Cobalt Air, Cyprus’ largest airline, has inaugurated a new daily service between Heathrow and Larnaca, re-establishing an important link last served by the former Cyprus Airways in 2015. A new, enhanced business class offering, including dine on demand, is being introduced coinciding with service start, complementing the airline’s increasingly popular economy experience.
The addition of Heathrow on 27th March makes it a hat-trick of London airports for expanding Cobalt Air, which is already established at London Stansted and Gatwick, plus Manchester in north west UK.
Paul Simmons, Commercial Director, Cobalt Air, commented: “Cobalt is already Cyprus’ largest airline, offering flights to over 20 destinations from the island. We are delighted to be extending our network further with a daily service between Heathrow and Larnaca. At Cobalt, we offer great value and service in our Economy cabin and large bespoke seats plus dine-on-demand catering in our Business cabin.”
Simon Eastburn, Director of Airline Business Development at Heathrow said, “We are delighted to welcome Cobalt Air to Heathrow. This daily service gives passengers more choice and greater opportunity to fly to this popular short-haul holiday destination. We hope passengers enjoy the fantastic choice of dining options and services we offer in Terminal 3.”
Cobalt is flying Airbus A320 aircraft from Heathrow to Larnaca with 12 seats in Business and 144 in Economy. It’s new business class product is in a two-by-two configuration with a 40” pitch and economy a generous 30”.
