Aegean Airlines Expands Direct Flight Program Between Cyprus and Greece, Western Europe

Aegean_airlinesAegean Airlines is stepping in to cover flights to and from Cyprus and link the island with additional cities in Greece and western Europe following the shutdown of Cyprus Airlines, it announced on Tuesday.
During a press conference in Nicosia, Aegean Vice Chairman Eftychios Vassilakis said the company would also acquire four new Airbus A320 aircraft as of March 30, and bring total annual capacity in schedules serving connections with Greece and another seven countries to over 1.5 million seats.
The number of direct flights to and from Cyprus served by Aegean will increase to fourteen, he said, including destinations both in Greece and western Europe (London/Heathrow, Paris, Munich, Rome and Milan).
Aegean’s summer schedule will begin in April 2015, marked by increased regular flights from Nicosia to Athens and the introduction of a direct flight between Athens and Paphos. The new summer schedule also includes direct connections with islands – Heraklion (Crete) and Rhodes – with more islands such as Mykonos and Santorini added in July and August. Eight to nine direct flights to Greek destinations will depart from Nicosia daily.
Vassilakis said that Aegean has also applied for permits to inaugurate flights to Israel and the cities of Kiev and Beirut.
In addition, frequent-flyer program participants of the former Cyprus Airlines Elite level will be given the option of transferring their miles to Aegean’s Gold level of its Miles + Bonus program. An additional 50% of miles will be offered on all direct routes from and to Cyprus in 2015 to all Miles + Bonus members, and to all new members from Cyprus who join the program by February 28, he said.
