We have used Freedom from Gatwick once.  I can't say they were exceptional, but they were certainly as good as the usual charter companies.  

The fare was reasonable - staff were friendly - the flight was on time - the food was edible - we got our luggage at the other end.  What else can you ask for?

Hope you have a good time.

We went to Paxos recently, flying from East Midlands to Corfu with Freedom Flights.  Maybe that's the same operator?  The aircraft operator was Azzura Air.  Everything was fine.

Comforting  news, as I've just found out that's who we are flying with, though they have changed the flight times now twice, so fingers crossed.

35 days and counting...................

Know the topic is now a little old, but as we have flown via Freedom, can say that the aircraft we went out of Stansted on was Viking airlines - Greek Airline - or should I say the Flight crew were all Greek - no problem there, but a strange name if they are indeed Greek.
However, flight was on time both ways, aircraft clean, basic, but all you needed. In-flight refreshments were to say the least exorbitant - 2 Euros for an airline plastic cup of coke, and that out of a pet bottle......We knew though on the way back what to do.
No complaints, they got us there and back, although convinced the outbound pilot was obviously ex Naval and more used to landing on aircraft carriers, bloody hell he hit the deck hard.
Will I use them again - sure, if the price is right.
However you get there, just get there.............
