Aegean-Olympic Air Merger Boosts Domestic Traffic In Greece

aegean_olympic_airOne month after the merger, Aegean Airlines has reported a 10 percent increase in combined domestic traffic with Olympic Air. The Greek carrier expects even better results in 2014.

According to the parent company Aegean, the two carriers transported 315,000 passengers last month, against 286,000 passengers in November 2012, one year before the merger.

After four years of falling domestic traffic, destinations such as Chania, Chios, Mytilene and Ioannina reported a rise in arrivals. Last month was also a good month in terms of passenger traffic on the subsidized routes to Milos, Paros and Kythera.

In addition, last month the two Greek carriers reported a 17 percent increase in air traffic on three major domestic routes (Athens-Thessaloniki, Athens-Rhodes, Athens-Heraklion), almost entirely covering the absence of Cyprus Airways from those routes.
