Olympus Airways is a Greek charter airline offering ACMI-leasing, charter and ad-hoc flights headquartered in Athens.

History[edit]

Olympus Airways secured its Air Operators Certificate (AOC) from the Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (HCAA) in 2015. The company commenced operations with a single Boeing 737-500 in October 2015 offering charter flights between Greece and Germany.[1]

Olympus Airways has since grown its fleet to consist of 3 Airbus A321-200 aircraft. Two of which were acquired from the demise of UK airline Monarch. [2]. Olympus Airways lease their aircraft to other airlines on an ACMI wet lease basis. They have operated for the TUI Group in 2018, Tunisair in 2018 and Vueling in 2016. They have also operated for other airlines including VietJet, Congo Airways.

Their main office is based in Athens but base their aircraft in Antalya, Turkey where they have a maintenance facility.
