Sky Greece Airlines operates scheduled flights to various destinations in Greece, including Heraklion, Santorini, Mykonos, Preveza, Corfu, Rhodes, Chios and Athens. Its fleet consists of ATR42, ATR72 and JS41 aircrafts.
Founded in 2012, the airline was started by a group of Greek-Canadian entrepreneurs, as well as a retired priest. The majority owner of the company is Toronto-based restaurateur Ken Stathakis. The company also has an office in Vancouver, BC. Its mission is to connect the Greek diaspora with their homeland through direct, year-round flights between Canada and Greece.
Its founders, management and employees care deeply about their passengers. However, shortly after launching its scheduled international service in May, SkyGreece suffered financial setbacks and was unable to continue operating with the limited resources at its disposal.
Despite this, the company is trying to find a solution for its current crisis and will do everything in its power to resume its operations as soon as possible. SkyGreece is urging all passengers to keep calm and remain patient as the Company works to resolve the situation as quickly and safely as possible.
The Canadian-based company launched its first flight in May of this year with the goal of connecting Canada to Greece. The airline operated with one aircraft. Since then, it has been plagued by delays and cancellations. In August, a crack in the cockpit window caused a plane to be grounded and forced the airline to cancel all its flights. This left hundreds of people stranded abroad.
