- Aegean Airlines inaugurated services on the 1,600-kilometre route from Athens (ATH) to Warsaw (WAW) on 7 March. The service, previously operated by LOT Polish Airlines with daily frequencies until early November 2012, is offered by the Greek carrier twice-weekly until 2 April, when a third weekly flight will be added. The launch flight was operated by the airline’s “Acropolis Museum” logojet, SX-DVV. On 9 March, the airline also commenced seasonal operations connecting Kalamata (KLX) and Stockholm Arlanda (ARN). Weekly flights are offered on the route until 17 August. Both new routes are operated using A320s.
