Today the Cypriot national media has published a story about Cyprus Airways that reveals the airline’s latest plans.
Cyprus Airways has been flying uninterrupted throughout the pandemic and will be continuing to do so with the announcement of a new Summer schedule that is set to feature new destinations as well as "new Mediterranean interconnectivity".
The Cypriot national flag carrier has understandably faced the same situation as many national flag carriers dealing with the demands of COVID-19 and its impact on international travel. COO George Mavrocostas, a well-known and respected figure within the airline industry and a reference point for the hospitality sector in Cyprus said:
"We understand our importance to the local economy and are proud of the fact that while most countries have left their planes on the ground we continued to fly and serve the nation. The upcoming announcement on our Summer schedule and expanded destinations will give comfort to the many stakeholders in the Cyprus hospitality industry and we look forward to playing our role in supporting tourism moving forward as we have always done.”
As reported by the Cypriot media, the company has been at pains to protect its valuable workforce of over 100 staff, and has used the most severe periods of the pandemic for strategic planning, capacity-building, training and upskilling of the team, while continuing to operate essential flights.
A pioneer in the Cypriot travel industry, Cyprus Airways is the national carrier brand and has its operating base at Larnaca International Airport. Cyprus Airways was awarded for its efforts to enrich local tourism during the last Cyprus Tourism Awards. Cyprus Airways is appreciative of the international effort to make travel easier, coordinated, and safe with initiatives like the digital green certificate that would allow EU citizens who have been vaccinated, tested negative or recovered from Covid-19 to travel more freely within the EU.
