The flight was only and hour and a half, but it was fine. They even served a hot meal which included dessert. I would certainly use them again. The staff was friendly and efficient.

Actually the ticket was for an Aegean flight to Malta but the airline that solicitated the actual flight was Olympic Air. The flight attendants were extremely helpful and eager to cater for any of our needs always with a smile. The pilot was really professional and landed the two-propellered plane so light that no one felt the landing.

We flew Olympic Air from Athens to Rhodes and back to Athens in September '18. The flights were great both ways. The departures/arrivals were on time, the plane (with Aegean markings) was new and clean, the seats were sufficiently spacious, and the staff were attentive. I would be delighted to fly with Olympic/Aegean again.

We flown just to a little island, there are not many options anyhow, the flight was just over 30 minutes, and they even served free soft drinks on board. On the return our flight was canceled due to technical reasons, they gave us good service and rebooked us on the first flight on the next day. They took care off...

After a horrible experience from volotea airline, I was surprised to find such amazing hospitality from another regional airline in Greece! The staff is polite Snacks are unlimited FREEE ( for some reason some airlines charge you for simple water too) I highly recommend Olympic especially if choice is between Olympic and volotea

Quick efficient service. Left ahead of schedule; arrived ahead of schedule; doors opened immediately and received baggage within ten minutes. Best service of a two month trip through France, Italy and Greece. Aprox $100 per seat with no baggage or other fees. Served a sandwich and wine. UNBEATABLE!

The crew was excellent, food and drinks served right and free of charge, the aircraft even arrived 20 minutes ahead of time, exactly for passengers to reach the bus schedules for other cities. Definitely recommend it

We flew JTR to ATH on a DHC plane with 3-3 configuration. The flight was only 45 minutes on Olympia Air, a subsidiary of Aegean Airlines. Santorini airport was cramped even at end of season. There was insufficient seats while waiting for departure. The plane was clean and comfortable. We were offered a beverage and biscuits on board. Flying to...

It was a 1 hour flight, but incredibly uncomfortable. They fly at 7:00 am, so you have to be at the airport at 5 am (4:30 am if you are returning a car). The attendants know how uncomfortable it is, so they do their best to calm everyone down for an hour. Expect screaming babies, tempers flaring, and lots of...
