Charlie Airlines, operating as Cyprus Airways, is a Cypriot airline based at Larnaca International Airport.

History[edit]

In 2016, it was announced that S7 Airlines was planning to launch a Cypriot airline under the name Charlie Airlines. The airline takes its name from the former bankrupt Cyprus Airways after winning trade mark rights to use the name for a decade since July 2016.[2][3][4] The airline's logo incorporates an olive branch, the main symbol of Cyprus.

On 4 March 2017, the airline conducted its proving flight from Larnaca International Airport to Heraklion International Airport with an Airbus A319-100, as part of the procedure to obtain the certificate.[5] On 14 March 2017, it was announced that the airline had obtained the Air operator certificate from the Cypriot Department of Civil Aviation.[6]
