Just days after Olympiakos retired its faithful Vanguard workhorse, Parakalo has followed in its footsteps, the last Vanguard flight being ATH-RHO-ATH (97% load!). The Aegean Airlines Association now moves forward into a new era, as for the first time ever we offer non-stop flights to New York (JFK and Newark) and Toronto on board our brand new DC8s.
In a spectacular ceremony, all three flights departed in a 3 minute separated sequence from Athens this morning on their inaugural flights. Customers were treated to a gate party serving Greek Cair from Rhodes, Ouzo from Lesvos and our new on-board wine selection exclusively from Crete by Douloufakis wines.
Parakalo and Olympiakos: offering customers Safe and Comfortable travel with the confidence of the sound financial footing of the AAA members. Greece has seen many bankruptcies in recent years and the AAA urges customers to think carefully before booking with one of these "here today, bust tomorrow" airlines that spring up.
