Blue Air has announced that it will begin direct flights to Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport from Larnaca Airport this summer, In-Cyprus reports.

“We are committed to develop our base in Liverpool to meet everyone’s expectations and I am confident that this route is an important step in strengthening our position within north-west England.”

Blue Air has two aircraft based at Larnaca Airport.

Meanwhile, Cypriot low-budget Cobalt carrier this week announced its first flight to Tel Aviv in Israel would take place on March 26.
