Aegean Virtual - The Best Service around!

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!

Awesome! @NeperQiell our Head of Recruitment should be in contact with you quite soon 🙂

Staff Update!

Unfortunately, our COO, @MathAviation7, has had to resign from Aegean Virtual as a cause of increased obligations and not having a lot of free time available anymore to fulfill duties. We thank him for all he has done for the VA and we look forward to working with him as a pilot.

This obviously left a gap as COO, but don’t get excited - we pick our staff internally. And for the COO position, @NeperQiell, who was our Head of Recruitment prior to this, will take over COO duties and will be a part of the staff team along with @Pascal2910, our Events Manager, and @Q-ENAN, our Chief of Development. Everything in the VA is back to normal as always and we are still going strong!

Interested in joining? Apply here!

Happy “OXI” Day! 🇬🇷


Aegean Virtual would like to wish all its Greek members and others celebrating a happy “Ohi” day! Today, we remember the 28th of October 1940 and the sacrifices made for this country, as well as the standing up and initial defeat of the axis forces.

@Thomas_G you like that? ;)
