Kαλο μίνα με υγεια. Good month with health.

It has been a beautiful day here but the temperature first thing was 1° C and we had a frost. I get concerned when I see things in bud or even in flower, like our banksia rose, knowing that the severe weather we can get could kill the buds. Here, winter is yet to come!

Happy Feb 2023 everyone.  Summer is on its way. (Hopefully!) ;D


We spotted hazelnut catkins 28Dec22 this season, quite early and since we now have buds on every type of tree and the canopy of the woods here is changing hue. Certainly is looking like winter is over, but does not feel like it at all.... :o

The Athens to London flight is not affected so they wouldn't refund that anyway and there has been a voucher refund for the Corfu/Athens part of the journey. I have read that some are taking the bus from Corfu to Athens and vice versa.

Maybe more unfair than odd, passengers losing money.

From the above link...

Runway construction works at Corfu Airport "Ioannis Kapodistrias"
As part of the project to further upgrade the regional airports, Fraport Greece, the Operator of Corfu Airport "Ioannis Kapodistrias" will proceed with the reconstruction of the airport's runway.
21.12.2022
Specifically, for the period from the 10th of January 2023 to the 24th of January 2023 & the 8th of February 2023 to the 22nd of February 2023, the operation of the runway will be suspended. During the above periods, only ambulance helicopters will operate, if necessary, while all other airport services within the terminal, will be available to the interested public.

The above works concern the complete reconstruction of the runway at Corfu Airport "Ioannis Kapodistrias", aiming to further enhance the level of safety at the airport. This project will result in the ability to handle not only larger aircraft types, but also an increased number of flights.

These works form part of the Concession Agreement. They are also carried out in terms of sustainability and respect for the land, since supporting sustainable development and social responsibility are Fraport Greece’s key principles.

The runway’s suspension of operation is absolutely necessary due to the size and complexity of the project, the physiology of the ground and the surrounding area. Nevertheless, and according to the design, the specified intervals are the shortest possible period during which the runway can be suspended.

Regulatory compliance and safety, at all levels, are key priorities for the company. It is worth noting that these works are part of a broader plan to further upgrade the already high level of safety and operation of the 14 regional airports managed by Fraport Greece. As mentioned above, they are related to large-scale projects to be executed by the company, as part of the Recovery and Resilience Fund financing.

No planes seem to be flying from 8th to around 22 Feb in or out of
Corfu Airport. All very odd. Sky express will only refund (a voucher!) on her 16th Feb  flight corfu to Athens but will not pay for the Athens to London flight by Aegean nor would the insurance company.
