Cyprus Airways ventures into the package holiday sector, offering a one-stop-shop combining flights and hotels at competitive prices.
The airline has launched its Cyprus Airways Holidays, a package holiday platform.
“As the Cypriot flag-carrying airline, we are determined to facilitate inbound and outbound travel.
“Every year, we carry hundreds or thousands of customers, the majority of them being tourists.
“It was a natural step for us to start offering package holidays”, said Paul Sies, Chief Executive of the airline.
“The site will offer holiday packages at great value for money, cheaper than buying flights and accommodation separately.
“This is our first step at entering the package holiday market, and we look forward to continuing working with our Cypriot tourism industry stakeholders for the benefit of the industry and growth year-round.”
Morten Husby, Chief Executive of TripX, which operates the platform and operations of Cyprus Airways Holidayssaid: “As the preferred partner to several airlines in the tour operating and dynamic segment of the business, we are very happy to contribute to Cyprus Airways’ journey to be an important contributor to the tourism industry in Cyprus.
