Greeces largest airline and multiple award winner: Aegean Airlines
Aegean is Greeces largest airline, offering first-class full service on short haul and medium-haul flights since 1999. In 2010 Aegean became a member of the Star Alliance, the worlds leading airline alliance. As a consequence of the takeover of Olympic Air in October 2013, Aegean passengers now benefit from increased flight frequencies and many additional flight connections to Greek and international destinations. In 2014 the two companies Aegean and Olympic combined to transport 10.1 million passengers. In this year the airline is expanding its seating capacity to over 15.4 million, a rise of close to 2.4 million seats compared to 2014. In the year 2014 Aegean was named the Best Regional Airline in Europe within the context of the Skytrax World Airline Awards. Aegean won this award for the fifth time in addition to the years 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2009.
