Greece’s Association of Airline Representatives Announces New Board of Directors
The Hellenic Association of Airline Representatives (SAAE) recently announced its new Board of Directors, following elections held during its general assembly in March.
Dinos Frantzeskakis, general manager of Discover the World, has been appointed president for a two-year mandate.
SAAE’s new Board of Directors is as follows:
Dinos Frantzeskakis, Discover the World
Michael Flerianos, Gold Star Aviation
Maria Theofanopoulou, Danae Airlines
Zoi Skreki, Intermodal Air
Marianthi Kaparaki, Top Kinisis
Following his appointment, Frantzeskakis said that the challenges – such as staff shortages – that the aviation industry is facing today with the new normality that is taking shape after the end of the health crisis calls for the continuous development and upgrading of the services that general agents/GSAs offer to airlines.
“This is the guarantee for the continuation and further increase of the turnover of the airline companies in Greece as well as of the members of the association, through new partnerships with airlines that trust us to promote and distribute their product and also to increase tourism in Greece,” he said.
SAAE was founded in 1989 and its members consist of Greek companies that represent foreign airlines in Greece. Currently, over 63 percent of foreign airlines represented in Greece operate under Greek General Sales Agents (GSAs).
