Cyprus Airways has shed light on its revised summer 2020 flight schedule following the Cypriot Government’s announcement regarding the reopening of Larnaca and Paphos airports on June 9, 2020.
The two airports are only opening up to a select list of countries that have been given the green light by the Government.
This summer, Cyprus Airways is planning to operate flights to five airports in Greece, including Athens, Thessaloniki, Heraklion, Rhodes and Skiathos. In Europe, Cyprus Airways will be flying to two hubs in Switzerland – Zurich and Geneva.
Athens services will kick off on June 9, while the rest will launch at the beginning of July.
Chief operations officer, Cyprus Airways, George Mavrocostas enthused: “We are very excited that after three months of paused operations due to COVID-19, we will soon and gradually restart operations to several destinations.
“As a Cypriot company we feel it is our duty to support the Government’s efforts to overcome the challenges during this difficult time, contributing to the rapid and sustainable recovery of the economy. The safety of all, passengers and staff, has always been our top priority and thus we adopted a number of safety measures,” Mavrocostas added.
In order to guarantee safe travels, the Cypriot carrier has introduced measures to ensure the health and safety of its passengers and employees. Some of these, among many others, include the disinfection of aircraft after each flight and protective face masks and gloves for crew. Face masks/coverings are now mandatory for all passengers, and middle seats on aircraft will be kept empty where possible to reduce contact and risks.
