Blue Air and Cyprus Airways entered into a codeshare partnership
Cyprus Airways and Blue Air have entered into a codeshare partnership. Starting with 3 December 2018, Cyprus Airways customers will be able to fly from Larnaca to London Luton, Athens, Thessaloniki and Bucharest on Blue Air flights.
The agreement will allow Cyprus Airways to sell its own flight code between Larnaca and Blue Air destinations. Similarly, Blue Air will place its code on Cyprus Airways flights to Athens, Thessaloniki, Prague, Tel Aviv and Beirut. Other routes may be added in the future.
Codeshare Blue Air and Cyprus Airways
Based on this agreement, customers of the two airlines will have the opportunity to use more travel options and optimized flight schedules.
As we know, Blue Air has an operational base in Larnaca, Cyprus. It was inaugurated in 2015, following the bankruptcy of Cyprus Airways, the one owned by the Cypriot state.
The new Cyprus Airways company was founded in 2016 and started flying on June 1, 2017. 40% of the shares are owned by the Russian carrier S7 Airlines. It has a fleet of 2 aircraft and flies to 10 destinations.
It seems that the name of Cyprus Airways is lucky for the Romanian carrier Blue Air. It has taken advantage of the bankruptcy of 2015 and continues to profit from the current Cyprus Airways, based on this type of codeshare agreement.
