Local authorities, representatives from the Preveza Chamber of Commerce, and the Preveza Hoteliers Association were also present at the event where Georgakos noted the “significant importance” of the air link.

He also mentioned that Preveza is “open year-round and not just seasonally” and highlighted efforts to extend the tourist season. Preveza, he continued, “has more to offer than just sun and sea; it also has culture, antiquities, and a beautiful natural environment,” said The Cyprus Mail.

He also referred to the Twinning Network of Cities, which includes Preveza and Paphos on Cyprus, where he said he has developed communications with Mayor Phedonas Phedonos, to promote culture and tourism initiatives between them.

Theo Malas, Marketing and Public Relations Manager at the airline said that, “We are delighted to resume direct flights between Larnaca and Preveza with Cyprus Airways aircraft.”

He said there was a possibility of increasing flight frequency during the summer season if there’s a demand and that the airline is considering the possibility of direct connections throughout the year.

Malas stated Cyprus Airways aims to increase connectivity to several key destinations. “Our goal,” he continued, “is to increase the type of aircraft in our fleet and the fleet’s technology towards Green Innovation.”
