About Aegean Airlines
Aegean Airlines is the largest airline in Greece. Since its creation in 1999, it has offered a comprehensive range of high-quality short and medium-haul flights. The acquisition of Olympic Air on 23 October 2013 enabled Aegean to increase flight and connection frequency, thus improving access to the Greek islands, including those furthest away, for both tourists and Greeks. In 2013, Aegean transported 6.8 million passengers; total traffic for both airlines was 8.8 million passengers.
Aegean is increasing its international presence and supporting tourism to Athens and in regional Greek airports. With 13 million seats available in 2014, the airline operates from 8 airport bases, linking Greece to 87 international destinations in 32 countries and serving 33 domestic airports. The route network operated by Aegean and Olympic Air together exceeded 256 routes in 2014, including 205 international and 51 domestic routes.
In 2014 Aegean received the Skytrax World Airline Award, presented to the best regional airline in Europe, for the 5th time (it also won the accolade in 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2013).
