Blue Air welcome third aircraft at Larnaka International Airport


Blue Air welcomed its third Cyprus-based aircraft on July 3, adding it to its fleet at Larnaka International Airport.


The need for airline development and route increases from Larnaka drove the Romanian carrier to expand and establish itself as being among the island’s biggest and most active airlines.


An event celebrating Blue Air’s new aircraft was held at the ‘Diner Onair’ café-restaurant at Larnaka Airport, where guests had the opportunity to view the water arch salutation upon the plane’s arrival.





Chief Commercial Officer at Blue Air, Tudor Constantinescu, commented: “Back in 2015 we made our first step on the island, flying to Athens and Thessaloniki mostly serving Cypriots for their leisure and business travel purposes.


“It was just the beginning. Since then we have constantly grown, supported by our very professional fellow Cypriot colleagues to become a reputable brand and a model for newcomers,” added Constantinescu.



“It is our pride to be a support pillar for the ever-growing tourism industry in Cyprus by adding further new routes to our 61 direct and indirect destinations out of Larnaka or by increasing the frequencies on the existing ones,” continued the Blue Air CCO.


“Our value proposition for Cyprus is and remains a safe, reliable, comfortable and inexpensive product, delivered to the highest international standards as certified by IOSA (IATA Operational Safety Audit).”




CEO at Hermes Airports, Eleni Kaloyirou, congratulated Blue Air on strengthening its Cyprus base and stressed the fact that “Blue Air is a key partner as well as a strategic partner,” adding that “for nine years, Blue Air trusts and relies on Larnaka Airport whilst the Airport trusts and relies on Blue Air, respectively.”



Kaloyirou, continued: “From our side, as Hermes Airports, I would like to reassure Blue Air, as well as all our business associates and partners, that we will continue to be on your side and support you with all our strength.”




Blue Air currently operates 14 weekly flights to Athens, five weekly flights to Thessaloniki, London-Luton (four weekly), Birmingham (three weekly), Liverpool (twice weekly), Bucharest (seven weekly), Cluj-Napoca (four weekly) and Tel-Aviv (four weekly).
