Cyprus Airways recently inked an interline agreement with the Greece’s Sky Express.
Effective immediately, this new agreement between the two carriers will offer Cyprus Airways’ passengers more travel opportunities, allowing them to continue their journey from Athens or Thessaloniki to 29 other destinations in Greece and the Greek islands that are in Sky Express’ network. This can be done with a single ticket reservation.
Destinations served via Athens include Astypalaia, Santorini, Syros, Mykonos, Heraklion, Zakynthos, Paros, Karpathos, Ikaria, Kithira, Skiathos, Chios, Milos, Naxos, Corfu, Kos, Kefalonia, Alexandroupoli, Mytilene, Samos, Lemnos, Ioannina, Chania and Kalymnos. Destinations served via Thessaloniki include Corfu, Chios, Samos, Mytilene and Skyros.
Chief commercial officer, Cyprus Airways, Natalia Popova commented on the news: “We consider our partnership with Sky Express a landmark for Cyprus Airways’ strategy to diversify our services with the aim of offering our passengers more travel opportunities. What makes this specific collaboration important is the fact that we successfully connect Cyprus with 29 more airports in Greece and the Greek Islands through Athens and Thessaloniki with a single, convenient one-stop-shop experience.”
Meanwhile a spokesperson from Sky Express declared: “The new interline agreement with Cyprus Airways is a key factor to continued aviation growth to maximise the passenger’s benefits and our expanded route network. It is also of paramount importance not only for the Greek economy but also for its contribution to sustainable tourism development. For this reason, Sky Express has incorporated interline agreements into its strategic objectives, early on its first day of operations.”
