Cyprus Airways reintroduces Stansted flights
Britons hoping to jet off on a sun-kissed holiday to Larnaca on Cyprus Airways will be able to do so from London Stansted from December 19.
The airline will operate a Larnaca-Stansted service on Monday and Thursday mornings and it hopes to increase flight frequency during the summer holiday season.
It is thought the news will be welcomed by many people looking forward to taking London to Stansted transfers ahead of their summer holiday in 2012.
Meanwhile, holidaymakers hoping to travel from the Cyprus city to Heathrow airport might be pleased to discover that from this Sunday, Cyprus Airways’ morning flight will depart at 10.05am (8.05am GMT), rather than 5am (3am GMT).
The airline has taken the measure because, according to a press release, many customers felt the 5am flight departure time was inconvenient. The later departure time will give holidaymakers a longer lie-in before catching their airport transfers, leaving plenty of time to spare as well.
From this Sunday, passengers can choose from twice daily Cyprus Airways flights.
The morning flight leaves Larnaca at 10.05am (local time) and arrives at Heathrow at 1.05pm GMT. The return flight departs a little over an hour later at 2.25pm GMT and arrives in Larnaca at 9.05pm local time.The afternoon flight from Larnaca departs 5.45pm local time, while the return flight leaves Heathrow at 10pm GMT.
