Cobalt Air joins IATA after just 12 months
Cobalt Air, Cyprus’s largest airline has become a member of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) just one year after commencing operations.
The membership certificate was presented to the airline during a ceremony at Larnaca airport. Cobalt is the only Cyprus-registered airline to be a member of IATA.
Andrew Madar, Cobalt Air’s CEO, said: “The positive progress of Cobalt Air continues. We are proud to join the international aviation family of IATA members.
“This achievement is special because it has been attained just one year after our start of operations. It is a testament to the highly experienced team at Cobalt.”
Rafael Schvartzman, IATA’s regional vice president for Europe, said: “Cyprus and aviation are intertwined, so we are extremely happy to welcome Cobalt Air to the IATA family, and have a member airline in this great country.
“We look forward to partnering together for the benefit of Cyprus and its connectivity with Europe and the world.”
Cobalt will now be able to collaborate with other international airlines who are IATA members on issues such as code-share and interline agreements. Over time this means that airline will be able to offer passengers a wide range of global travel connections.
