In a press release, the company said that this number equals to the number of passengers carried in the whole of 2021.

Cyprus Airways also said August looks positive too. “Preliminary figures for August, our busiest month, are very good and we are looking forward to registering another record month for tourism arrivals on our 60 weekly flights from 19 destinations this summer”, said Paul Sies, CEO of Cyprus Airways.
“In July we also welcomed to our fleet the new and advanced Airbus A220", said Sies, who explained that the new aircraft, which entered into services earlier in August, is offering "an unparalleled on-board travel experience whilst striking the best balance between passenger comfort, operational efficiency and our sustainability targets".
