British Airways is doubling the frequency of daily flights from Larnaca to London Heathrow Terminal 5, from seven to 14 a week.
A key feature of the airline’s summer 2016 schedule for the Larnaca-Heathrow Terminal 5 route is an even more affordable economy return fare as well as a reasonably priced one-way fare.
Commenting on the updated schedule was commercial manager – Cyprus and Greece, British Airways, Freddie Stier: “London remains high on the list of travel destinations for Cypriots, both for business and for pleasure. Our enhanced schedule offers travellers from Cyprus numerous opportunities to take a break to one of the most vibrant cities in the world, home to well-known landmarks, endless shopping, and an exciting arts and theatre community. The additional flights and our new economy fares also allow customers to combine their travel arrangements to London with a multitude of other locations.”
Stier continued: “It’s no coincidence that the doubling of British Airways’ flights to Larnaca comes at a time when the Cyprus Tourism Organisation has announced a projected increase in the number of tourists expected to visit the island this year. With the prevailing instability in the wider region, Cyprus continues to stand out as a destination that ticks all the boxes for UK holidaymakers, from its golden sandy beaches to its rich history and cultural heritage.”
Meanwhile, the carrier’s flight schedule from Paphos to London Gatwick (five flights per week) has already resumed, pushing the total number of weekly flights to and from the island to 19.
