Expansion Blue Air Fleet at the Larnaka Base
On July 3rd, 2017 Smart flying airline Blue Air, welcomed its third aircraft in Cyprus, which was added to its fleet at Larnaka International Airport 'Glafcos Clerides'. The need for airline development and increase in the number of Blue Air’s routes operated from Larnaka, is driving the carrier to expand and establish itself as one of the major airlines based in Cyprus.
Direct flights from Larnaka offer even more destinations, bringing them even closer to our travellers. Blue Air operates regular flights to Athens (14 times per week), Thessaloniki (5 times per week), London-Luton (4 times per week), Birmingham (3 times per week), Liverpool (2 times per week), Bucharest (7 times per week), Cluj-Napoca (4 times per week) and Tel-Aviv (4 times per week).
The event was held at ‘Diner Onair’ café-restaurant at Larnaka International Airport, where guests had the opportunity to watch the water arch salutation upon the arrival of the aircraft. Addresses followed by the Chief Executive Officer of Orthodoxou Aviation, the Chief Commercial Officer of Blue Air, the Chief Executive Officer of Hermes Airports and the Minister of Transport, Communications and Works.
Blue Air’s Chief Commercial Officer Mr Constantinescu, stated that «We are excited that today marks the addition of our third based aircraft at Larnaca Airport. Back in 2015 we have made our first step on the island starting to fly to Athens and Thessaloniki mostly serving Cypriots for their leisure and business travel purposes. It was just the beginning, since then we grew constantly, supported by our very professional fellow Cypriot colleagues to become a reputable brand and a model for newcomers. It is our pride to be a support pillar for the ever-growing tourism industry in Cyprus by adding further new routes to our 61 direct and indirect destinations out of Larnaca or by increasing the frequencies on the existing ones. Our value proposition for Cyprus is and remains a safe, reliable, comfortable and inexpensive product, delivered to the highest international standards as certified by IOSA (IATA Operational Safety Audit)».”
In a statement, the Chief Executive Officer of Hermes Airports, Ms Eleni Kaloyirou, congratulated Blue Air on strengthening its operational base in Cyprus and stressed the fact that "for Hermes, Blue Air is a key partner as well as a strategic partner". For nine years, she noted, «Blue Air trusts and relies on Larnaka Airport whilst Larnaka Airport trusts and relies on Blue Air, respectively»."
