Guide Review - Aegean Airlines

Aegean Airlines has been determined to outperform its competition. While Aegean is still prey to some idiosyncracies of Greek airspace and route assignment, Aegean Airlines has attracted many repeat flyers who find the combination of competitive prices and superior service hard to resist.

New From Aegean - The Aegean Airlines Greek Airpass

In 2007, Aegean Airlines is offering an "Airpass" program which provides very good discounts on flights within Greece, with flights from Athens to the islands and other destinations starting at just 53 Euro.

In 2009, with the restructuring and rethinking of main competitor Olympic Airlines possibly turning into Pantheon Airlines underway, Aegean Airlines will be adapting to the changed operating environment in Greece, but observers expect the company to make the most of this opportunity and to become stronger and even more important to travel to, from, and within Greece.

Aegean Airlines added routes to and from London via Stansted, starting in May 2008. In 2009, they are adding service to several new cities in Europe, including Brussels, Berlin, Vienna, Barcelona and Venice. Their current schedule includes Athens, Thessaloniki, Heraklion, Chania, Rhodes, Kos, Samos, Mytilene (Lesvos), Chios, Alexandroupolis, Mykonos, Santorini, Kavala, Limnos, Corfu, Ioannina and Kefalonia (Cephalonia). International destinations include London, Paris, Munich, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Stuttgart, Berlin, Brussels, Barcelona, Rome, Milan, Venice, Larnaca (Cyprus), Paphos (Cyprus), Cairo, Sofia, Bucharest, and Tirana.
