AEGEAN wins “Best Regional Airline in Europe”



AEGEAN was once again awarded for the seventh consecutive year as the “Best Regional Airline in Europe” at the 2017 Skytrax World Airline Awards held during the recent Paris Air Show at the Musee de l’Air et de l’ Espace.

“For the seventh year in a row, through an international institution, we proved that a Greek company can stand out among 325 airlines for its quality and efficiency,” said AEGEAN CEO Dimitris Gerogiannis.

“This distinction is more valuable to us, as it comes directly from the passengers, who trust the airline daily,” he added.

Referred to as the “Oscars of the aviation industry” the World Airline Awards are based on a worldwide survey, allowing travellers to decide which airline they love best. Approximately 19.87 million eligible survey entries were counted in the final results, and 105 nationalities participated in the survey from August 2016 to May 2017.

The survey covered over 325 airlines, from largest international airlines to smaller domestic carriers.

Congratulating AEGEAN, Skytrax CEO Edward Plaisted said the company “continues to be one of the favourite airlines of the World Airlines Awards”. He also underlined that the company continues to rank high due to the services offered by its staff, “which are supported by AEGEAN’s strong product”.
