HISTORY

InterIsland Airways S.A. is an Aviation Services Company utilizing Fixed and Rotary wing Aircraft.

It is focused on delivering to its Customers Aviation Services of the Highest Quality, in a friendly, personal and cost effective way. 

Safety, Best Value for money and Customer satisfaction are our basic priorities.

The brainchild of an OLYMPIC AIRWAYS B737 Captain at that time, Michael Poulikakos, InterIsland Airways was set up to make the helicopter experience, aircraft ownership and training Safe, Available and Affordable. Michael combining his aviation passion and entrepreneurship became the driving force behind InterIsland Airways S.A.


Following its inception InterIsland Airways S.A enjoyed a year on year growth and expansion even during the recent recession.
Launched in 1997 by Michael and a pilot friend Vassilios Pitoulis InterIsland Airways S.A acquired the first aircraft, a Britten Normal Islander, from KAL Aviation of Athens Greece.

The company under KAL Aviation’s AOC started operations immediately. The S/N 2004 SX-DKB Islander was used for Island hopping, carrying tourists and connecting the Aegean Islands of Mykonos, Paros, Naxos, Santorini and Skiathos with the Athens International Airport Helliniko.

Expanding operations in 2008 as a joint venture with KAL, a daily cargo run was also added in the company’s services.
As a result of successful operations a  Britten Norman Trislander was also added to our fleet to meet the increasing demand.
Michael was the one who inspected and gave the green light for the purchase of the aircraft. The Trislander (S/N 1054) was internally fitted with long range fuel tanks giving it a twelve hour range.  Michael flew it from Harrare to Athens with stops in Entebbe (Uganda),  Chartoum (Sudan), Luxor (Egypt) then on to Athens during a four day ferry flight that lasted 32 hours.

Seeing an opportunity in the helicopter market, in 1999, an agreement was reached with George Legakis, owner of the first R 22 helicopter in Greece and first Robinson Helicopter Dealer.
In 2000 Michael, George, Vassilis and Elias got together and ordered the first R 44 Clipper I (SX-HTN) helicopter in Greece that was delivered in April.

In May 2001 InsterIsland Airways S.A acquired a second Trilander (S/N 1055).

InterIsland Airways S.A, was totally acquired by Michael after 2002,  concentrating in the Helicopter business, offering quality training, maintenance and after sales support to the new Robinson helicopter pilots and owners.

Interisland Airways received CAA approvals for Flight Training, Aerial Works, CAMO and Subpart “F” maintenance organization.
