LOW COST carrier Cobalt Air may begin operating out of Paphos in the future, according to media reports.
Chairman Gregoris Diakos has said the company considering using Paphos as its second hub, initially for the summer season, and perhaps extending into the winter season as well with all-year scheduled flights, reports the Financial Mirror, citing Phileleftheros.
The airline has ambitious plans to turn Cyprus into a major transit point using a modern fleet of Airbus 320 and 330 aircraft “and connect Cyprus to the world and the world to Cyprus”.
The company wants to plug the gap left by Cyprus Airways – the airline, which once dominated the local air travel market.
Paphos is already a regional hub for budget carrier Ryanair.
