Greece’s SKY Express and Royal Jordanian Join Forces

ATHENS – SKY express and Royal Jordanian are joining forces to offer passengers more options from the Middle East to the largest domestic flights network in Greece.

According to an announcement by SKY express on Monday, the strategic cooperation of the two airlines allows passengers flying to the Athens airport El. Venizelos from the Middle East and Asia with Royal Jordanian to easily continue their journey to one of 34 separate Greek destinations served by SKY express.

“The travel experience is made even more outstanding by the newest and greenest fleet in the country and one of the most environmentally-friendly in Europe,” the company said in a statement, adding that through such alliances SKY express “significantly strengthens its position on an international level and at the same time participates in the national effort to establish the country as a top choice.”

It has already entered into interline agreements with global airlines such as Air France, KLM, Qatar Airways, American Airlines, Cyprus Airways, Condor, El Al and Transavia, Middle East Airlines, Air Transat, Emirates and Delta.

Giannis Lidakis, Commercial Director of SKY express, stated: “One of the primary goals we set at SKY express is to increase connectivity both inside the country and abroad. Staying true to our plan today we serve the largest domestic network, but also popular European destinations such as Paris, London, Rome, Larnaca and Brussels. We are not complacent. Through strategic alliances such as this one with Royal Jordanian, we are constantly creating bridges for the benefit of our country and we offer passengers the opportunity to enjoy the experience of unique Greek destinations.”

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
