Aegean Airlines to launch Larnaca – Tel Aviv direct flights
With the start of the summer 2015 schedule, Aegean Airlines (Greece), a Star Alliance member, boosts its network and its presence in Cyprus. Aegean will begin daily non-stop flights between Larnaca and Tel Aviv on 29 March 2015, adding significant capacity and options. It is the first time the company connects Larnaca with Tel Aviv, taking advantage of the deregulation of traffic rights to this destination. In addition the company reinstates on 31 March 2015 and two years after their disruption, its direct flights from Larnaca to Kiev, Ukraine, 3 times a week. All flights will be operated with Airbus A 320 aircraft.
It is worth noting that Aegean’s 2015 schedule includes a network of 134 destinations in 42 countries and Greece with 15,000,000 available seats, 2 million more seats than in 2014. The flights will be performed with one of the youngest fleets in Europe, comprising 56 aircraft, after Aegean´s recent investment in new additional Airbus A320ceos.
CEO, Mr Dimitris Gerogiannis, stated: “The strategy for our growth from Cyprus continues, investing in the quality relationship we have established with the Cypriot market. The launch of direct flights from Larnaca to Tel Aviv represents another important step towards the implementation of our company’s strategic plan. At the same time, these new flights will support business growth and the increase of tourism to Cyprus.”
