New Cyprus Airways – Paris route January 27, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in News Flights.

Cyprus Airways (CY) yesterday announced a new route Larnaca-Thessaloniki-Paris, which the airline said would increase their passenger traffic to France by 36 per cent on.

CY already carries out direct flights to Paris but the new route via Thessaloniki will provide an additional 13,000 seats each year to the French capital. France is the third biggest route for CY after the UK and Greece.

The new route will operate twice a week on Tuesdays and Sundays while a third day, Thursday, will likely be added from April this year for the summer season.

CY says the new route will benefit businessmen, tourists and students and passengers from Cyprus will have the option of spending time in Thessaloniki.

The ceremony to launch the new route was held in Paris, where CY general manager Christos Kyriakides forecast that the new itinerary would prove beneficial to the company, which is struggling to return to the black.

Kyriakides said the company expected next month to hear from Brussels whether the government, the airline’s main stakeholder, could go ahead and guarantee a multi-million loan to help the company restructure.
