Blue Air to expand Cyprus' flights

Blue Air is looking to expand its presence in Cyprus with new flights from Larnaca to Luton, as well as direct flights from Larnaca to Tehran and Tel Aviv.

According to recent press reports the Romanian airline plans on bringing a second aircraft to be based at Larnaca Airport. Blue Air high-ranking executives met with a senior officer of the Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation Department on Thursday and had an extensive discussion on the procedures that need to be followed to acquire a Cyprus air operator certificate.

Blue Air seems to have a special interest in direct flights to Russia, particularly after the latest developments in the Russian market. Procedures to establish a direct flight from Larnaca to Iranian capital of Tehran are already underway, with Tel Aviv in neighbouring Israel also on the list.

Direct flights to Luton Airport will commence on April 25, 2016 with prices expected to be as cheap as €34.95 for a one-way flight, including taxes.

Blue Air has recently achieved the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) accreditation, for top level service and operational efficiency in safety.
