Our deepest condolences

Theodoros Vasilakis, flew yesterday towards his great journey, saddening the entire tourism and aviation family of our country.

The Founder and Chairman of Hertz AutoHellas and Aegean Airlines, leaves behind a large gap and his enormous legacy, not only in our national tourism industry, but in other segments as well. It is widely accepted how tremendously significant his contribution has been to strengthen tourism. A truly insightful and visionary man, he was one of the first businessmen who realized the significance of tourism for the Greek economy and throughout his business life he worked tirelessly to promote it, through his field of business. With the appropriate strategy plan and decisive steps, Aegean Airlines’ contribution to the increasing international arrivals in our country has been of great importance. A strategic plan, that Theodore Vasilakis and his family envisioned and designed, and for which all of us in the business world of Greece feel grateful and proud of, at the same time. During these difficult years for our country, Theodore Vasilakis and his family have continuously inspired us by showing that we need to believe in our strengths and capabilities of our country and those of each one of us.

The members of the AFW team wish to express our deepest sorrow and our condolences to his family and the hope that the path and achievements of Theodoros Vasilakis will set the example upon which we shall continue building the future of our country.
