Schiphol, 30 January 2015
On commencement of its summer schedule, Transavia plans to launch scheduled flights to the new sunny destination of Larnaca (Cyprus). Flights from Amsterdam will be operated four times a week to this city on the southern coast of Cyprus.
The new scheduled service will include two direct flights a week coupled with two weekly flights combining the coastal city of Paphos in the southwest of Cyprus. Millions of tourists visit Cyprus each year and it is a popular destination for Dutch holidaymakers throughout the year.
Transavia will become the only airline operating direct flights to this destination from the Netherlands. Prompted also by popular demand, Transavia decided to add Larnaca to its network in response to the high level of demand from the Dutch travel sector. Existing and new tour operator partners will play an important role in making this route successful.
The flights to Larnaca will be operated in codeshare with KLM, making it possible to travel seamlessly to and from Cyprus from all of KLM's destinations.
Cyprus is a beautifully sunny destination, boasting a long summer and a pleasant Mediterranean climate. The island's strategic position between Asia and Europe is reflected in its rich history.
Flights will commence from mid-April and will be temporarily available for a start-up fare of €49. In addition to Larnaca, Transavia will this summer launch scheduled services to Tel Aviv (Israel) and the southern European island of Malta.
