Aegean Airlines

Aegean Airlines, Greece's largest airline, began operations in May 1999 and has seen significant expansion over the years. It started with flights from Athens to destinations such as Heraklion and Thessaloniki and quickly expanded to international ones as well. Notably, Aegean acquired Air Greece in December 1999 and later merged with Olympic Air in 2013, thereby strengthening its position in the Greek aviation market.

Aegean Airlines' fleet consists mainly of Airbus models, including the A320, A320neo, A321 and A321neo. Aegean currently operates a total of 61 aircraft, with ongoing plans to introduce more fuel-efficient models such as the A320neo and A321neo.

From Chisinau International Airport, Aegean Airlines offers routes to a number of destinations. Notable direct flights from Chisinau include services to major European cities.

Overall, Aegean Airlines has established a robust network with a modern fleet, offering extensive connectivity within Greece and to various international destinations.

Aegean Airlines has seen significant passenger growth in recent years. In 2021, the company carried 7.2 million passengers, and in 2023, this number increased to approximately 15.7 million passengers, which is an increase of approximately 26% compared to the previous year. This growth was influenced both by the expansion of the network and by the introduction of new routes and the optimization of existing ones.

In the first quarter of 2024, Aegean Airlines carried approximately 2.9 million passengers, registering an increase of 11% compared to the same period of the previous year. This growth was balanced between the international network operations in Athens and Thessaloniki.

These results underline Aegean Airlines' continued commitment to the development and modernization of its fleet and destination network, thus contributing to the growth of passenger traffic and strengthening the company's position in the commercial aviation market.
