Singapore Airlines<.> has been chosen as the official carrier for Greek athletes and officials heading to Sydney for the 2000 Olympics. An official announcement from the Greek Olympic Committee is expected soon.
A bid by Manos and Singapore Airlines submitted in a competition was deemed the best and most economical.
A total of 124 people will be transported to Sydney via Perth and another 144 direct to Sydney while special meals are to be prepared for athletes.
We are honoured that Singapore Airlines has been chosen as the official carrier of the Greek team and believe the decision was based on our ability to guarantee seating, the firm`s frequency of flights and the top service offered, Singapore Airlines` sales manager for Greece, Panagiotis Dimitriou said.
The carrier was also chosen by Spain and Germany to transport their teams while it will fly some of France, Belgium and Denmark`s athletes to Sydney.
