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.
