Cyprus Airways introduces London Stansted link from Larnaca

Cyprus Airways Stanstead

On 14 September, London Stansted Airport marked the return of Cyprus Airways’ scheduled operations. The new sector will be served daily utilising the airline’s A320s. Celebrating the arrival at the UK gateway are: Panicos Tsolias, Network Development Officer, Cyprus Airways; Katerina Papadopoulou, Ground Operations Supervisor, Cyprus Airways; and Neil Banks, Head of Customer Service, London Stansted.

  • Cyprus Airways began flights from Larnaca (LCA) to London Stansted (STN) on 14 September due to moving its services from London Heathrow. The airline sold its last slot pair at Heathrow to American Airlines for US 31$m to help its difficult financial position. The 3,256-kilometre sector will be flown daily, utilising the carrier’s 162-seat A320s. There is no direct competition on this airport pair, but an array of airlines are providing indirect competition by flying to London Luton (Thomson Airways, Monarch Airlines), London Gatwick (British Airways, Norwegian, Thomas Cook Airlines, Thomson, easyJet, Monarch) and London Heathrow (BA). Commenting on the route launch, Christos Agapiou, Commercial Manager, Cyprus Airways, said: “We are delighted to announce the commencement of our operations to and from London Stansted Airport. We truly hope that our new route will strengthen even further the longstanding ties of Cyprus Airways with the British traveling public. We would like to thank all our customers for their enduring support and to promise them that we shall spend our best efforts to continuously improve our schedules and services.” See how London Stansted Airport’s FTWA compares to the others sent in this week from around the world.
