284,000 Passengers Travelled with Cyprus Airways this Summer

Cyprus Airways concluded a very successful summer season, having recently celebrated two years of operations. The Cypriot air carrier transferred a total of 284,000 passengers from Cyprus and abroad, between March – September 2019, with two aircrafts type Airbus A319, 144 Economy seats.

Since its launch the company adopted a strategic approach of gradual and steady growth to achieve its long-term goals to promote Cyprus as a tourist destination and broaden travelling options for locals. This summer season’s positive results validate this approach, as the company continues to develop having laid a strong foundation in the last two years.

Greek destinations – Athens, Thessaloniki, Heraklion, Skiathos, Rhodes – seem to be the preferred option for Cypriots, while flights to and from Tel Aviv, Prague, Bratislava and Kosice have been increasingly popular, affirming the company’s strategic rationale for the development of its flight schedule. More specifically, according to the Cyprus Statistical Service, there’s an increased percentage of arrivals from Israel (20%), Czech Republic (24%) and Slovakia (21%), results that showcase Cyprus’ potential as a tourist destination from these countries.

Mr. George Mavrocostas, Chief Operations Officer of Cyprus Airways, expressed the company’s satisfaction for this results and pointed out the importance of exploring new markets, such as Slovakia, to broaden and expand incoming tourism. “As a Cypriot airline our operations are interconnected with one of the main development sectors of the local economy, tourism. For this reason it is crucial to support local air carriers to overcome challenges caused by geopolitical issues, to survive against fierce international competition, and to further develop in order to contribute to the Cyprus economy”, commented Mr. Mavrocostas.

For the upcoming winter season, Cyprus Airways will continue its flights to and from Athens, Thessaloniki, Tel Aviv, Beirut, Prague and Heraklion. Soon the airline will announce its new flight schedule for the next summer season, that will begin in March 2020, servicing popular routes as well as exploring new markets to promote Cyprus as a tourist destination.
