Hello,i own a small airline based in Athens,Greece called "Thermos Airlines".At the time i own 2 ATR-210 aircraft while leasing another ATR-210 and a Bombardier CRJ-900LR.
The owned turboprops operate flights from Athens to small Greek airports,Tirana,Sarajevo,Izmir,Burgas doing quite good.
The leased ATR operates flights from Thessaloniki to small Greek airports plus Tirana and Belgrade (just started but seems good).
The real problem is the CRJ,at first i tried flights to major cities in Europe which had no connection with Athens or were connected with 1-2 flights/day.I tried Naples,Venice,Toulouse,Marseile,Stansed etc but the aircraft has max 15/76 pax in economy.
I would like to mention that before croudon i tried nicosia server with a fleet of 737 and again the aircraft had really low pax number.
What is your advice?
Should i try next, ATH to really busy airports like LHR,CDG etc with low prices or should i try flights from Thessaloniki to other airports in Europe without connection?
Thanks in advance
