Cobalt to Athens

A new twice-weekly service between Gatwick and Athens is being launched on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 31 March by Cyprus’s largest airline, Cobalt Air, as it further bolsters its European route network.

It will be the second Gatwick route for the carrier, alongside its existing six-times-a-week service to Larnaca. Both routes are operated with two-class Airbus A320 aircraft offering Business Class and Economy.

Cobalt CEO Andrew Madar said: “We are delighted to have this opportunity to widen our footprint in European aviation and start direct London-to-Athens services at the end of this month.

“The travelling public has taken the relatively young Cobalt brand and its ethos to its heart. Our presence in Athens is strong due to our services to Larnaca and Paphos from there so we are excited to bring more competition to the London – Athens route.”

The Gatwick – Athens route will feature Cobalt’s newly-developed Business Class product, featuring large bespoke seats with 40in pitch in a 2+2 configuration. Cobalt will become the only airline offering a Business Class cabin on the route.
