Aegean expands

Essentially the de facto successor to the old Olympic Airways, Aegean Airlines has launched its new flight schedule for 2015.  This includes a network of 134 destinations, 34 of which are international and 100 domestic, in 42 countries.  Aegean operates a 56 strong all-Airbus A320 series fleet with an average age of 6.3 years.  The airline is a member of Star Alliance but unlike its forerunner operates only short to medium haul routes with no services to North America.

Ten new countries (Armenia, Croatia, Estonia, Finland, Iran, Kuwait, Malta, Netherlands, Norway and Saudi Arabia) and 16 international destinations (Amsterdam, Deauville, Dubrovnik, Helsinki, Kuwait, Malta, Metz, Naples, Oslo, Paphos, Pisa, Riyadh, Tallinn, Tehran, Toulouse and Yerevan) are being added to the network for next year.

At a press conference, Vice-President Eftychios Vassilakis, said: "2015 is a milestone-year for Aegean.  We invest in new fleet, in a network of 134 destinations and we offer 15 million seats.  We proceed with the powerful enhancement of the hub of Athens, but we also support the regional development through increased flights from our regional bases. We continue and we enhance our policy of supporting small islands, a policy that brought impressive results in 2014 targeting to highlight the multiplicity of the Greek tourism product.” www.aegean.com
