Gatwick, Heathrow and Stansted one airline to Cyprus

With perhaps the exception of British Airways, whose Cityflyer offspring does have limited weekend services out of Stansted, Cobalt Air has become the first airline to operate out of London’s three major airports.

Cobalt will introduce a daily two-class operation from Heathrow to Larnaca on Tuesday 27 March.  It already offers daily services to the main Cyprus airport from Gatwick and Stansted.

Andrew Madar, Cobalt Air CEO, commented: “I am delighted to add London Heathrow to our UK network which is a key market for Cyprus Tourism and Business.  Cobalt has quickly become the preferred airline of the Cypriot people; and we can’t wait to show you our great welcome and on-board service as you start your holiday or business trip from London to Cyprus.”

Following collapse of Cyprus Airways (no connection), Cobalt Air first flew in June 2016 and is now the largest operator at Larnaca Airport serving 22 destinations in 13 countries in Europe, Russia and the Middle East.  Its current fleet comprises of six A320 series aircraft.

Andrew has been in the aviation industry since 1985 qualifying as an aerospace engineer from the University of Washington Seattle.  Following a spell at Boeing he has worked extensively in China including the COMAC product.  Commercial director Paul Simmons is ex-easyJet and Flybe.
