Hermes Airports welcomes Ryanair continued expansion in Cyprus

Hermes Airports has welcomed the ongoing expansion of Ryanair’s flight operation in Cyprus after the airline recently announced the addition of new routes for its winter operation 2019/2020 from Paphos airport where it maintains a base.

Maria Kouroupi, Senior Manager Aviation Development and Communication of Hermes Airports said: “The new expansion of Ryanair in Cyprus reaffirms the airline’s trust in the tourist product of Cyprus and confirms the effectiveness of the strategic agreement in place since 2012 between Hermes Airports and the airline.”
