Eftichios Vassilakis, chairman of Aegean stated: “Our agreement with Airbus augments Aegean’s capacity for development along with a trusted, long standing partner.

“We invest in the bestselling A320neo Family to enhance our competitiveness and to further improve our service offering to our passengers.

“We believe in the ability of our people to excel in what they do and they deserve to have the best hardware for the job.”

“Aegean Airlines is a great example of a resilient and superbly managed airline. It has weathered the country’s financial crisis and come out of it much stronger than before.

“Moreover, Aegean’s customer focus and attention to service excellence have made the company one of the most awarded airlines in terms of customer satisfaction,” said Tom Enders, Airbus chief executive officer.

“We are extremely proud Aegean has selected Airbus to boost the efficiency of their future fleet.”
