get a safety card. How was the service otherwise? Was the crew friendly? What was the demographic of the pax? Most of them were Israelis I take it?

Quoting el-al (Thread starter):
I got a call that flight back was changed from 08:50 to 14:20, bad news for me as I missed few classes,

How come you had to miss some classes given that the departure time moved later into the day? Unless by 8:50 you meant that the original departure was for 20:50?

Thanks for sharing,

Stojan

Quoting Quokkas (Reply 6):

Annoying indeed, in particular as I was looking on a package to Varna (Bulgaria) and didn't book it eventually because of flights time, that's why I choose Kos (which was my second choice as I was in already in Greece this year).

Quoting Quokkas (Reply 6):

Nope, only drinks. On the e-ticket it was clearly written that no food will be served on the plane. Given the economy status of Greece on the one hand and the relative success of Olympic and Aegean on the other hand, I can't really see a future to a tiny airline flying to places that work 4 months a year.

Quoting Quokkas (Reply 6):
With wise leaders and goodwill we can live in hope. Nice photos of both Kos and Bodrum.

I was thinking just the same. It is simply depressing to compare leaders like Ataturk and Venizelos to world leaders today.


Quoting Quokkas (Reply 6):
I suppose that with the demands being made on Greece, there is little prospect of expanding the facilities in the short term.

There is a problem with airports like KGS, because you need to invest a lot in a facility that will stand empty for 8 months every year. It's a known problem with seasonal holiday destinations airports.

It was on the return leg, I had classes from 12:00 to 21:30, I was due to land at 10:20, giving my enough time to made it on time, but since I landed at 15:45, I got to class only at 16:30.

Quoting Widebodyroga (Reply 7):

Aegean, now Greece's biggest, doesn't. But yeah, it has to do with the color of the flag and most of all, the sea. Blue/white is a very catchy combo that matches the "Greek scenery" (Aegean islands) that most foreigners have in mind when thinking of Greece.

Not realy but definitely not killing each other at the moment.

That and the Ataturk portrait. I noticed that too when I visited Antalya.

Aegean, now Greece's biggest, doesn't.

The gray belly and the thin red cheatline doesn't make them non-blue :p Their logo, website, interiors and pretty much everything else is blue. And despite the simplicity of this concept I have to say that I like it, don't get me wrong. I just think that in terms of marketing and "recognize-ability" a color other than blue may be helpful. But then again I'm not an expert in the field.   

But since we are on the topic, despite the terrible state of its economy, a bunch of new airlines have recently sprang out of Greece: Minoan, GreenJet, Hellas Airlines. Quite interesting. It hasn't been that long ago that the Imperial Hellenic Airlines, Viking Hellas and Athens airlines went bust. And like Jonathan mentioned, it's a wonder how BlueBird stays afloat during the off-season.

Hi Jonathan,

Thank you for the insite on this airline we dont see all to much here. They seem to be doing good business as the flight loads were close to full both ways and always nice to get a free drink!
Love your destination pictures too, good stuff!

cheers,

Brendan

LOL! I have both Israeli and Lebanese family members. I once said "Koos Emok" in front of them and they all nearly fell off their chairs. I didn't realize that it's both a Hebrew and Arabic curse!
