Aegean Virtual - The Best Service around!

Welcome to the official thread of Aegean Virtual

Since Aegean Virtual last closed down for modernization, we decided to make big, big changes within the VA. The new Aegean aims to become one of the best Virtual Airlines within the VA scene. Within the new Aegean, you will find the ideal environment for pilots that have the freedom to fly whenever they want, wherever they want.

Aegean Virtual’s First Event!


%CE%A3%CE%B1%CE%BD%CF%84%CE%BF%CF%81%CE%AF%CE%BD%CE%B7

Aegean Virtual is truly back with a bang! To celebrate our re-opening, we will fly from Thessaloniki in northern Greece across the Aegean islands and the Cyclades, enjoying the beautiful scenery and eventually landing at Santorini, probably the most well known Greek island of them all. A volcanic island with mountainous regions, amazing beaches and breathtaking views, Santorini has plenty to offer!

To reserve a gate, simply comment on our thread below!

We operate Generic liveries. Our fleet consists of the Olympic fleet (Dash-8, A340, B747) and the Aegean one (A319, A320, A321) as well as the CCX. Till now, liveries have unfortunately been pending.

If you want to see these liveries, you can vote on their respective Features topics!

Just a week after our overhaul, Aegean Virtual is thriving in our new environment! We’ve had the pleasure of welcoming lots of new pilots to our ranks, all of which have fit into VA life very well and are actively logging flights.

We are also considering adding special offers to our pilots to “celebrate” the end of summer!

Presenting…Something New…

Aegean Virtual’s Airport of the Month is Here!

Every month we will select a small Greek airport to feature in our Airport of the Month! What does this mean? Basically, all pilots will have access to all routes to this airport and each flight there will count as double time! Our goal is to discover all of Greece’s hidden gems.

So what airport do we have, you ask? Presenting September’s Airport of the Month…

Samos

LGSM - Samos Aristarchos International Airport!

This airport is well known for its very difficult approach for Runway 09, probably the hardest in Europe! Just check it out its charts, and you will see what we mean! Aegean Virtual services it with flights from Athens and Thessaloniki, operated by Olympic Air’s Dash-8. The island of Samos is home to multiple UNESCO World Heritage sites and is a pleasure to discover! It is also known well for its wonderful beaches and its excellent wine production! It is also, as the airport name states, it is the home of the philosopher Aristarchos of Samos!

Our pilots decided to head to LGSM today and were amazed by the scenery and this approach! Here’s a picture of a few of our Dash-8s parked after a flight from LGTS.

Proud to have welcomed our 20th pilot to our ranks yesterday, capping off a great re-opening until now! We’re thriving and are having great fun flying all over Greece and discovering new places!

If you are looking for a great, supportive yet professional VA, there’s no need to look any further than here!
