Aegean Airlines launches a seasonal route trio from Athens

Aegean Airlines Cluj-Napoca

Cluj-Napoca Airport certainly had its cake and ate it this week, baking this mighty Greek architecture-inspired culinary masterpiece to greet the inaugural flight of Aegean Airlines from Athens on 12 June. Seen cutting the cake are Gabriela Zanc, Commercial Director, Cluj-Napoca Airport; and Sergios Diplarakos, Airport Services Manager, Aegean Airlines. The Star Alliance member will operate twice-weeklu flights between the two cities using its A320s.

  • Aegean Airlines has launched a trio of summer seasonal routes from Athens (ATH) this week, with the Star Alliance member now linking the Greek capital to Cluj-Napoca (CLJ), Genoa (GOA) and Verona (VRN). The 983-kilometre sector to Cluj-Napoca in Romania was the first to launch, with the airline starting the city pair on 12 June. It will offer twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Fridays) flights between the two airports using its fleet of A320s, with direct competition being provided by Wizz Air which also offers twice-weekly flights. Services to Genoa commenced the following day, with the 1,450-kilometre jaunt to Italy also seeing a twice-weekly (Wednesdays and Sundays) A320 operation. Competition on the Genoa link is provided by Volotea which offers a twice-weekly rotation. The final route to be inaugurated – Verona – joined the Star member’s route map on 18 June, with it offering a twice-weekly (Mondays and Fridays) service on the 1,360-kilometre sector to the northern Italian airport. Like Genoa services, Aegean will face direct competition on the Verona city pair from Volotea which offers twice-weekly flights. Verona will be served by Aegean’s A320 fleet. All three routes will operate until the end of September. See how the FTWAs from Cluj-Napoca and Verona compare to others from around the world.
