In addition, AEGEAN’s summer 2023 service will connect Tel Aviv with Ioannina, Chania and Kalamata.
The company also announced charter flights to Bremen (Germany), Malmö and Gothenburg (Sweden), Burgas (Bulgaria) and Timisoara (Romania).
Flights to launch in the following days
According to the company’s flight schedule, flights will soon launch from Athens to Newcastle, Valencia and Eindhoven; from Thessaloniki to Barcelona, Nuremberg, Cologne, Hanover and Venice; from Heraklion to Vienna and Marseille; and from Rhodes to Belgrade.
I hope they add Vilnius to the schedule…soon!
Recently had a flight from Stockholm to Athens the negative is the cramped leg space which is worse than EasyJet – good airline but the leg space needs situation needs to be resolved
How I wish Olympic would return to Syros. Even one flight a week to Athens or Thessaloniki would make a huge difference and I’m sure it would be profitable. Lots of rich people visit Syros and they would surely welcome a seamless connection to Aegean’s international network.It’s a mystery to me why nearby Paros has several flights per day but the much more attractive Syros is lucky to have one flight per day.
The Athens-Syros is a Public Service route so the service is attributed by the government after a tender. The government chose Sky express during the last tender so thats why there is not Olympic anymore on this route
