Tree Planting by Olympic Air
On Sunday, February 20th, 2011 Olympic Air in collaboration with the plant-a-tree.gr organization, implemented an 1814 tree planting program, in the area of Kalivia Attikis.
In December 2010, the frequent flyer program of Olympic Air, TravelaIr Club, launched a successful Internet Christmas contest "Light Up Your Tree".
Olympic Air was committed then, that for every Christmas tree that was fully lit in the competition, a real tree will be planted!
After the completion, of the "Light up your tree" competition, 1814 Christmas trees were 'lit up'.
So on Sunday, officers and employees of Olympic group, along with their families and friends, took action in an effort to boost reforestation of the burnt areas in Kalivia region of Attica.
The purpose of this action for Olympic Air is both the regeneration of degraded ecosystems and also the awakening of environmental consciousness of the public.
Mr. George Efstratiadis, Deputy CEO of Olympic Air and General Manager of MIG said: "Today we fulfilled the commitment we had given, by implementing the tree planting program in order to improve the ecosystem of the region and protect the environment. Olympic Air will take more initiatives in the context of corporate social responsibility. "
