Air travel no longer needs to be the dark cloud over an otherwise sunny trip – let Olympic Air refresh you and remind you that all along, you deserved more.

Olympic Air launched scheduled operations in September 2009, carrying over the historic name and logo of formerly state-owned ‘Olympic Airlines’, embodying a dynamic, modern approach to the company’s management and operation.

Olympic Air boasts one of the youngest fleets in Europe, comprised of eight Airbus Α320s and Α319s, 10 Bombardier-De Havilland DHC8-Q400s, and five Bombardier-De Havilland DHC8-100s.
