Commenting on this schedule, Madonna Hoyek, chief commercial officer, Cyprus Airways, said, “After a very busy summer and a positive booking demand for this Winter, we are planning well ahead to meet the expected high demand for summer 2023. As air travel continues to fast recover and expected to reach pre-Covid levels next year, we are aiming to match this demand by offering more destinations, frequencies, and seats to our customers at the best value for money prices.”
Paul Sies, CEO, Cyprus Airways, added, “Our summer 2023 flight schedule offers a good mix of established and new routes. We are keeping our commitment to proven routes like Athens, Tel-Aviv, the Greek Islands and Beirut whilst exploring new markets like Cairo, Yerevan, and others that will be announced soon. This schedule continues to show our strong commitment to the Island’s connectivity and to the local economy and tourism industry by offering a total of over 430,000 seats over the summer period. I am happy to note that together with local and international stakeholders and in close collaboration with the Deputy Minister for Tourism and Hermes, we will soon be announcing at least five new destinations that will be added to next summer’s network.”
