As of May 19, 2022, Delta customers flying from North America will be able to take one of Delta’s daily, non-stop flights to Athens, and then travel to one of the unique destinations covered by SKY express – Greece’s youngest and greenest air fleet, as well as one of Europe’s most environmentally-friendly carriers.
The partnership marks another milestone for SKY express, offering even greater opportunities for North American travellers and a connection to the largest network of Greek and Cypriot destinations covered by SKY express.
Through strategic agreements with global carriers such as Air France, KLM, Qatar Airways, American Airlines, Cyprus Airways, Condor, El Al and Middle East Airlines, as well as Transavia and Emirates, SKY express aims to further increase demand and upgrade the quality of the Greek and Cypriot tourist product.
“Greece is one of the most sought-after destinations this summer for American travellers and, with trade and tourism flows increasing between our countries, Delta’s partnership with SKY express gives our customers more versatility when it comes to planning the perfect getaway,” said Delta Air Lines Alliances and International Senior Vice President Perry Cantarutti.
“Customers will be able to hold a single Delta ticket and check their bags from North America all the way to their final destination,” he continued, “providing customers with a seamless service to some of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean.”
For his part, SKY express Commercial Director Yiannis Lidakis noted that “the agreement with Delta comes as a result of systematic work and discussions and makes us very happy.
“It is based on the combination of the youngest and greenest fleet and an unrivalled network that will allow travellers across the US to connect to the magical charm of Greece and Cyprus.”
