The new acquisitions take Tus Airways’ fleet to four with one Fokker 100 jet and three Saab 2000 aircraft which each provide 50 passenger seats.
A “FAVOURABLE” JET
According to Fokker’s official website, the Fokker 100 is a popular aircraft due to its, “favourable operating expenses and substantial revenue potential [which] combine to make the economics of the Fokker 100 very compelling.”
The new jet joining the Tus Airways fleet can carry up to 109 passengers.

For its 2017 summer schedule, Tus Airways is scheduled to provide flights between Larnaka and the following destinations; Tel Aviv and Haifa (Israel), Rhodes, Samos, Kefalonia, Kos and Skiathos (Greece).
Flights from/to Pafos, Tel Aviv and Haifa are also included within the summer 2017 flight schedule, as are flights from Haifa to Athens, Rhodes and Kos.
