TUS Airways has included new routes in its program, including direct flights from Larnaca and Paphos airports to Eleftherios Venizelos airport.
This is a particularly important development, especially for Paphos, since the Paphos-Athens route was not served by another airline. The flights start on December 10 and will take place twice a week, Monday and Friday.
In a post on social media, the Minister of Transport, Giannis Karousos, stated that "this is a very important development, as the connectivity of Paphos airport is strengthened". According to him, initially, eight flights have been planned to test the viability of the flights. The flights will continue according to the original plan until January 9. However, if it proves to be a sustainable route then it may be extended.
For his part, DISY MP Charalambos Pazaros commented in a post that the inclusion of the Paphos-Athens route finally gives Paphos a fair shake.
Airlines have also added direct flights from Tel Aviv to Dusseldorf. Lately, TUS is in the process of increasing its fleet (A320 and A330) as well as its staff.
