STAR ALLIANCE has formally welcomed Greek carrier Aegean Airlines as a member. Founded in 1987 it is now Greece’s largest airline and is in the process of taking over Olympic Air but still is waiting for approval from the European Commission. At the time of the merger announcement it was said that eventually the name Aegean would disappear but this appears now less likely. Currently the airline has a fleet of 30 aircraft, mainly Airbus A320 series plus six Avro regional jets. Olympic has around the same number, again the majority Airbus A320 but also Bombardier Dash 8 series. Both airlines operate separately Heathrow – Athens, Aegean already into the Star Alliance T1 and Olympic at T4. www.aegeanair.com
