Aegean Airlines is a Greek airline founded in 1987 with headquarters situated in Athens, Greece. This airline operates from its 3 main hubs at Athens International Airport and ThessaloNiki International Airport in Greece, plus Lamaca International Airport in Cyprus.

Codeshare agreements include partnerships with airlines such as Air Canada, Etihad Airways, Tap Portugal, Singapore Airlines, Turkish Airlines and Lufthansa.
In 2013, Aegean Airlines purchased Olympic Air, however both airlines continue to fly with their own brand names. The company flights include several domestic and international destinations. French destinations include Nice, Paris and Toulouse, while Aegean Airlines flights to German destinations include Berlin, Hamburg and Frankfurt.
