The favourite Airline of Greeks, ΑEGEAN Airlines is the main supporter of the Mindspark Initiative.
The greatest event on Marketing, Creativity and Innovative thinking launched as an initiative in 2017 and evolved through the support of the community, neurons (commonly known as speakers) and partners who believed in the vision.
AEGEAN Airlines since the beggining of the mindspark as a concept embraced the vision, and offered support to the organising team to overcome barriers and focus on strengthening the impact of the initiative.
Today two years after the first attempts to design the mindspark, AEGEAN Airlines remains the basic supporter, and have contributed in the evolvement of the mindspark, in practice.
Aegean Airlines, a member of Star Alliance, is Greece’s largest airline providing ever since its inception in 1999 until today, full service, premium quality short and medium haul services.
In 2013 AEGEAN acquired Olympic Air; as a result, passengers now have increased flight frequencies and connections as well as improved accessibility to Greece’s islands, including some of the most remote ones. Total traffic of both companies reached 13.2m passengers in 2017. The company´s summer 2018 timetable includes a network of 153 destinations, in 44 countries in total. The flights are being performed with one of the youngest fleets in Europe, comprising of 61 aircraft.
In June 2018 AEGEAN signed a purchase agreement with Airbus, for the order of up to 42 new generation aircraft of the A320neo family. The investment is valued at 5 billion USD at list prices, and it is the largest private investment in Greece. The new aircraft facilitate the offer of new services to passengers, as well as increased range capabilities for expansion to new destinations and markets.
AEGEAN was awarded as the best regional airline in Europe for 2018 by Skytrax World Airline Awards, for the 8th consecutive time and 9th time over the last 10 years.
