This followed the announcement made by the Russian government to open up for tourism, with Cyprus Airways consolidating its position as a favorite carrier for tourism to the Cypriot market.
Cyprus Airways is continuing to pick up pace this summer, with a raft of destinations available from Cyprus that includes Moscow. The airline will be flying the Moscow route three times weekly, and twice per week to St. Petersburg.
A pioneer in the Cypriot travel industry, Cyprus Airways operates a 10-destination international network to Thessaloniki, Heraklion, Skiathos, Preveza, Prague, Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Tel Aviv, Beirut, and the latest addition, Malta. Cyprus Airways has enjoyed a strong response to its summer schedule launch which was supported by a number of special promotions.
Recently Cyprus Airways was acquired by the SJC Group, a Maltese group with operations across Africa and the Middle East, incorporating a number of different activities including helicopter commercial flight operations, and helicopter maintenance from dedicated hangars within Malta International Airport.
The SJC Group maintains a fleet of private aircraft to provide emergency services in remote parts of the world. The company is also a leading provider of fire, safety, and security services.
George Mavrocostas, CEO, Cyprus Airways said, “We are delighted to be part of the tourism recovery in Cyprus and we look forward to a busy summer on the Moscow route. Our expanding network offers global passengers more travel options into and out of the EU, and reconnections to Greece, the Middle East, and Malta."
