AEGEAN: New Destinations and 700,000 Additional Seats in 2019Elina Ftika
The 2019 flight schedule of AEGEAN includes increased capacity with additional frequencies and new routes.
According to an announcement on Thursday, the airline company is investing this year on both network expansion and the extension of the tourism season in Greece.
AEGEAN plans this year to increase the capacity of its international network by 700,000 seats, reaching a total of 10.3 million seats in its international network and 17.7 million seats in total, including its domestic network.
Increased capacity will be offered throughout the year, with the growth stemming mainly from the increase during the winter months as well as at the start and end of the summer season (i.e. April, May and October).
This year, AEGEAN will launch new routes from Athens to Marrakech, Casablanca, Ibiza, Valencia, Sarajevo, Tunis and Skopje. A new route will also launch from Thessalonikito Hannover.
Moreover, the company will increase frequency and capacity to key Western European markets, from Athens to Munich, Düsseldorf, Berlin, Hamburg, Zurich, Vienna, Madrid, Barcelona, Lisbon and Porto.
AEGEAN’s increase in capacity will also come from the start of several seasonal routes either earlier in the year or through increased frequencies to Luxembourg, Malta, Venice, Bologna, Naples, Catania and Malaga. In addition, increased capacity will also be offered to the Balkans and Eastern Europe.
