New Airline Based In Cyprus

Sun Feb 10, 2013 3:41 pm

A millionaire has announced the creation of a new airline in Cyprus that will be based in Paphos. No further announcements have been made yet, other than the main hub, PFO, and that it is going to be a small airline but efficient and it will not be seasonal.

I think the obvious markets are the UK and Russia.

Thoughts?

Ah Shiakolas... duhh... who else.

If he really wants to enter the aviation market why not take over Cyprus Airways and fix it? Anyway the government is desperate enough and the last time I checked one share of CY was worth €0,01.

I guess he knows that Ryanair will leave Paphos once the government subsidies dry out.

That would actually make sense!

Well after reading the articles in Greek it seems that they will be some sort of charter airline. Like I said, I doubt the government of Cyprus will have the cash to pay Ryanair so why not establish an airline after they are gone? Someone will have to carry these passengers.
