About Aegean Airlines

Aegean Airlines is a Greek airline that was founded in 1987. It has its headquarters in Athens plus three main hubs from which it operates. These are the Greek airports of ThessaloNiki International Airport, Athens International Airport as well as Lamaca International Airport in Cyprus. Boasting a fleet of about 50 aircraft, Aegean Airlines flies to more than 140 destinations around the world. Since 2010, the airline has been a member of the Star Alliance. It has codeshare agreements with a number of airlines including TAP Portugal, Air Canada, Turkish Airlines, Etihad Airways, Lufthansa and Singapore Airlines.

Aegean Airlines purchased Olympic Air in 2013, although both airlines have continued to operate under their own brand names. The airline flies to several domestic and international destinations, such as the German cities of Hamburg, Frankfurt and Berlin. In addition to these locations, passengers can also book flights to the popular French destinations of Toulouse, Paris and Nice.

The airline only does this connection once a week from Vienna to Athens and then onto Sofia. Only Austrian airlines gives you a direct flight to Sofia and I think this was very long and tiresome especially for the cost it wasn?t worth it

5.0 /5
Date 2017-10-26 City UK Age Under 30 Class Economy

Wonderful airline very friendly. Provided food and beverages throughout the flight and were very conscientious. The only problem that I had was that they insisted on stowing my suitcase in the hold even though there was room in the overhead lockers and the suitcase did meet overhead luggage standards. This did cause me delays going to my meeting post flight as I had to wait for the luggage at the carousel.

Flight with Gemanwings 1 hour delayed. No reason was explained. No proper annoynsment. Illegal and arrogant check by police of all transit passengers without explanation of reasons on a airport field in a windy and cold conditions, when I am coughing now.
