Cyprus Airways adds Moscow and St. Petersburg to its network for winter 2020/21. The company will operate flights to Moscow Domodedovo Airport once a week until 15 January 2021. St. Petersburg flight will commence on 21 January 2021, every Thursday. In order to meet the increased demand for St. Petersburg during the festive season, the Cypriot carrier included in its schedule two flights before the official launch date.
Mr. George Mavrocostas, Chief Operations Officer of Cyprus Airways stated “We are extremely happy that we managed to overcome the obstacles we recently faced with the Russian Authorities for the operation of our flights to Moscow. Our main priority is to carry all our passengers safely to their destination. The fact that some of our passengers had a very bad experience last month since we had to inform them at the airport that they could not fly to Moscow due to the rejection of the Russian authorities to allow us to operate the flight, forced us to publicly raise this issue. We would like to thank the Minister of Transport, Communications & Works, Mr. Yiannis Karousos, the Civil Aviation Department and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Nikos Christodoulides for their immediate response to our appeal for assistance to ensure the smooth operation of the bilateral air service arrangements between Cyprus and Russia Federation. Last but not least, we thank the Ambassador of the Russian Federation to the Republic of Cyprus, H. E. Mr. Stanislav V. Osadchiy and the Federal Agency for Air Transport for all their efforts”.
