The move reflects Saudi's growing popularity with Greek tourists
Saudi Arabia’s Elaf Group has signed an exclusive cooperation deal with Aegean, Greece’s national carrier.
A growing leader in the Middle East travel and tourism industry, Elaf is a general sales agent (GSA) for major airlines and operates its own chain of three-, four- and five-star hotels.
The newly signed agreement will see the company take on the commercial representation of the Greek airline in Saudi Arabia, where it has been operating scheduled flights since 2015 and is gradually increasing its presence.
Currently Aegean operates three weekly flights to Jeddah throughout the year and three weekly flights to Riyadh during the summer season.
However, Aegean expressed its intention to increase the number of scheduled flights both to Jeddah and to Riyadh after boosting its fleet with Airbus A320/321neo aircraft it has on order.
Aegean’s plans for the Saudi market includes the addition of a morning connection to Riyadh, increased frequencies to Jeddah and to Riyadh and the launch of a new Athens-Damman route.
