Aegean Airlines return to Birmingham Airport for Summer 2015 with increased capacity to Athens

Aegean Airlines, Greece’s largest carrier and a Star Alliance member, has announced that
it will increase capacity between Birmingham and Athens for its return in Summer 2015,
following the successful launch of the route in June this year

Operating each Wednesday and Sunday between the end of March and October 2015, the
Birmingham-Athens service not only provides passengers with a direct link to the Greek
capital but also onward connectivity throughout the Greek islands and mainland Greece
on Aegean’s domestic and international extensive network

The flights will operate using 168-seat Airbus A320 aircraft, offering a dual class configuration
and full on-board service, which includes complimentary food and drink

William Pearson, Aviation Development Director at Birmingham Airport, said, "It’s no surprise
that this Athens service from Birmingham has been such a success as it provides direct access
to Athens and choice across the Greek Islands, which are hugely popular with British tourists"

"We are therefore delighted that the team at Aegean has not only recognized the demand in
the Midlands region to recommence services at the end of March but also increase capacity
over the summer months from Birmingham"

Flights are available to book now via or through travel agents, with a
lead in round trip fare in April and May 2015 costing £113.38 including taxes

Business class passengers and Gold card members have business lounge access at Birmingham
Airport and Gold card members are also eligible for extra baggage allowance
