Aegean has quickly stepped in to pick up the business previously with Cyprus Airways, after its major shareholder, the Cyprus Government, decided to allow the carrier to go bankrupt. (See BTN 12 January Cyprus Airways grounded)
As of 30 March the airline will base two Airbus A320 aircraft at Larnaca, while the number of destinations connected directly with Cyprus will increase to 14 spread over eight countries.
Aegean is focusing on the direct connection of Cyprus with Western Europe and plans to introduce flights to Heathrow, Milan, Munich, Paris and Rome. At Heathrow there will be a daily T2 outbound at 20:45 arriving 03:15 locally.
The airline is also increasing the flight frequency to Athens, improving connectivity through its whole extensive network.
Once traffic rights are sorted out Aegean plans to offer flights from Cyprus to Beirut, Kiev and Tel Aviv. Aegean is to acknowledge benefits already accrued by Cyprus Airways regular travellers. www.aegeanair.com
