The partnership was announced on Thursday, during a special event held at AEGEAN’s Public Lounge at Athens International Airport, shortly before the Hellenic National Basketball Team departed for Croatian capital Zagreb for the official opening of Eurobasket 2015.

The team that will represent Greece at the Eurobasket tournament departed for Croatia on an exclusive flight chartered by AEGEAN.

“It is a great honor to support the national basketball team because it is a team linked with success and has proven many times that with persistence, passion and cooperation, even the impossible can be accomplished”, AEGEAN Vice President Eftychios Vassilakis said.

“I wish the players of our national team another success and I want to assure the players that AEGEAN will always stand by them. Besides, in our hearts they are always winners! Good luck!”

AEGEAN has launched a contest on the occasion of Eurobasket 2015 and invites everyone to post “good luck” wishes for the national team with the hashtag #kontastinethniki. Each point the national team scores in the Eurobasket tournament will be converted to Miles + Bonus miles by AEGEAN. The miles will be given to 10 lucky winners after a draw.
