Star Alliance member Aegean Airlines is surprisingly well-known amongst frequent flyers – largely thanks to its frequent flyer programme, ‘miles+bonus’. For years it was possible to gain Star Alliance Gold status with only 20,000 miles. While those times are gone now, the airline is still a useful way to get around Europe, especially for destinations in Southern Europe and Greece. Aegean just received its first Airbus A320neo aircraft and revealed its new branding as well as new cabins.
New era for Aegean Airlines
A new era of growth has begun for Aegean, with the official reveal of its new livery and branding as well as the presentation of the first three new generation Airbus A320neo. Having already expanded the initial order with 12 additional aircraft, Aegean is expected to receive a minimum of 46 aircraft by 2025.
This is the largest private investment in Greece, valued at $2.5-3bn at market prices ($6-6.5bn at list prices). For the next 6 years, Aegean will invest more than $500mn per year for the expansion and modernization of its fleet.
New branding & cabins
At an event to mark the occasion, Aegean Airlines presented its new livery and ‘brand identity’:
Inspired by the Greek sky and seas, historical architecture and the design heritage of our country, the new brand identity, livery and cabin are here to shape a dynamic future for Aegean and enhance passenger experience.
The cabin design on-board the A320neo aircraft has also been refreshed, with seats now including adjustable headrests. The catering presentation has also been revised, and there is a position for a tablet or smartphone so passengers can watch films and tv more comfortably.
