How to Reach Catania with Cheap Flights to Catania
With all its ancient architecture and wonders of art accumulated over the course of more than 3 millennia of history, not forgetting its beautiful coastlines, and the many pristine nature parks and species of rare Mediterranean flora and fauna around the island, it is no wonder that Sicily (along with its Aeolian and Egadian archipelagos) is one of the preferred destinations for tourists worldwide. The Fontanarossa Airport of Catania is the main centre of arrival for the majority of visitors due to the city’s strategic location (on the East coast), which makes it easier to reach all the best spots around the coast and in the mainland including the lovely town of Taormina, Messina, Mt. Etna, Syracuse and the Val di Noto in the South, and the Agrigento coast in the West. Here are some suggestions on the best resources where you can easily find excellent deals for flights to Catania, Sicily.
Right now Google has a couple of very convenient deals for the month of May, with cheap flights to Catania, Sicily (Fontanarossa Airport) from London, UK (all airports) starting at E79 round-trip (from London Gatwick), direct flight (3 h 15 min), with Norwegian Air International for a 9 day stay. For a 7-day stay the price goes up to E91 with the same specifications. For UK travellers deals like these are very convenient, and the price range reflects the fact that Sicily is one of the top holiday destinations for British tourists who may also like to spend a 3-day weekend there.
Another alternative for cheap flights to Sicily (Catania) is Tripadvisor, although slightly more pricey it does have advantageous holiday packages like a round-trip flight from London’s Heathrow with Alitalia and a 7-night stay at the Mercure Catania Excelsior- all included at the price of E956. Otherwise the cost for a single round-trip is in the range of E147 from London’s Heathrow, with Alitalia, and includes connecting flights- although it is slightly cheaper than Expedia which ranges E157 and up. Lat on the list would be lastminute.com, with limited offers starting at £138 (E174.8) for a one-week, round trip starting in May with Alitalia, but it is slightly more expensive and the flight time is over 7 hours.
