Cheap Olympic Airlines Flights (OA)


Olympic Airlines was the flag carrier airline of Greece, with its head office in Athens. Olympic Airlines operated services to 37 domestic destinations and to 32 international destinations. The main base of the company was at Athens International Airport, with hubs at Thessaloniki International Airport, Heraklion International Airport, and Rhodes International Airport. Olympic Airlines also owned a base at London Heathrow International Airport. By December 2007, the airline employed about 8,500 staff.

On March 6, 2009, the Greek State announced they had reached an agreement to sell the flight operations, ground handling operations and technical base of the group to Marfin Investment Group, the largest Greek investment fund, thus ending a 35-year period of state ownership.

On 29 September 2009 Olympic Airlines ceased all operations and most flights. Olympic Air, the new airline formed from its privatisation, commenced flights. Olympic Airlines continued to operate some public service flights to Greek islands as well as some flights to destinations outside the European Union (Cairo, Alexandria, Tel Aviv, Beirut, Belgrade) until the Greek State conducted a public tender and redistributed the routes.

On 31 December 2009 Olympic Airlines ceased all operations.
