Paul Sies, CEO of the airline, said that “we clearly see that the market continues to steadily recover and at this rate, we expect that next year we will reach and exceed the pro-Covid percentages.”
He also said that “we make a commitment to facilitate trips to and from the island” and expressed pride because Cyprus Airways is the only airline in Cyprus serving the Cypriot market throughout the year.
He added that the most popular trips during the third quarter were to/from Athens, Beirut, Tel Aviv, and Yerevan.
“We have invested over 50 million euros to be in a position to add two Airbus320 to our fleet” and pointed out that 11 destinations with at least 43 scheduled flights are already for sale.
