From LGTS Thessaloniki to LGPA Paros

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Once Olympic Airlines was Greek´s biggest airline and flag carrier. Today, after the merger with Aegean, Olympic Air (as it is named now) is Aegean´s subsidiary and degraded to just a regional carrier.

With temperatures in Greece up to 104°F for the last few days, people flocked to the beaches for refreshment. Here´s a planeload of heat-suffering citizens of Thessaloniki heading to the beaches of lovely Paros onboard Olympic´s Dash 8-100 (Olympic have 2 Dash 8-100s and 8 Dash 8-400s in service).

So let´s join the flight. Hope you enjoy.
