Cobalt Air, the Cyprus airline that innovates dynamically

This company that started as a “realistic dream”, is growing with prudence, contemplation, planning. It dares, foresees, perceives, opens horizons for the passenger (both tourist and   businessman), “takes off” the wise programming, with which the Cypriots always proceed.

The Cypriots are enterprising with their new company, a company with international capital and extremely flexible management. The Chairman of the Board of Directors, Gregory Diakos, briefly, but comprehensively, outlines the aims and objectives of the company, showing the "future" of the airline with much clarity. From his own perspective, the CEO, Andrew Madar, refers to the technical achievements and the compliance of the company with the international safety standards of IOSA.

Because it seems that quality is the trademark of the company, along with the planning of its course and the courageous planning of gradual enterprising.

A unique example of multiculturalism and content is the quarterly brochure issued by Cobalt, which, in 102 pages, shows the size of the project, uniting Cyprus with mother Greece by virtue of content.

The editorial team writes about traveling in Greece, sports, tourist investments in Cyprus, the network, its expansion, traveling to major cities, Greek and Cypriot artists, the unique Father Paisius of Mount Athos and his work.

What is of primary importance is the Cobalt Air network from Cyprus (Larnaca and Paphos) to Athens, Thessaloniki, Chania, Heraklion, Mykonos.

To London Gatwick, Manchester, Paris, Dublin, Tel-Aviv, Madrid, Frankfurt, Zurich, Geneva, Beirut, Moscow, Copenhagen and very soon China.

Indeed, China is providing the company the opportunity to soon hire a Chinese-speaking cabin crew in order to spread its wings towards the Great Power.

At the same time, we believe that its ultra-modern fleet will also include the appropriate aircraft to fly at this range.

This company that started as a "realistic dream", is growing with prudence, contemplation, planning.

It dares, foresees, perceives, opens horizons for the passenger (both tourist and businessman), "takes off" the wise programming, with which the Cypriots always proceed.

We, who have been involved in air travel and mass tourism internationally, for more than 40 years, wish great expansion, business success, strength, consistency, continuity, love for the "work" which the "overall" Cobalt Air team performs, that will ultimately benefit all types of passengers and will establish it as an airline pioneer Internationally.
