Aegean is Greece’s largest airline providing since 1999, full service, premium quality, short and medium haul flights. In 2010 Aegean joined the Star Alliance, the strongest airline alliance worldwide.

In 2014 the company plans to operate approximately 100,000 flights and to offer more than 13 million seats, close to 2.5 million more seats than during 2013. Following the addition of 5 more Airbus A320/321 aircraft the fleet in 2014 is made up of 50 aircraft. Aegean has a total of 8 aircraft bases, connecting Greece with 87 international destinations in 32 countries as well as flying to 33 domestic airports. Total traffic of both companies reached 8.8 million passengers in 2013.
