The Olympic Airlines Workers’ Cultural Center, (POL.K.E.O.A) organized an event on December 8, aiming at promoting the historic space of Hellinikon airport, and the necessity of establishing an Aviation Museum and raising awareness on the subject.
“Greece is the only country in the EU that does not have an Aviation Museum, even though it has 83 years of commercial air transport history.
Thirteen years after the Greek airport of Hellinikon closed and 10 years after the Olympic Games, it is time to make the Aviation Museum a reality,” stated the event invitation.
On Monday, December 8, 2014, the Olympic Airlines Worker’s Cultural Center celebrated the 41st anniversary since the first flight of Onassis’ Jumbo 747 (SX-OAB). The event will include a reenactment of this flight.
In 2011, the Olympic Airlines Worker’s Cultural Center presented to the public over 20,000 exhibits that had been gathered over the years, as well as aircraft, which could potentially be displayed in the Aviation Museum.
