Speaking at the press conference in Larnaca today, József Váradi, CEO of Wizz Air Group said: ”After ten years of successful operations to Larnaca International Airport, I am delighted to announce our newest base here, as we see the potential and the demand for low cost travel in Cyprus which is one of the most popular and rapidly developing tourist destinations. We are dedicated to developing our presence in Cyprus and offering more affordable travel opportunities to and from Larnaca while keeping ourselves to the highest standards of our sanitizing protocols.
“Our state-of-the-art Airbus A320 and A321 neo aircraft, as well as our enhanced protective measures, will ensure the best possible sanitary conditions for travellers. Wizz Air is the lowest cost producer with the strongest liquidity position in Europe operating the youngest and economically most efficient fleet of aircraft with the lowest environmental footprint. With that in mind, I’m confident Wizz Air will make a profound impact on Cyprus’ economic development and the ramp-up of its tourism industry.”
Mr Yiannis Karousos, Minister of Transport, Communications & Works commented: “This entire time, our strategy focused also on the country’s development and the next day. We are therefore pleased to announce that the restoration of Cyprus’ connectivity is launched in the best way possible, as it is combined with the establishment of a base by an important airline, Wizz Air, with flights to destinations with which we did not have adequate connectivity until today, with exceptional benefits for the economy of our country”.
Ms Eleni Kaloyirou CEO of Hermes Airports added: “We are very happy to announce today the establishment of Wizz Air’s new base at Larnaca Airport. The choice of Cyprus as the 28th base of Wizz Air at such a crucial time for the aviation industry is a great vote of confidence for us and highlights the rich prospects of Cyprus as a destination. We are confident that through the expansion of our fruitful cooperation we will significantly increase the connectivity of Cyprus to destinations we strategically target for better access, with a significant benefit for our tourism industry and the Cypriot economy at large”.
