More flights at Paphos, Wizz Air sets up base in Larnaca



July signals a busier time for Paphos Airport which, having welcomed its first commercial flight after a three month coronavirus-imposed lockdown on June 22, is stepping up gear as more airlines schedule flights.

Meanwhile, Wizz Air flights to Larnaca were given a water arch welcome to mark the airline’s decision to make the airport a permanent base.

Today, four arrivals and four departures are scheduled at Paphos Airport — two from Poland, one from Liverpool and one from Tel Aviv.

According to the initial scheduling during the month of July Paphos is expected to welcome flights from some 20 countries.

However, the situation remains fluid because of the epidemiological situation in destination countries and these plans could change.

According to the initial scheduling, as reported by CNA citing sources from Hermes Airports, the following destinations are planned in July:  Armenia (Yerevan) Belgium (Brussels) Estonia (Tallinn) Germany (Berlin), Greece (Chania, Mykonos and Thesaloniki), Poland (Gdansk, Katowice, Poznan and Warsaw), Romania (Bucharest) Russia (Moscow) Slovakia (Bratislava), Ukraine (Kiev) Czechia (Prague), UK (Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Bournemouth, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Luton, London Gatwick and London Stansted), Netherlands (Amsterdam and Eindhoven), Hungary (Βudapest), Israel (Tel Aviv), Ireland (Dublin), Italy (Milan and Rome), Jordan (Amman), Lithuania (Kaunas) and Latvia (Riga).

The flights will be offered by Ryanair, Tui Fly Belgium, Easyjet, S7 Airlines,  and Τui Airways, the news agency added.


Meanwhile, Larnaca Airport today gave a water arch welcome to Wizz Air flights to mark the airline’s decision to make the airport its 28th base and boost it with a third airplane.

Wizz Air will start regular flights from Cyprus on July 1 to the following 11 destinations in 7 countries with 37 flights a week (to be introduced gradually): Athens, Thessaloniki, Copenhagen, Billund, Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden, Salzburg, Suceava, Wroclaw, Dortmund, Memmingen, Turku.

A new Airbus A320 will join the fleet on August 1, 2020, enabling the start of five new routes from Larnaca to Paris Beauvais, Eindhoven, Prague, Gdansk and Heraklion as well as the increase of frequency of the airline’s existing Athens route.
