Greek airline SKY express recently welcomed its second Airbus A321neo to its fleet, which now counts 23 aircraft. The A321neo model is the largest version of the A320 family.
With the new delivery, the company’s fleet remains the youngest and greenest in Greece; one of the most environmentally friendly in Europe; and also an environmentally responsible option for passengers.
According to SKY express Chairman Theodoros Krokidas, the addition of the 23rd aircraft to the fleet marks the successful completion of the first part of the company’s investment plan.
“Almost two years ago, within the pandemic, we continued to fly to every single destination in our network and modernize our fleet by implementing with our own funds one of the largest investments worldwide in the field of aviation,” he said, adding that the result of the company’s dynamic course was the acquisition of 8 new Airbus A320neo, one Airbus A320ceo and 6 ATR 72-600.
“The addition of the second Airbus A321neo also marks a new growth cycle for SKY express, Greece and the economy at large through the further exploitation of the domestic tourism product and local entrepreneurship as a whole,” Krokidas said.
With its second Airbus A321neo, the company strengthens in practice the level of social and environmental responsibility of its flight project with the positive footprint summarized as follows follows:
– reduction of CO2 emissions by 20 percent
– reduced noise footprint
– 50 percent reduction in NOx emissions
– 25 percent less fuel consumption/position
– longer flight range by 500 nm / 926 km
SKY express will strengthen Greece’s tourist traffic this summer with more than 3.8 million seats on offer, up by 20 percent compared to last year. The company will fly to and from 64 airports in Greece and abroad.
The latest aircraft addition to the fleet of SKY express follows the delivery of its first A321neo in April. The two Airbus A321neos are expected to help increase the airline’s flight frequencies and destinations and also further enhance routes to and from London and Paris.
