Direct flights to Euro 2012 still available -- at a price

Irish football fans in London can still avail of flights to Poland for next year's European championships.
They're not cheap but Irish supporters hoping to cheer on Trapp's army can still buy tickets for direct flights from London to Poland for the group matches against Spain, Italy and Croatia.
While almost every scheduled flight out of Ireland to the Polish cities of Poznan and Gdansk was booked up within hours of last Friday's Euro 2012 draw there are still some seats available from London -- but they will cost a pretty penny.
Limited numbers of spaces are available on board Wizz Air flights from London Luton to the two host cities. A return journey -- arriving on the day before each game and returning on the day after -- costs about £250 (€293).
Ryanair serves both Poznan and Gdansk also and flights to either destination to cheer on the boys in green in June will cost about £300 (€351) return from London Stansted.
Flights from London to these cities in mid-June would normally cost a third of the price.
However, shrewd supporters could snap up flights from London to Berlin continuing their journey by public transport or by hiring a camper van!
Just over three hours away from Poznan, the German capital could be the perfect arrival point for Irish supporters trying to keep costs down.
