AEGEAN received the Fast Travel Gold Award from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) for its innovative and flexible solutions to simplify and speed up the passenger experience. AEGEAN is the 11th airline in Europe to receive the Gold Award.
IATA’s Fast Travel Program addresses passenger demands for more choice, convenience, and control through self-service options in the areas of: self-check-in (including automatic check-in); bags ready-to-go; document check; flight re-booking; self-boarding; and bag recovery.
