By Journey to Greece on December 10, 2015

Did you know that AEGEAN was honoured with the Skytrax World Airline award, as the best European regional airline in 2015? AEGEAN won this award for the 5th year in a row already – one of the reasons why Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG®) decided to take a closer look at Greece’s largest full-service airline.

As you know, air travel and hospitality are naturally linked to one another and strong partnerships betweenStarwood Hotels & Resorts and various airlines help us to enhance our members’ overall journey. We have established a solid and large airline partner portfolio over the past years and will continue to grow our network constantly.

With 11 properties in Greece under The Luxury Collection, Westin and Sheraton brands, Starwood Hotels & Resorts has the largest presence in the market for an international hotel group. AEGEAN, a Star Alliance member is expected to expand to 149 destinations in 45 countries in 2016. Given our mutual strong presence in that market as well as in key markets like France, Germany, UK, US, Spain and Italy, it was a logical step to combine our forces.

Today we announced our new exciting partnership, bringing a selection of exclusive benefits to our award-winning loyalty programs – Miles+Bonus and Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG®). SPG members can now convert their Starpoints into AEGEAN Miles+Bonus award miles.
