Eurocypria, whose fleet comprises three A320-type planes leased from Cyprus Airways, was established in March 1992 with the intention of earning a share of the market in charter flights to Cyprus. It enjoyed government protection for a number of years, as Cyprus Airways is state-owned. However, it did not achieve the success its creators had hoped for.
Loizidis admitted that outlays for Eurocypria have risen significantly. He said he hoped that discussions with tour operators would end this year and that this would mark a period of active, planned expansion. `The basic idea is for the company to operate in Greece also and gain a larger share of the European charter flight market,` Loizidis said.
Cyprus Airways has held talks with Boeing and Airbus in view of plans to upgrade its fleet, which comprises four 15-year-old A310 planes that fly to Heathrow. It is expected they will be replaced by larger aircraft.
