The new services are set to operate from Paphos and Larnaca, with the addition of six new routes
Airport operator, Hermes celebrated the launch of Ryanair’s most expansive summer schedule in Cyprus last week (June 1), which comprises 36 routes in total from two of its sites.
The summer 2021 network includes six new services to Bologna, Bari, Corfu, Marseille, Rhodes and Venice Treviso, all from Paphos. Flights to London Stansted and Vienna are also set to commence from Larnaca.
“We are very happy to see Ryanair restarting a big programme from its Paphos base. It is very important for us after this difficult period to see our biggest airline in Paphos to maintain its confidence for Cyprus,” said Maria Karoupi, senior manager of aviation development and communication at Hermes Airports.
Dara Brady, Ryanair’s director of marketing and digital, added: “We’re delighted to be in Cyprus today as Ryanair’s biggest ever summer schedule officially launches from Paphos and Larnaca. Air traffic is set to soar throughout the peak summer months of July and August as vaccination programmes continue, and with 36 routes (6 new) to choose from, our Cypriot customers have a host of European destinations to choose from this summer for that much deserved break.”
Hermes hopes the addition of the new routes will help boost air traffic and the tourism industry in Cyprus.
