Cypriot carrier Cobalt Air is to launch flights from Heathrow to Larnaca from March 27.
Cobalt, which already flies from Gatwick and Stansted to Larnaca, will operate daily from Heathrow using a two-class Airbus A320 with 144 seats in economy and 12 seats in business.
Andrew Madar, Cobalt Air’s CEO, said: “We are delighted to add Heathrow to our UK network, which is a key market for Cyprus tourism and business. Cobalt Air is the only carrier flying from the main three London airports to Cyprus.”
The Heathrow service will feature Cobalt’s new business class product which offers a 40-inch pitch in a two-by-two configuration. Cobalt will be competing with British Airways and Aegean Airlines on the route.
Flights will depart Heathrow’s Terminal 3 at 17.20 for arrival in Larnaca at 23.50, while the return service leaves Larnaca at 12.45 to arrive at Heathrow at 15.45.
Cobalt said that the schedule was “timed to appeal to both business and leisure passengers”.
The airline also flies from Manchester to Larnaca as well as the three London airports.
