Cronus Airlines was established in 1994 by Ret.Air Force fighter pilot Captain Theodore Kokmotos, started operation in 1995 with a single aircraft that flew flights targeting expat traffic between Greece and Germany as well as chartered flights to popular tourist destinations. Two years later, Cronus leased more aircraft and expanded its network, gradually becoming the largest privately owned airline in Greece. In late December 1998, the Laskaridis family who own a large fleet of refrigerator ships, acquired a controlling 55% stake in Cronus. In spring 2001, a code-share agreement was signed with Aegean Airlines and a few months later Cronus' aircraft were painted in Aegean's livery carrying an AEGEANCronus logo. Eventually, Cronus was fully acquired by Aegean in October 2001 and its owners obtained a minority share in Aegean.
Cronus Airlines operated scheduled services from/to the following cities:
In general terms, flights to London, Paris and Rome were operated from Athens, while those to Germany were mostly continuations of the domestic flights to Salonica, therefore passengers from Athens to German destinations would fly to Salonica and then remain on the same plane for the leg to Germany. There were also flights between Stuttgart and Kavala.
