Greece’s Aegean Airlines and Singapore Airlines are discussing a partnership that will see flights to the Far East and Australia from Cyprus.
Phileleftheros reported that Aegean Airlines and Singapore Airlines have agreed to operate flights to Singapore, Australia, and Thailand which will include just one stopover in Athens.
At present the majority of travellers between these destinations usually have to go through lengthy stopovers at airports across the Middle East such as Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Dubai before connecting with another flight.
Should these new reported routes go through passengers flown with Aegean Airlines to Athens’ Eleftherios Venizelos Airport will make a short stopover before Singapore Airlines flies them direct to their final destination.
Singapore Airlines will fly out from Athens three times-a-week while officials from Aegean Airlines and Singapore Airlines are soon expected to travel to Cyprus to unveil the new travel packages between Cyprus, Thailand and Australia.
This announcement comes soon after China Eastern Airlines are reportedly looking into operating direct flights between Shanghai and Larnaka.
