Such figures fill us with confidence to continue improving our performance, especially by increasing our load factors,” said Paul Sies, Chief Executive of Cyprus Airways.
“We have just started operating our Summer flight schedule. At its peak, we will be flying to 19 destinations with over 60 return flights per week, offering over half a million seats for sale this summer. Sales of our summer flights are steadily selling out and we are looking forward to a busy summer to service our customers”, commented Capt. Andreas Georgiou, Chief Operations Officer of the Airline.
“A few days ago, we started operating to our new destinations of Dubai and Cairo, two important destinations for us as they fit perfectly with our strategic plans to improve Cyprus’ international connectivity. Next month we will continue expanding our connectivity by operating to the European hubs of Milan, Zurich, Prague and Basel with a multiple weekly schedule. We are proud to be the island’s flag carrier and a promoter of the Island and its growing economy”, added Mr Sies.
