Aegean reports first rise in domestic air traffic in four years

By Alexandra Kassimi

Aegean Airlines reported on Wednesday an increase in domestic traffic last month for the first time in four years.

Along with its subsidiary Olympic Air, Aegean posted a remarkable 18 percent increase year-on-year from its Athens hub, and a 41 percent rise from its hub in Thessaloniki.

This is attributed to Aegean’s new pricing policy since November that has led to impressive growth in traffic to island destinations.

Total traffic for Aegean and Olympic’s domestic and international flights rose 12 percent last month to 522,000 passengers.
