First flight for new airline in Cyprus

Cyprus’ Cobalt celebrates official inauguration
Marking the start of a new era for Cyprus’ aviation industry, new low-cost carrier Cobalt recently had its official inauguration ceremony at Larnaca International Airport.
A special reception followed the inauguration for a select group of guests comprising of individuals from Cyprus’ political, business and media circles.
Cobalt’s first scheduled flight, to Athens, took off as planned last week. Flights to the UK and other European destinations are scheduled to begin later in June.
By the end of the month the carrier plans on incorporating three further aircraft to its fleet. This will boost the total number to four Airbus A320s and A321s. More planes are planned later in the year and in 2017.
The airline forecasts that by July it will be offering services to Athens, Thessaloniki, Heraklion, Hania, London, Manchester, Dublin and Paris, with more destinations to follow.
Flag carrier Cyprus Airways, established in 1947, ceased operations in January 2015.
