AEGEAN captured 5th place this year in the world's 20 best airlines list (outside the U.S.) in this year's Readers' Choice Awards survey of Conde Nast Traveler

AEGEAN captured 5th place this year in the world's 20 best airlines list (outside the U.S.) in this year's Readers' Choice Awards survey of Conde Nast Traveler, with more than 429,000 travelers taking part in the survey.
In less than two decades, Aegean has grown from a tiny puddle-jumper to Greece’s largest airline; from its main airports in Athens and Thessaloniki, it now flies to 153 destinations throughout Europe and the Middle East. Although it doesn’t yet fly across the pond, its affiliation with Star Alliance gives it a wider global reach. Flying a modern fleet of narrow-body Airbus planes, the carrier is known for its professional, friendly staff, and in the coming years, plans to add new markets and expand by more than 50 percent.
