Sky Express to Launch Direct Flights from Athens to Brussels on May 16

ATHENS — The low-cost Greek airline Sky Express is starting direct flights from Athens to Brussels on Sunday. With these new flights, held six days a week, Sky Express adds another international destination to its network.

"Sky Express passengers will fly with the brand new 'green' fleet of Airbus A320neo [aircraft] and also enjoy personalised services at the most competitive prices of the market," said the airline in an announcement on Thursday, adding: "After the successful entry into Larnaca, Cyprus and the launch of direct domestic flights (Athens-Thessaloniki and Athens-Rhodes), the new international destination is another important step for the further development of Sky Express. A company that is constantly growing for the benefit of passengers and local communities, serving the biggest network in Greece and flying to more than 40 domestic and foreign destinations."
