Qatar Will Fly to Cyprus

DOHA, QATAR – Continuing an expansion plant, Qatar Airways said it will add flights to Larnaca International Airport in Cyprus beginning April 29,, 2014, flying four times weekly by an Airbus A320, configured in a two-class configuration with 12 seats in Business Class and 132 in Economy Class. Qatar earlier this year said it would fly from Athens to New York but dropped that idea.

Known for its waterfronts, scenic vistas and stunning beaches, Larnaca is located on Cyprus’ southernmost coast and is the third largest city in the country. Larnaca International Airport, located on the edge of the city provides central access to all amenities.

Travel Weekly said that Larnaca will be the airline’s first route to Cyprus – a popular holiday destination. Attractions in Larnaca include the ancient city of Kition, Larnaca Fort, Hala Sultan Tekke (Grand Mosque), Church of Saint Lazarus, Europe Square and Larnaca Salt Lake.

In a statement from the airline it said: “Larnaca is a destination that Qatar Airways is pleased to be providing regular scheduled service to. We are continually striving to provide customers with more options of unique destinations to visit, and the Mediterranean city of Larnaca is a welcomed new addition to the airline’s route map.”

Qatar Airways has seen rapid growth in just 16 years of operations, currently flying a modern fleet of 128 aircraft to 133 key business and leisure destinations across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and The Americas.
