Larnaca launch by Cobalt

A six-days-a-week operation linking Gatwick directly with Larnaca in Cyprus has been launched by the island’s largest carrier, Cobalt Air, with the company’s CEO, Andrew Madar, hosting the inaugural flight.

Cobalt is keeping up the momentum next month with a new Business Class service on the route, featuring large bespoke seats in a 2 x 2 configuration, which it says will bring “a new level of business comfort” to the operation. On Wednesday, it also began service between Cyprus and Frankfurt.

Cobalt currently serves 16 destinations across ten countries from its home in Cyprus and was globally recognised as the best start-up airline of 2017 at an international awards ceremony in London last month (BTN 23 October).

At the inaugural, Madar said: “Cobalt has quickly become the preferred airline of the Cypriot people; and we can’t wait to show our great welcome and on-board service to our passengers from London to Cyprus.

“At Cobalt we know the value of reliability, competitive pricing and a genuine focus on customer care. We are genuinely different. Not Legacy, not LCC, just Cobalt.”

Gatwick head of airline relations Stephen King added: “We are delighted to welcome Cobalt. This service is likely to be especially popular with business travellers, particularly as the airline offers some impressive fares and an attractive Business Class service.”
