TUI fly have announced that they will increase their flights to Cyprus from Germany from May 2019.

Specifically the airline will operate four flights per week from both Düsseldorf and Frankfurt to Larnaca next May.

The new flights will help fill the gap left by Cobalt Airways which operated these two routes this summer before its surprise collapse last week.

The forthcoming arrival of TUI fly was welcomed by the Cyprus tourism minister,
Georgios Lakkotrypis. “Tourism is one of the most important economic sectors on Cyprus. We are very proud of the cooperation with TUI and are looking forward to a successful tourism year in 2019” he stated.

Stefan Baumert, Chief Operating Officer at TUI Germany, said: “I consider the prospect of increasing the tourism flow from Germany to Cyprus as very important as the destination respects all our prerequisites.”

German tourists contemplating a visit to Cyprus, will be able to choose from about 220 hotels offered through TUI on the island, some of which are Cypriot-owned with TUI shareholders.

TUI fly Deutschland, formerly TUIfly, is a German leisure airline owned by the travel and tourism company TUI Group.

Last year, TUI fly carried 7.9 million passengers on a fleet of 39 modern Boeing 737 aircraft.
