Olympic Air will abandon two domestic routes departing from Athens
Olympic Air announced its intention to give up domestic flights between Athens and Thessaloniki and Héraklion. From October 14 2013, Olympic Air will cancel the 23 flights on the Athens - Thessaloniki route, currently honored with Bombardier Dash-8 Q400 aircraft. Also from this date, the 18 weekly flights between Athens and Heraklion, Crete will be canceled. Passengers who have booked tickets for these routes, with flights after 14 in October, will be able to receive the money back or be transferred to Aegean Airlines.
We put this decision on account of the financial problems facing Olympic Air. According to the decision of the European Commission, we will see if Aegean Airlines will succeed in acquiring 100% of the Olympic Air carrier, a transaction of 72 million.
