The first Internatinal routes were flown in 2001 when the airline joined forces with Cronus Airlines.

In the following years, Aegean Airlines considerable increased its fleet and developed codeshare agrements with Lufthansa, TAP Portugal, and Brussels Airlines.

The airline joined the Star Alliance in mid 2009, becoming a full member the following year.
