Greece and Olympic Air

APG Global Associates has been appointed UK and Ireland general sales agency for Olympic Air.  The airline has no services out of Heathrow to Athens and there are no immediate plans to do so at this current time.  It has however a code share agreement with Aegean Airways departing from Terminal 1 offering a twice daily Airbus A320 series operation.  Olympic Air provides 32 domestic destinations in Greece which is more than any other carrier. 

Olympic Air is now owned by Marfin Investment Group (MIG), the largest business group in south east Europe, active in the fields of transport, tourism, food, healthcare and IT, with more than 56,000 employees and a client base that exceeds 20 million people in 40 countries. 

In a statement when launching the airline investment it said:

“The new Olympic Air will be more modern than ever and have a new vision, a new vigour, a new concept – with brand new cutting-edge aircraft, with innovative and pioneering services, with traditional Greek hospitality, and a renewed passion to offer even more.”  The airline operates eight Airbus A320 series and 15 Bombardier Dash 8s. www.apg-ga.com
