Greek shipping firms ANEK<.>, ANEN, DANE, LANE and NEL have agreed to sail under the common flag of cooperation in the Aegean.

The lines, whose representatives met recently, aim to establish new routes in the Aegean, strengthen their position regarding the services they currently operate and increase profits through economies of scale.

Their plan involves proposals for docking at Turkish ports and establishing new links via sea travel between Turkey and the Greek islands.

The five firms hope to set up a unified computerised booking system whereby one type of ticket is issued through a central body, likely to be based in Piraeus, possibly by next year.

They also intend to stage joint promotions at international travel fairs and undertake common sales campaigns. Furthermore, the lines plan to expand their existing services.

ANEK and NEL are set to work together in the Adriatic, especially considering the latter`s recent buyout of Med Link Lines.

The firms operate a combined fleet of 25, though this number is set to rise to 31 next year, and serve 35 ports.
