When asked about the choice of venue, John Platanias the General Manager of A.P.G.

Approximately 100 people were welcomed by Dr. J.

Both gentlemen made a brief presentation on the progress made by their respective companies.

Maersk Air with its daily operation from Copenhagen to Athens and one of the most modern fleets in Europe, coupled with the excellent service provided by the well trained flight crews and ground staff has established a firm foothold both in the Greek and Danish markets.
