Germania and Sky Express sign codeshare

Germania and Greek airline Sky Express have signed a code share agreement. The two airlines will work together to carry passengers to and from the Greek islands. Every Monday and Thursday, from 4th May, Germania will fly to the Greek capital from Bremen, and from Nuremberg from 12th June 2017. Sky Express will transport passengers to onward destinations within its network, on either the same or the following day. Destinations from Athens include the 14 Greek islands of Crete (Heraklion and Sitia), Santorini, Mykonos, Karpathos, Skiathos, Paros, Kythira, Ikaria, Zakynthos, Chios, Astypalaia, Syros, Naxos and Milos.

Germania will use an Airbus A319 (150 seats) and Boeing 737 (148 seats) to transport passengers from Bremen and Nuremberg. Sky Express will then use ATR42 (48 seats) turbo-prop aircraft for onward journeys.

“The codeshare allows both airlines to combine their strengths”, said Karsten Balke, Germania’s CEO, upon signing the agreement. “For many years, passengers have experienced Germania’s reliable and comfortable service to Greece, and now the airport hub in Athens offers many more possibilities for onward journeys.”

Sky Express’s CEO, Niki Karagoule, highlighted the added value for passengers. “Thanks to the codesharing, we can offer holidaymakers from Germany the opportunity to enjoy individual tailor made holidays on a variety of Greek islands. This cooperation is fully aligned with Sky Express’ strategy to strengthen its network and enhances the sustainable touristic growth of the Greek islands.”
