Greek Airline Aegean Flew Record Number Of Passengers In 2019

Greece's largest carrier, Aegean Airlines, flew 15 million passengers last year, which was a record for the 20-year old airline, it has revealed.

Aegean, a member of the Star Alliance airline group, said that overall passenger traffic grew 7% in 2019, with its load factor increasing to 84.8% from 83.9% a year earlier. Passenger traffic on its international routes grew 11% year-on-year.

"We continue to invest in extending the tourism period, a double bet on sustainable growth in tourism and the country," the carrier's CEO, Dimitris Gerogiannis, said in a statement.

Croatia Airlines Bid

Last month, Aegean submitted a non-binding bid for Croatia Airlines, which the Croatian government is seeking to privatise.
