Aegean Airlines is expected to receive a minimum of 46 A320neo and A321neo aircraft in total by 2025. The airline also has an option for 12 additional aircraft. The largest private investment in Greece, the order is valued at $6-6.5 billion at list prices.
Aegean Airline’s new livery and brand identity are inspired by the Greek sky and seas, historical architecture and design heritage. New cabin features such as USB chargers, personal device holders and unlimited wifi will enhance passenger experience onboard.
Sustainable growth strategy
The official reveal ceremony of the new aircraft and Aegean’s new livery on 12 February was attended by the Greek prime minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
During his speech, he pointed out the value of the investment for Greece. “The Greek government actively supports companies that focus on cutting-edge technology, respect their employees and adopt sustainable growth practices. It is then when their own growth becomes value for the society.”
“Aegean combines vision with reason and while flying, remains grounded. This is an attribute that the country needs, especially from Greek companies”.
Aegean Airlines CEO Dimitris Gerogiannis highlighted the significance of the investment, reiterating the company’s commitment for ongoing growth. “For all of us, the new aircraft represents primarily a platform that enables our people to work consistently towards creating a better travelling experience for our passengers.”
Chairman of Aegean, Eftychios Vassilakis emphasised aviation’s contribution in the development of the tourism sector. “In the wake of our third decade, we are committed to continue investing and working towards gaining our passengers’ trust, operating responsibly, protecting the environment as well as offering growth opportunities for our employees.”
The new aircraft operates its first flight from Athens to Munich on 14 February 2020.
