Our rating:
Advantages of Olympic Air are the diversity and quantity of destinations and direct flights to destinations in Greece. The fleet is well maintained. It is also possible to select a seat and check in online.
Disadvantages of Olympic Air are the seat pitch in economy class on long distances. Not too much legroom although direct European competitors offer more or less the same seat pitch.

Olympic Air is a good but average airline. No extraordinary performance but a decent airline with good service. Olympic Air has many flights to destinations in Greece.
