Cyprus Airways in agreement with Greece’s Sky Express

Cyprus Airways has signed an agreement with the Greece-based carrier, Sky Express.

The agreement, which came into effect this September, will offer more travel opportunities to Cyprus Airways passengers as they can continue their journey from Athens or Thessaloniki to other destinations in Greece on the same ticket.

More specifically, passengers who fly with Cyprus Airways flights to Athens or Thessaloniki can now continue their journey to 29 airports in mainland Greece and the Greek islands with Sky Express flights.

This new agreement allows passengers to travel across Sky Express’ network with the convenience of a single ticket reservation. Passengers can book their trip only via their travel agent for the time being.  Bookings through cyprusairways.com will be possible in the near future.

Destinations served via Athens are 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 are Corfu, Chios, Samos, Mytilene and Skyros.

“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,” stated Natalia Popova, Chief Commercial Officer of Cyprus Airways.

Commercial Manager of Sky Express stated: “The new interline agreement with Cyprus Airways is a key factor to continued aviation growth to maximize 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”
