London hat-trick for Cobalt

A new enhanced Business Class offering, including dine on demand, joined the line-up from Heathrow last week as Cypriot carrier Cobalt Air brought in its new daily service to and from Larnaca.

The addition of Heathrow means the rapidly-expanding airline has a hat-trick of London airports, with operations already out of Stansted and Gatwick in addition to Manchester.

Commercial director Paul Simmons said: “Cobalt is already Cyprus’ largest airline, offering flights to more than 20 destinations from the island, and we are delighted to be extending our network further with this daily Heathrow – Larnaca service.”

Cobalt is using the Airbus A320 with 12 Business Class seats and 144 in Economy on the route, which re-establishes a link last served by the former Cyprus Airways in 2015. The new Business Class product has a 2+2 configuration with a 40in pitch. Seat pitch in Economy is 30in.

Heathrow – Larnaca was the second launch for Cobalt last week, with the airline also inaugurating twice-weekly all-Economy services for the summer between Copenhagen and its home base.

Copenhagen Airport director of airline sales Morten Tranberg Mortensen said: “We’re delighted to welcome this exciting new and expanding carrier here at Scandinavia’s largest airport.”
