LONDON – Greek carrier SKY express has recently inaugurated their new service connecting Athens, Greece, and Munich, Germany.
The new route
Just recently, on October 27, Greek carrier SKY express inaugurated a new route from Greece’s capital Athens, to Munich, Germany.
The new route offers a five-times-weekly service, on highly competitive grounds, with both Aegean and Lufthansa serving on the same route.
After the landing of the inaugural flight, airport officials at Munich Airport welcomed the new airline and its customers by wearing traditional outfits, offering local sweets at de-boarding, as well as a water cannon salute.
SKY express has been hard at work in the past months, greatly expanding their route offerings, and this new route is no exception, as it further increases connectivity between the two destinations, offering 34 Greek destinations as well as Cyprus, from Munich with the connectivity offered.
On the service, SKY express offers three fare types suited to your needs and preferences, with the fare types being; “SKY joy”, “SKY joy+,” and “SKY enjoy”.
The new route is just one of the new destinations SKY express has announced this year.
Mr. Vassilis Krasanakis, Network Planning & Pricing Manager at SKY express, commented on the inauguration, saying:-
“At SKY express we are proud of the inclusion of the Bavarian capital in our flying schedule. A destination with a special connection to the Greek international community, which was part of the airline’s plan all along.”
“Direct flights five days a week, all year round, significantly enhance connectivity by offering passengers from either Athens or Munich the best conditions and of course the most modern fleet in Greece and one of the most environmentally friendly in Europe”
Vice President of Route and Passenger Development of Munich Airport, Thomas Kube, also commented, saying:-
“Greece and Bavaria are sharing not only the flag colors white and blue but strong cultural links as well.”
“With this in mind, Munich Airport is very proud that our newest carrier, SKY express, with its modern fleet, will connect our two capitals. Both airports can now provide a significantly enhanced connectivity that will facilitate and stimulate air travel between Greece and Germany.”
One of few new routes
The first flight for the new Athens-Milan-connection departed on October 26, with the new destination being formally announced just two days prior by SKY express themselves.
That route, in itself, increased destination offerings to the carrier’s customers, given that SKY express already operates to Rome’s Fiumicino, which also got a frequency increase with the same announcement to daily flights.
On November 2, SKY express also inaugurated their new service to the Bulgarian city of Sofia, which runs on a five times-weekly service.
To this, Mr. Vassilis Krasanakis also commented:-
“Today, we are announcing the expansion of our flight program in a strategic area with strong ties in Greece in terms of hospitality and entrepreneurship.”
“We are overjoyed for two reasons; within a short time from our first international flight, we spread our wings to the 10th international destination that we serve all year round with the newest and greenest fleet in Greece.”
“This can only give us the further impetus for the next steps of SKY express’s long-term plan.”
