Cyprus Airways, a Cypriot airline based at Larnaca International Airport, and Romanian carrier Blue Air have entered into a codeshare partnership. The agreement allows the airlines to sell tickets under their own flight codes, offering more travel options to their customers.
Starting on December 3rd, Cyprus Airways’ customers will be able to fly from Larnaca to London Luton, Athens, Thessaloniki and Bucharest through the codeshare agreement with Blue Air.
In turn, Blue Air will place its flight code on Cyprus Airways flights to Athens, Thessaloniki, Prague, Tel Aviv and Beirut. Other routes may be added in future.
Cyprus Airways, the former flag carrier of Cyprus, ceased operations in 2015. Following the airline’s bankruptcy, the Cypriot start-up company Charlie Airlines Ltd, in which the Russian S7 Airlines holds 40% as a joint-venture, acquired the right to use the Cyprus Airways trademarks and operate under the brand.
