TUS Airways takes off at 1 December 2015
After the bankruptcy of Cyprus Airways, the air transport market in Cyprus remained uncovered. Blue Air took advantage immediately and made the base, and from January 19 2015 began Larnaca - Athens and Larnaca - Thessaloniki.
But there is more room in the market. TUS Airways will be a new Cypriot airline. It will be based at Larnaca airport and intends to fly to: Beirut, Tel Aviv, Haifa, Eilat Ovda Int'l, Rhodes, Kos, Samos and Karpathos. Last month he received the Air Operator Certificate (AOC) issued by the Cypriot civil aviation department, and in the near future he will also receive the Air Transport Licensing Authority (ATLA) license.
For starters, TUS Airways will honor flights with Saab 340B - 5B-DER (cn 167), and seven additional aircraft are expected to join the fleet by the end of 2016, of which two will be Saab 2000.
