Aegean Airlines started life as a business that specialised in executive and ambulance air transport. The airline was the first to be issued with a Greek independent air operator's licence in 1992 allowing it to branch out into scheduled passenger flights by the end of May 1999. After a 2001 merger with Aegean and Cronus Airlines, it operated for a time as Aegean Cronus Airlines before becoming Aegean Airlines.
Carrying over 65 million passengers in 2013, it is now Greece’s largest airline. With a focus on customer service, quality and efficiency, in 2013 it was named by Skytrax as the best regional airline in Europe for the fourth time.
