Greece recovers aviation capacity faster than other European markets

Mykonos greece The Enchanted Greek Islands: Must See Gems for 2023

Greece's aviation capacity is recovering from COVID-19 faster than any other leading European country, reports CAPA.

Based on schedules filed for the first week of Jul-2023, Greece will be at 114% of its seating capacity in the equivalent week of 2019.

The robust recovery in the Greek market exemplifies many features of aviation's recovery from the pandemic: it is led by leisure demand on short/medium haul routes. It has also experienced a substantial increase in the capacity share taken by low-cost airlines, with Ryanair and easyJet ranking as the second and third most prominent airlines in Greece by seats, and Jet2.com, Wizz Air, Eurowings and Volotea all in the top 10.

Aegean Airlines Group remains the largest operator in Greece.

However, although it is operating above 2019 capacity levels, it has not entirely kept pace with the Greek market. As a result, its summer 2023 seat share is projected to be slightly lower than in the summer of 2019.
