Over the past week Parakalo has moved its entire operation to the new airport of Athens - Elefthérios Venizélos. This modern Airport is our new home and gives the travelling public the best possible experience. A proud member of the Aegean Alliance, Parakalo offers an unrivalled level of hospitality, and gives our frequent flyer partners in the Azure scheme access to a state of the art lounge featuring all the best food and drink from all over Greece.
To mark our move, a very special event was held on the evening of the 28th March: A specially painted DC9-51 that had been held in reserve and a Viscount took off to perform enthusiasts charter flights. As the sun set, they flew over the runway at Hellenikon in formation with a B737 and a F100. Thereafter the DC9 and Viscount departed to spend a night in Thessaloniki and Iraklion respectively. The next morning, as the sun rose, the first passengers arriving at LGAV were treated to a formation arrival of these two iconic aircraft, the DC9 having the distinction of performing the very first Parakalo landing at the airport. This surprise event represented the very last DC9 operation for Parakalo ever and was a fitting tribute to the jet that brought Parakalo to the wider world.
We look forward to welcoming our guests on board at our new facility - Parakalo and the Aegean Alliance - What are YOU waiting for??
