New Delhi, Jan 16, 2023: RateGain Travel Technologies Limited (RateGain), a global provider of SaaS solutions for travel and hospitality, announced today that SKY express has selected AirGain for accurate and real-time competitive pricing insights as it looks to expand its footprint across Europe. The fastest-growing airline in Greece and one of the most dynamic in Europe aims to continue to lead the development in the aviation sector locally and accelerate its international growth with accurate pricing insights that help in being more competitive in real-time.
SKY express today operates the largest network in Greece (34 destinations), while it covers throughout the year 8 international routes including London, Brussels, Rome, Paris, Milan, Munich, Sofia and Cyprus. The Greek airline has also brokered significant interline agreements with global airlines such as Air France, KLM, Qatar Airways, easy jet, Delta, Emirates, American Airlines, Air Transat, Condor, etc.
According to a recent report by Eurocontrol, a pan-European air traffic management company, the airline had the largest increase in flying operations across Europe in 2022. Specifically, SKY express showed an 162% increase in traffic this year compared to 2019 levels with 119 daily flights, which puts the company in the first place among all European airlines.
As airfares increase and airlines cut routes, SKY express wanted to offer the most competitive prices across all fare types. AirGain was able to provide the necessary data on all fare families, making it the preferred provider over other fare intelligence providers in the airline industry.
AirGain will help SKY express monitor critical OND routes 80% faster, allowing the airline to respond promptly to market shifts and deliver the most cost-effective service. Designed for revenue managers, AirGain will enable them to set accurate pricing and seize daily opportunities for growth.

With the presence at 34 Greek airports, on top of an ever-increasing network of international routes – reliable, scalable, and affordable market insight plays an important role.
