Olympic Cargo

Cargo flights maintain a long tradition in the history of aviation. The purpose of the first civil aviation flights was to carry cargo and mail, long before passenger flights. Cargo pilots enjoy the privilege of the unconditional freedom that aviation offers and a special relationship with the aircraft he flies without having to worry about passenger needs. It is the same relationship that will drive them to their limits, should it become necessary by the moment. The cargo pilot will deliver his cargo, even under the most difficult occurrences. The cargo pilots are often called "red eyes" as cargo flights take place during the night most of the times.

Olympic Cargo as a subsidiary of Olympic Air Virtual Group was inaugurated on March 2006 by a small group of friends that loved to fly cargo worldwide. Their main goal is to maintain a high level of professionalism, without neglecting the need for having fun.

Olympic Cargo today maintains a long roster of active pilots and a fleet of cargo planes ranging form the Beechcraft 1900C to the Boeing B747-400LRF, covering airports as small as the ones situated at the Greek islands and as big as busiest international cargo hubs.

If you wish to experience cargo flights like never before and feel ready to face all the challenges presented, Olympic Cargo welcomes you.
