Aegean Airlines expands its European offering with 13 new routes

On 28 May, Athens Airport celebrated with this special cake the inaugural flight of Aegean Airlines to Abu Dhabi. The new airport pair will be served four times weekly, using the carrier’s 168-seat A320s.

Furthermore, Hamburg Airport greeted with this cake, Aegean Airlines’ thrice-weekly flights from Athens on 27 May. The German gateway also invited a priest to bless this airport pair, which was last served ten years ago.

Celebrations continued at Brussels Airport on 2 June, this time for Aegean Airlines’ inaugural flight to Thessaloniki, which is operated twice-weekly utilising the Star Alliance member’s A319s.

  • Aegean Airlines expanded its European network with the addition of 13 new routes during the course of last week, all of which will be operated by its 168-seat A320s and 144-seat A319s. Notably, the average weekly frequency across the 13 new services is slightly over 1.9. With the longest sector being the 3,265-kilometre route from Athens (ATH) to Abu Dhabi (AUH), and the shortest being inaugurated from Corfu (CFU) to Munich (MUC) at 1,168 kilometres, the Star Alliance member will face competition on 12 of the new airport pairs.
