Universal Aviation, has expanded its coverage in Europe with the opening of Universal Aviation Greece – Paros. The location, which began operations last week, is Universal’s third in Greece along with its Mykonos office which opened last year and its Athens headquarters, which has existed since 1993 and provides supervisory ground support to the entire country.
The Paros operation serves the island, which has become one of Greece’s most popular tourist destinations with local, dedicated staff directly supporting operators.
“Traffic to Paros has been growing steadily for years, but since the pandemic, it surged to new heights, with pent-up demand making demand for slots, parking, and services even more challenging,” said Yiannis Arkoulis, MD for Universal’s Greece operation.
Adolfo Aragon, the SVP noted that based on booking and trip inquiries Universal expects traffic to Greece to exceed last year’s record-setting volumes. “We’re aggressively expanding throughout the Mediterranean to meet this pent-up demand and enhance our customers’ ground experience at congested and challenging destinations like Paros,” he said.
