We had traveled to Santorini from Athens by Ferry but decided to take a flight back to Athens. As such we opted for Olympic Air OA 359 (currently run by Aegean Airlines) which A320. We did online checkin 2 days prior to our travel. We were worried as the same flight on Monday was cancelled possibly due to bad weather....

We booked a flight to Athens with Olympic. Why? Reasonable prices, good departure times, reasonable bagage rules. Common sense. The best however was yet to come during the booking. Meal preferences were asked? Meals? Preferences? That's been a while? In european short haul anyway! On top of that, flight attendants KNEW our preferences inflight! On top of that the meal...

This was a short flight but it was also very cramped. The service was excellent. There needs to be a better way to deal with carry bags.

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.
