SKY express, the fastest-growing Greek airline, has appointed AirlinePros International as its General Sales Agent in Australia. As the GSA, AirlinePros will be providing full representation in the market, with the whole range of sales, marketing and customer services. The airline flies to 34 exciting domestic destinations and an ever-growing number of European destinations (Paris, London, Rome, Brussels etc.). The appointment provides SKY express’ customers in Australia access to a world of customized services. It will also boost the Athens-based airline’s reach in Asia-Pacific and also provide a major fillip to the airline’s ever-expanding ambitions.
“We’re very excited to start working with AirlinePros as our GSA in Australia,” said Gerasimos Skaltsas, SKY express’ Chief Commercial Officer. “And it makes sense to develop in this market with a trusted and experienced partner like AirlinePros, who have been working with us in the United States providing both Commercial Support and ARC Coordination for several years. We are confident that our expansion plans will be complemented the best way possible on the commercial front while we focus our mission to turn everyday flying into a modern, easy, and comfortable experience, tailor-made to our passengers’ needs.” SKY express, as part of its summer flight program, recently announced a slew of direct flights to strategic holiday destinations bolstered by enhanced interconnectivity and strong alliances which contributes significantly to the country’s tourist traffic.
“Greece is a destination to which many Australians feel very connected, and we’ll work closely with our trade partners to make it easier for travelers to access,” said Patricio Aylwin, Regional Managing Partner, AirlinePros Australia. “With border restrictions easing and travel opening up, there is pent-up demand in our large Greek community to reconnect with family and friends, and for holidaymakers to indulge in those stunning destinations full of history, culture and great people.”
A multi-awarded airline, which also boasts the country’s youngest and greenest fleet and one of the most environment-friendly in Europe, has many initiatives promoting sustainable aviation including the ‘green gates’ which has captured the imagination of fliers.
