Airlines Greece- Air Travel in Greece

Greece, a long-time favourite destination for convention planners, has an extensive network of domestic airlines and airports ensuring safe, fast, smooth and comfortable transportation of delegates to any convention centre or facility on the mainland or the islands.

Aegean Airlines is Greece’s largest airline, providing since 1999 full service, premium quality short and medium haul services. Aegean Airlines supports a network of 145 destinations, 111 international in 45 countries and 34 domestic, with 16,200,000 available seats. Aegean Airlines is a member of Star Alliance and received the award for Best Regional Airline in Europe at the 2016 Skytrax World Airline Awards and have been awarded in this category for 6 consecutive years.

Olympic Air and Aegean united their strengths on October 2013 in order to become even better and offer a wide-ranging network extended within Greece as well as abroad, supporting Greek regions and ensuring the qualitative access even to the most remote Greek island. They connect every corner of Greece, flying to 111 international destinations and 34 Greek airports, while through Star Alliance network they fly all over the world.

Ellinair is a member of Mouzenidis Group and was originally created in order to serve the high volume of tourists, mainly from Russia, who visits Greece by Mouzenidis Travel. In October 2014 Ellinair flights were incorporated in all the Global Distribution Systems (GDSs), in order to ensure accessibility to all tourist agencies. On 15 June 2015, Ellinair launched new domestic routes from Athens and Thessaloniki.

Sky Express, a regional airline based in Heraklion, Crete, offers scheduled, charter and cargo flights, air taxi, emergency medical services, excursions and sight seeing.

Moreover, air charters for executives and VIP flights, as well as air taxis, are also available for service on demand without the constrictions of airlines flight schedules. They can transfer delegates point-to-point at locations where their conventions are held, while remote locations or small islands without airports are served with helicopters.

A total of 48 international carriers operating in Greece provide mostly international connections, while some domestic destinations are also served directly by foreign airlines, with charter or regular flights.

Greece has an extensive domestic network of 78 airports, 39 of which are international. The country’s most significant airports are located in Athens, Alexandroupolis, Kastoria and Thessaloniki in northern Greece, Heraklion on the island of Crete, and Rhodes.

Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos” (IAI), which opened on March 1, 2001, is designed with an initial capacity of 16 million passengers per year and twin runways allowing simultaneous departure and arrivals. Providing a quality of services that beyond those at “average airports”, AIA is an important hubcap in the region, providing a full range of bank and postal services, as well as shops, restaurants, fully equipped booths with PCs, internet access and a complete package of supporting services for conferences and training seminars at specially arranged state-of-the-art Conference Rooms.

With congress tourism being a significant focus point in the sector, care has been taken for the easy and comfortable transportation of delegates to the location of their business meeting. Almost all of the convention centres or hotels with meeting facilities, either on the mainland or the islands, are located within close proximity to an airport.
