Germania unveil why “perfect” Cyprus is ideal for its passengers
Providing flights to Cyprus from seven German cities, Germania is among the island’s biggest contributors for inbound tourism. A Spokesperson representing the carrier provides us with an exclusive insight into its services to Cyprus.
CT: Since launching flights to Cyprus, how have Germania’s services to the island grown?
Germania has been flying to Cyprus since 2015. We flew to Larnaka first, but then decided to offer services to Pafos, connecting the city with seven German cities.
Specifically, Germania will be providing flights to Pafos from Berlin until October 29 (every Wednesday, Sunday), Dresden until October 25 (Wednesday), Dusseldorf until October 30 (Monday, Wednesday, Sunday), Hamburg until October 29 (Wednesday, Sunday), Munich until October 31 (Tuesday, Thursday), Nuremberg until October 29 (Wednesday, Sunday), and Stuttgart until October 31 (Tuesday, from May 4 until June 22 and from September 22 also on Thursday).

CT: Why should travellers flying to Cyprus choose Germania for their trip?
A holiday to Cyprus with its Mediterranean climate is just a short flight away (3.5 hours from Berlin) and thus an attractive destination for European travellers. Germania wants passengers to relax and look forward to their vacation during the flight. Therefore, we still offer free service onboard; a hot meal, as well as soft drinks and magazines.
Germania does not want its passengers to worry about anything extra, such as making bookings for their baggage. All passengers have at least 20kg baggage allowance and free transportation for specific ‘bulky’ baggage, such as buggies, beach shelters and beach umbrellas.
CT: Why do you believe Cyprus is a great all-year-round destination for German travellers to visit?
With its cultural heritage, beautiful beaches and the Mediterranean atmosphere, Cyprus is the perfect place to combine a summer holiday by the sea with culture and excursions.
Across the island, there are numerous historic sites that are worth a visit; the mosaic decorations at the House of Dionysos, Pafos which dates back to the third and fourth century AD is one example.
This year there’s also an additional reason to travel to Pafos: The city is a European Cultural Capital for 2017. Pafos has a huge cultural programme on offer – for example open air concerts, exhibitions and many more exciting events.

Besides the many places to visit for beach enthusiasts and culture lovers, Cyprus is also increasingly becoming a destination favoured by athletes. Many cyclists, for example, appreciate the road conditions and bike tracks, as well as the low traffic levels and cloudless sunshine.
In winter Cyprus is also worth a visit; the Troodos mountains (about 1,951m above sea level) for example, offer four kilometres of slopes for skiing enthusiasts. Germania can also transport sports equipment for a fee allowing travellers to bring their own bike or skiing gear.
CT: Are there any upcoming developments that travellers and the Cyprus tourism industry can expect from Germania?
Germania will continue to fly to Pafos during the 2017-2018 winter season with a seasonal adjusted flight programme. Flights to (and from) Pafos will be available from Berlin, Dresden, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Munich, Nuremberg and Stuttgart.
