Fitur 2024, which is the most important tourism exhibition in Spain and one of the most important in the world, especially for Latin American countries, due to the fact that Madrid is a transit hub for tourist flows to and from Europe, was attended by the President of the Santorini Hoteliers Association Antonis Pagonis, who had the opportunity to meet and exchange views with representatives of the airlines Vueling, Iberia and Volotea in the context of their efforts to expand their schedule with new flights to Santorini.

Furthermore, Antonis Pagoni participated in the conference organised by the Latin American Agents Association in Europe in the framework of Fitur 2024, given that this is one of the most dynamically developing markets internationally, especially in expensive and very expensive travel.
