CYPRUS Airways (CY) will be starting daily flights to London’s Stansted airport on September 14, it was announced on Monday.
The airline said it will cost passengers less to fly to the new destination while flights will be conducted at better hours.
The flight will depart Larnaca airport at 8.45am and arrive at Stansted at 11.45am local time.
Departure is scheduled for 12.45pm local time and the flight returns to Larnaca at 7.15pm.
The move follows the sale of CY’s final timeslot at London’s Heathrow airport as part of the airline’s effort to survive.
The national carrier faces bankruptcy if the European Commission does not approve its restructuring plan, a decision expected in the autumn.
