Theodoros Vassilakis, Aegean’s president and managing director, flew to Vienna to accept the Airline of the Year Award during ERA’s recent general assembly held there.

The European Regions Airline Association voted Aegean Airlines the Airline of the Year for 2004-2005. The 230-member association represents 70 European airline companies active in 250 European airports.

IRA’s airline of the year award was given to the Greek regional airline because it offered and continues to offer high quality overall service amid stiff competition, but at the same time displayed and continues to display a strong social conscience and still manages to post a profit. It also uses modern methods such as e-ticketing for the consumer and travel agent through its website and executes on-time schedules.

Aegean, in its 5½ years of life, has carried more than 13 million passengers. This year alone the airline expects to carry a total of 3.5 million passengers, which marks a 30% increase over last year. It also expects to post at least a profit that is slightly more than that posted last year, which reached six million euros.
