History[edit]

Tus Airways was founded in June 2015 and is backed by investors from Europe and the United States.[5][6] It was the first Cypriot airline to be founded after the dissolution of Cyprus Airways in 2015. Tus Airways began operations on 14 February 2016 with a Saab 340B operating from Larnaca to Tel Aviv and Haifa in Israel. In July 2016, the airline received its first Saab 2000 to increase capacity on its routes.[7] In June 2017, the airline acquired its first jet aircraft, two Fokker 100. It subsequently bought five Fokker 70, bringing the total number of aircraft to 7. On 6 July 2018, the airline also launched its frequent flyer program “Tus & Plus”.[8]
