Cyprus Airways introduced Munich to its network on 5 May, one of two destinations in Germany to be added to the carrier’s route map this week, with Stuttgart services having been inaugurated four days earlier.
- Cyprus Airways has upped its European presence by adding two German airports to its network from Larnaca (LCA) this week, namely Munich (MUC) and Stuttgart (STR). The latter destination was the first to be inaugurated, with the Cypriot airline introducing a weekly (Tuesdays) service on the 2,520-kilometre link from Larnaca on 1 May. Munich operations commenced four days later on 5 May, with the 2,338-kilometre sector to the Bavarian hub also seeing a weekly (Saturdays) rotation. Both routes are going into competition with other carriers. Stuttgart is already flown by Eurowings weekly, while Munich has a daily rotation with Lufthansa plus a weekly link courtesy of Condor. With these launches, it means that Cyprus Airways presently serves six destinations from Larnaca, with the two German destinations joining Athens, Beirut, St. Petersburg and Tel Aviv on the carrier’s route map. Prague, Verona and Zurich are poised to be added by the airline in the coming weeks.
