During April the airline operated 371 flights (April 2022: 158 flights) and improved its load factor by 22 percentage points. Compared to 2019, before the start of the pandemic, Cyprus Airways carried 59 percent more passengers on its scheduled services and operated 45 percent more flights.
“In April we started operating to Dubai and Cairo, two important hubs that complement our strategic plans to improve Cyprus’ international connectivity. This helped us to continue our trend of outperforming both last year and 2019 by achieving passenger growth figures month on month. This month we will continue expanding our connectivity with multiple weekly frequencies to the European hubs of Zurich, Prague and Basel whilst Milan will be serviced as from June 01”, said Natalya Milovanova, chief financial officer, Cyprus Airways.
“We have shown that we are not an opportunistic carrier, but our services are intrinsically tied to the Cypriot community. With a dedicated team of people, great network, good frequencies, and two additional new generation aircraft joining the fleet, Cyprus Airways is making sure to be the best value carrier to and from the Island”, added Paul Sies, CEO, Cyprus Airways.
