Abstract

Transportation has always been closely connected to the development of a region. Technological advancements as well as the increase of the available income has set the fundamentals for more effective ways of transportation. At the same time, tourism flourishes and more people travel around the world. To accommodate this additional demand, airlines introduced several strategies; among others, the Low Cost Carrier (LCC) business model has played a disruptive role. At the same time, road transport operators started to implement several strategies, some of which are inspired from the airline sector. Road transport operations, mainly undertaken by coaches, introduced several strategies to address the evolving demand. This paper presents a wide overview of the Greek road transport sector and its related legal framework. The review aims to identify and discuss the best practices, introduced by the airlines, and fruitfully apply them in the context of the road transport sector.
