Aegean Airlines Gradually Restarting Flights Abroad, Increasing Domestic Ones

On May 18, the airline will add more flights to Iraklio and Chania on Crete, Thessaloniki and Alexandroupolis in northern Greece, while the same will happen as of May 25 for the islands of Rhodes, Corfu, Mytilini, Chios, Samos and the rest of the domestic itineraries.

Starting late in May, the airline will start connecting with main hubs in Europe – Munich, Zurich, Frankfurt and Geneva – with a limited number of flights, and increase the number of flights to Brussels, the only foreign destination it did not cancel during the lockdown.

It said that both flight crew and passengers will be obliged to wear masks during travel and all aircraft will be carefully cleaned and disinfected after flights.

When restrictions in travel were introduced by the government due to the pandemic on March 26, Aegean kept all its domestic itineraries but reduced their frequency, making its services available solely for transport of specialists or medical materials. It also kept some flights to Brussels to retain connections to the EU's administrative capital.
