I'm having a tentative look but will only go if works for the family, and at the moment it looks like the flights really don't look good in that regard. From LHR or LGW I can only see a Monarch flight direct that ends up coming back at 11pm, which is far from ideal with a 3yr old and a long drive back to home.

Do you think there will be more flights released later in the year or early next year? I'm surprised at the lack of choice considering the destination. Confused

Even EasyJet who committed to announcing their schedules earlier haven't released their Summer 2018 schedules yet! Give it a few weeks!

I'm looking for flights for my training camp in Lanza in March. Discovered something interesting that might be of interest to others.

So I am 6'5'' and taking my own bike. With Ryanair from Luton by the time I have added priority boarding, extra leg room, my bike and and checked luggage it comes out at 315.

If fly BA from Gatwick for 311 I can go business class. That gives me 2x32Kg bags and a you can use that towards a bike. Plus a carry on bag. Only problem is the times are not as good.

Might be the same for IM Lanza also.

Remember to get the full baggage allowance on BA, you only need to fly business one way, flying on the way back is almost always cheaper (the holiday destination lounges are generally #@?#, so cheaper than what the LHR / LGW lounges would have to give)

Flights booked with Easy Jet. As soon as Easy Jet released their schedule, the Monarch prices seemed to go up by a lot!

Fly out on the Wednesday, fly home following Wednesday.

It'll be great this time - travelling with my wife, my children and my parents.

Now, where did I put that turbo trainer... ?

I'm in for this one too Very Happy. Flying Easyjet Weds-Weds, just need to find some accommodation to keep the family happy.

Ozzie1973, I live close to Swindon so if you fancy some company on a long ride or run at some point give me a shout Smile.

Do you guys have your own bike boxes or do you hire them?

Hi Tupperware,

If you are flying from Gatwick on the Wednesday it sounds like you might be on the same flight as me...

As for accommodation, I've stayed at La Penita apartments, or more recently Rocas Blancas (where I am staying again).

Bike boxes - I'm hiring mine again. I used the Triathlon Shop in Bristol.

As for company, definitely. I'm based pretty much in central Swindon. I'll pm you my details and we can take it from there. Look forward to it.

Cheers,
Ozzie

I don't think I will be able to commit until early Nov. hopefully the flights will still be available.

If we go, we will probably do Wed to the following Fri. I'd like to spend some decent time after the race with the family.
