Funen residents can now fly direct on autumn holidays from Odense to Rhodes

This autumn, Funen residents now have the opportunity to fly directly to the popular Greek holiday island of Rhodes. For the first time, Spies is offering a direct charter departure from HCA Airport to Rhodes during the school autumn holidays.

Travellers from Funen can now warm themselves with the thought that this autumn it will be possible to fly to warmer climes to the Greek holiday island of Rhodes with Spies, which offers a direct departure from HCA Airport in week 42.

- It's great that, in collaboration with Spies, we can now offer a popular week 42 destination with the departure to Rhodes, which fits well into our charter programme," says Hans Okholm Vejrup, CEO of HCA Airport. 

Guests want 4 stars and private pool access for young and old: Spies upgrades

On the south-eastern Greek island of Rhodes, where the October weather is stable and warm, Spies has just expanded its most popular family hotel, Sunwing Kallithea Beach, with even more rooms with direct pool access and a brand new pool lounge. This is due to the fact that in recent years, after the world reopened after the coronavirus, Danes have spent even more money on their holidays and have even higher expectations for their hotels. Sofie Folden Lund, Head of Communications at Spies, says:

- We're seeing an increased demand for +4 star hotels and especially for rooms with direct pool access. The ability to meet friends by the communal pool and snorkel on the beautiful beach at Kallithea - but also to retreat and just plop straight into the pool from your room appeals to many. That's why we've expanded with even more direct pool access. And as something completely new - also splash pools for the mindset.

Sofie Folden Lund explains that as something completely new, a number of "Happy Baby" living room apartments have also been created for the hotel's youngest guests with direct pool access to the so-called splash pools, which are low splash pools with shade sails above. This allows toddlers to swim while parents sit on the edge with their feet in the pool and keep an eye on them.

- We have launched "Happy Baby Splash Pool" as a special offer for families with very young children, and it is already a resounding success for our youngest guests and their parents. So it's definitely here to stay - and we hope that "Happy Baby Splash Pool" will also bring joy to the youngest Funen residents who travel with us to Rhodes during the autumn holidays," says Sofie Lund, Head of Communications at Spies.

In addition to the departure to Rhodes, Spies offers several direct flights from Odense to Mallorca between 25 June and 23 July.
