Paphos looks to launch new carrier

6-Jan-2011 1:23 PM

Paphos mayor, Savvas Vergas, called for a general boycott of all Cyprus Airways flights by Paphos residents, in protest at the carrier’s decision to suspend service from the city to Stansted, Manchester, Birmingham, Frankfurt and Athens later this month (Financial Mirror, 05-Jan-2011). Mr Vergas also stated that local partners are due to meet to decide on the launch of a Paphos-based airline with an initial fleet of two aircraft and EUR10 million in start-up capital.
