Olympic Airways

Olympic Airways is the national airline of Greece.

Founded by Aristotle Onassis. It was the first airline to have scheduled flights to five continents. After a point it was acquired (?) by the Greek government.

On December 8, 1969, an Olympic Airways DC-6B crashed near Athens, Greece during a storm killing 93 people.

It is one of the safest (in terms of crashes) airlines worldwide. Currently the Greek government is negotiating the sale of the 51% of the company.
