On the 23rd of October 2013, we acquired Olympic Air; as a result, passengers are now provided with increased flight frequencies and connections as well as improved accessibility to Greece’s islands, including some of the more remote.
As an outcome of our efforts, in 2017 we transferred 13,2 million passengers, 6% more passengers than in 2016. In 2017, we were named “Best Regional Airline in Europe” at the Skytrax World Airline Awards in a survey conducted among over 19,9 million passengers. This award – which we have been honored with for the 7th successive year and 8th year in total since 2009 – is a further confirmation of the high quality of service we offer to our customers, who have shown their trust in us and made us their number one choice.

Energean Oil & Gas
Energean Oil & Gas (LSE:ENOG) is an independent E&P company focused on developing resources in the Eastern Mediterranean, where it holds 13 licenses and operates assets with a production track record of more than 37 years.
Energean started its operations by acquiring the Prinos licenses, offshore North East Greece in 2007, containing just 2 mmboe of audited 2P reserves at that time. Ten years later, the Company had created a balanced portfolio of production and development assets, totaling 51 mmboe 2P reserves in Greece, and 1.7 TCF of natural gas 2C resources and 45.9 mmbbls of oil 2C resources in both countries. In addition, the Company is committed to realizing the significant growth potential emerging from its development and exploration projects, such as the Karish and Tanin fields, offshore Israel and other license blocks in Greece and Montenegro.
Israel is one of the world’s most rapidly growing natural gas market as gas demand increased by an average 15.5% from 2006 to 2016. Consumption increased further to 10.4 BCM in 2017. According to NSAI’s Competent Persons Report (CPR), Energean’s flagship development fields, Karish and Tanin contain 2.4 TCF of natural gas (2C) gross resources and 32.8 mmboe of light hydrocarbon liquids.
Energean is also producing from the Prinos and North Prinos oil fields as well as the South Kavala natural gas field, offshore NE Greece and employs 393 (excluding sailors, subcontractors etc.) dedicated and highly-skilled professionals. According to Netherland Sewell & Associates, Inc.’s (NSAI) Competent Persons Report (CPR), Energean has 39.5 million barrels of oil and 6 BCF of natural gas (2P) reserves and 22.9 million barrels of oil and 5.3 Bcf of gas classified as contingent (2C) resources in the Prinos basin fields in Greece, as of 31 October 2017.
In addition, the Company has significant development and exploration potential in the licenses held in Israel, the Adriatic and Western Greece, which provide the basis for future organic growth.
In Greece, Queenco had for many years been the only casino in the island of Rhodes, while next to it is situated a five-star hotel, in the building of the “Roses Palace”, on the island’s northern coast.
This magnificent building at the end of the port of Rhodes, which was built in 1925, has a glorious history that is also connected with the State of Israel. On January 12th 1949, the State of Israel and the Arab states opened a conversation under the auspices of UN mediator, Ralf Bunche, which ended on July 20th with Syria’s signing of the agreements.
The casino and the hotel are a major attraction in Rhodes, where you can combine history, relaxation, a meal at the beachfront garden restaurant and of course the highlight: have fun with a gambling element at the grand casino, which is bustling and bustling every evening.
