Blue Air has announced that from January 19 it is opening a new operational base in Cyprus, operating flights Larnaka-Athens and Larnaka-Thessaloniki and return to serve Cypriot travellers.
The new flight schedule of the Romanian low-cost airline includes flights to the two Greek cities as follows:
- Seven flights per week for Athens (Monday – Sunday)
- Three flights per week for Thessaloniki (Tuesday – Thursday – Sunday); these frequencies are expected to increase according to the airline.
It is worth highlighting that the existing route to Bucharest remains the same (three weekly flights), but Blue Air intends to increase its network from Cyprus to other destinations. The detailed flight schedule is available on the Blue Air’s official website.
The airline’s development, spurred to add new destinations, materialised in a dynamic presence in the aviation space both on the island and in Europe, offering very affordable prices to Cyprus passengers.
Blue Air customers and tourism agencies will be served by Orthodoxou Aviation, Blue Air’s representative in Cyprus.
Tudor Constantinescu, commercial director at Blue Air, stated: “We want to thank the Cypriot travellers who have trusted and supported us over the past seven years for our flights Larnaka – Bucharest. We, in turn, to reciprocate this love and trust, are giving the opportunity to Cypriot passengers to travel cheap and safe to other destinations, starting with Athens and Thessaloniki and we are simultaneously contributing to the creation of new jobs. With seven years of presence in the Cyprus market, we feel that Cyprus is our home.”
Antonis Orthodoxou, managing director at Orthodoxou Aviation, added: “It is with mixed emotions that we welcome the development of Blue Air flights to Athens and Thessaloniki. The new data created in the aviation sector in the Cyprus market after the unpleasant developments with our national carrier, imposed initiatives to cover the large and important vacuum that resulted.
“Cyprus is an island and the presence of network connection is necessary as far as possible both for the travel needs of the public and the economy of the island. We are positive that the public will trust us and will fly with Blue Air as it has since 2008.”
