Start-Up airline Cobalt Air has announced a new twice-weekly service between Larnaca and Germany’s largest airport Frankfurt/Main. The new route will be served every Wednesday and Friday and commenced on November 1, 2017.
“I am delighted that Cobalt Air is now flying to Frankfurt Airport, Germany’s busiest and most important airport, from Larnaca,” said Andrew Madar, CEO, Cobalt Air. “Cobalt Air has quickly become the preferred airline of the Cypriot people and we can’t wait to show them our great welcome and on-board service as they start their holiday or business trip from Frankfurt to Cyprus.”
“We are very happy to welcome Cobalt Air here at Frankfurt Airport. The connections offered by Cyprus’ largest airline are an excellent addition to the route network here at Frankfurt into a very popular Mediterranean destination. We wish Cobalt Air many happy landings at FRA,” said Anke Giesen, Executive Director Operations, Fraport AG.
On the new route, Cobalt Air is competing with Lufthansa, Condor, Small Planet Airlines and Condor. All other carriers offer seasonal flights between Larnaca and Frankfurt.
Additionally, Cobalt Air will launch six flights a week from Larnaca to London Gatwick and twice-weekly flights between Paphos and Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport.
Cobalt Air commenced operations in July 2016 from Larnaca International Airport. Currently the largest carrier of Cyprus operates a fleet of 4 A319 and 2 A320. One A319 is operated for the German leisure carrier Condor. The airline serves 16 destinations across 10 different countries from its Larnaca and Paphos bases in Cyprus.
