SKY Express Exceeds Expectations in 2022, Anticipates Strong Performance in 2023

ATHENS – During a SKY Express event marking the start of the summer season, Gerasimos Skaltsas, the head of the General Commercial Directorate, emphasized that “[The year] 2022 was a milestone for SKY Express and Greek tourism that exceeded all expectations.” The company’s outstanding performance in the first quarter of 2023, coupled with robust pre-bookings for the summer, indicates a promising year ahead.

SKY Express is set to provide a total of 3.8 million seats, reflecting a significant increase of 17% compared to 3.2 million seats in 2022 and a substantial growth of 200% compared to a mere 1.3 million seats in 2019.

Projections for this year anticipate reaching 4.5 million passengers, surpassing the 3.5 million passengers in 2022. The airline plans to operate around 54,000 flights to at least 65 destinations, surpassing the 50,000 flights and 56 destinations in 2022 (compared to 32,500 flights and 30 destinations in 2019). Notably, passenger traffic during the summer is expected to rise by 14%, accommodating 2.33 million passengers compared to 1.91 million last year.

SKY Express recently received its second Airbus A321neo, bringing the total fleet count to 23 aircraft, showcasing the company’s ongoing investments in its operations.

While the possibility of listing on the Athens Stock Exchange is under consideration, the current focus of the company’s management remains on further developing SKY Express.
