How to use the Athens Subway

The Athens Subway has been a long-desired dream come true. Finally, Athens has the subway that we are all proud of. It is the quickest and most trustworthy public transportation mean and it can compete with any other European subway. It was completed in 2004, right before the commencement of the Athens Olympic games and connects the gateways El. Venizelos Athens international airport, Piraeus port and the city center.

The Athens Subway is modern, clean and above all it hosts some very important archeological findings. Riding the subway is like visiting a museum, since all the archeological artifacts are exhibited in showcases at the stations where they were found during the extraction.

Olympic Air takes off on October 1st 2009


For us in Greece Olympic Airways, Olympic Airline or Olympic Air is Olympic. Typically speaking, because that’s what really counts, on October 1st 2009, our Olympic, will be Olympic Air.

For the history, on April 30 of this year, Marfin Investment Group (MIG) signed definitive agreements for the acquisition of certain assets of Olympic Airlines and Olympic Aviation Services, and today, five month later, Olympic Air is ready to commence its aviation activities.

Within this short time-frame, a new airline was created. Anyone can understand that this could be done only by dedicated, committed and hard working people, to be exact 5,000 people. These people work for Olympic Air, the aviation company, Olympic Handling, the ground handling and cargo services company and Olympic Engineering, the maintenance, repair and overhaul company.
