Minoan Air S.A., also known as Μινωικές Αερογραμμές, is a Greek airline headquartered in Heraklion, Crete, founded in September 2011. One of the key people is George Mavrantonakis, co-founder of Sky Express, former Chief Operating Officer and Accountable Manager of Olympic Airlines and former Advisor to the President of the same airline. The company's first base was Heraklion International Airport. In June 2012 Minoan Air based an airliner in Spain (in either Burgos Airport or León Airport) to operate charter flights for Spanish tour operator Good Fly.
In July 2012 the company started operating all-year round flights from their base in Heraklion to Kos andRhodes and seasonal flights to Mytilene and Santorini. In October/November 2012, the airline wet-leased one of their aircraft to Flyglinjen. In January 2013, Minoan Air announced it would open two new bases outside of Greece, London Oxford Airport on 4 March 2013 and Lugano Airport on 29 March 2013. Minoan flew from London Oxford to Dublin and Edinburgh until 04 August 2013, while flights to Rome-Fiumicino and Vienna have been operated from Lugano. In September 2013 it has been announced that all flights to and from Lugano have been terminated.
