Aegean Airlines, considered Greece’s most prominent domestic carrier, last month announced it was about to add two more four-engine Avro RJ 100 turbo-prop passenger aircraft to its fleet.
The new aircraft, supplied by British Aerospace, raises the airline’s fleet to nine aircraft (six Avro RJ 100s and three fully upgraded ATR-72s inherited after its merger with Air Greece).
Aegean Airlines said it invested more than 50 billion drachmas in the past 12 months in an effort to expand its activities in the domestic air market.
The company operates 84 scheduled flights in 11 domestic destinations daily. Its average passenger load rate note exceeds 75 percent and the airline has carried almost one million passengers in the last 12 months.
