About

Olympic Airlines

With the intent of further expanding the success of Olympic Airways we introduced on Thursday, April 19, 2007, Olympic Airlines, a subsidiary company of the Olympic Air Virtual group. The goal of Olympic Airlines is to improve the quality of fun and the support it offers to its pilots with all the additions which were implemented throughout the rest of the group. This will help us bring our VA closer to “as real as it gets” without forgetting the even more important fun factor!
