More than 300,000 seats added to winter flight schedule

Today Hermes Airports have said that there will be an increase of more than 300,000 seats (or 9%) in this winter’s flight schedule compared with the same season of 2018-2019.

The winter flight season commences on October 22, 2019 and ends on March 28, 2020.

This increase has resulted from the addition of new routes to and from Larnaca and Paphos International Airports, as well as the introduction of additional flights and seats to existing routes.

Ryanair will begin a new flight schedule from Beirut, Katowice and Malta to Paphos Airport, and will also include Kiev in its winter season schedule.

At Larnaca Airport, Wizz Air will launch new routes from Lviv, Chisinau, Kraków and Skopje, while Aegean Airlines is launching a new route from Beirut.

At the same time, there will be an increase in flights for existing routes to Athens (Cyprus Airways), Tel Aviv (El Al), Frankfurt (Lufthansa), Manchester and Birmingham (Jet2), as well as other destinations.

In total, 70 airlines are currently flying to and from Larnaca and Paphos International Airports, connecting Cyprus with 120 destinations in 40 countries.
