Cypriot Cobalt launched two new routes this week – to the European capitals of London and Moscow.  

The flight from Paphos (PFO) to Moscow Sheremetyevo (SVO) started on October, 29 and is the first service of the carrier to Russia. The route will be serviced by two flights weekly, on Sundays and Thursdays, and will be operated on the company’s A320 aircraft. Cobalt will face no competition for this destination, since no other airline offers a direct link over the 2,395-kilometer route between Cyprus and the Russian capital since 2014.  

The other new services that the Larnaca-based carrier launched on October 30 is a second link between Larnaca (LCA) and London Gatwick (LGW). The 3,244-kilometer route will be covered six times weekly on A320s. Cobalt’s direct competitors over this destination are easyJet with their daily service and Thomas Cook Airlines with a weekly rotation.
