Greece’s leading airline carrier AEGEAN was voted fifth in the ‘Best Airlines in the World’ category at the Condé Nast Traveler’s 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards.
More than 429,000 travellers participated in the annual poll that took place as part of Condé Nast Traveler’s 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards.
Condé Nast Traveler noted that in less than two decades, Aegean has grown to become Greece’s largest airline and from its main airports in Athens and Thessaloniki, it now flies to 153 destinations throughout Europe and the Middle East.
“Although it doesn’t yet fly across the pond, its affiliation with Star Alliance gives it a wider global reach,” Condé Nast Traveler said.
“AEGEAN is known for its professional, friendly staff, and in the coming years, plans to add new markets.”
Singapore Airlines took the first spot on the list and has the title of best airline in the world for 2018, followed by Emirates, Qatar, and Air New Zealand.
