The head of the General Commercial Directorate, Gerasimos Skaltsas, said during a SKY Express event marking the start of the summer season that "2022 was a milestone for SKY Express and Greek tourism that exceeded all expectations."

Skaltsas said that the company had an excellent performance in the first quarter of 2023 and, based on the pre-bookings for the summer, this looks likely to exceed expectations.

SKY Express will offer a total of 3.8 million seats, compared to 3.2 million in 2022 (an increase of 17%) and only 1.3 million in 2019 (+200%).

The airline is estimated to reach 4.5 million passengers this year from 3.5 million last year, with approximately 54,000 flights, to at least 65 destinations, from 50,000 flights and 56 destinations in 2022 (32,500 flights and 30 destinations in 2019).

In summer, passenger traffic rises 14%, to 2.33 million passengers, from 1.91 million last year.

Regarding investments, the company recently received the second Airbus A321neo, totalling 23 aircraft.

Regarding the possibility of its listing on the Athens Stock Exchange, executives of the company's management stated that it is something they are considering. However, at the present stage, the main priority is the further development of SKY Express.
