TUS Airways, the Cyprus based airline, has expanded its fleet with the addition of a fourth Fokker 70 Jet. The airline purchased the aircraft from KLM Cityhopper and it is the sixth aircraft in the company’s fleet that now includes four Fokker 70 and two Fokker 100 Jets. The plane was welcomed to Larnaca airport just before the New Year with a ceremony attended by employees of TUS.
The purchase of six Fokker Jets has allowed the company to replace the three Saab 2000 Turbo Prop airplanes which the airline was initially leasing at start up. The acquisition signifies another step for the company to achieve its objectives as they will be used for the current and new planned routes that the growing airline is flying to such as Rome, Athens, Ioannina, Alexandroupoli, Patras-Araxos and Tel Aviv.
The Fokker 70 and 100 Jets have a capacity of 80 and 100 passengers respectively, offering passengers a relaxing flight experience, spacious leg room and fast boarding. “They are highly regarded as efficient, reliable and fast aircrafts, and aside from TUS Airways, it is an aircraft of choice and indispensable part of the fleet of prestigious airlines,” the company stated.
The airline aims to connect Cyprus and Greece with countries in the Eastern Mediterranean as well as Europe via frequent flights, offering best comfort, convenience, competitive pricing and excellent service on board.
TUS Airways has its main base at Larnaca International Airport and plans to operate flights to 16 various destinations in 2018.
