Cobalt Air yesterday inaugurated a new Airbus A320 daily service between Heathrow Airport and Larnaca – re-establishing a link last served by the former Cyprus Airways in 2015.
The addition of the Heathrow on 27 March makes it a hat-trick of London airports for expanding the expanding Cypriot carrier, which is already established at London Stansted Airport and Gatwick Airport, plus Manchester Airport in north west UK.
Departures to Larnaca from Heathrow also offer convenient onward connections to Cobalt’s Abu Dhabi, UAE services – on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Cobalt Air chief executive officer, Andrew Madar said: “Cobalt is already Cyprus’ largest airline, offering flights to over 20 destinations from the island. We are delighted to be extending our network further with a daily service between Heathrow and Larnaca.
“At Cobalt, we offer great value and service in our economy cabin and large bespoke seats plus dine-on-demand catering in our business cabin.”
Heathrow director of airline business development, Simon Eastburn said: “This daily service gives passengers more choice and greater opportunity to fly to this popular short-haul holiday destination. We hope passengers enjoy the fantastic choice of dining options and services we offer in Terminal 3.”
Cobalt became a member of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) in December and now serves 21 destinations and 12 countries from its home in Cyprus.
