Cyprus Airways (Greek: Κυπριακές Αερογραμμές) is the flag carrier airline of Cyprus,[2] based at Larnaca International Airport. It commenced operations on 1 June 2017.

History[edit]

Cyprus Airlines resumed operations in 2016 after winning the rights to use the trademark of the Cyprus Airways. 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.[3] On 14 March 2017, it was announced that the airline had obtained the Air operator certificate from the Cypriot Department of Civil Aviation, marking the start of commercial service for the airline.[4]

Since then, 900,000 passengers travelled to and from Cyprus with Cyprus Airways. In 2019 alone 400,000 travelers were carried by Cyprus Airways.[5]
