Athens Airways was a Greek regional airline,[4] headquartered in Koropi, Athens.[5] The airline used to connect Alexandroupoli, Athens and Thessaloniki with some Greek islands, as well offering chartered flights.[6] The airline was founded in 2008 and launched scheduled flights on 31 January 2009.[7][8]

In late May 2010 the Greek Civil Aviation Authority stripped Athens Airways of the right to serve a number of government-subsidised routes. Thιs was due to unexplained delays and cancellations by Athens Airways.[9] Later that year, by early September[specify] and after concluding its summer schedule, the airline ceased operations without any notice.[10]
