Cobalt Air launches London to Athens route
Cobalt Air, Cyprus’s largest airline, is further bolstering its European route network with the addition of a new twice-weekly service from London’s Gatwick Airport to Athens.
The new route, which operates on Tuesdays and Saturdays, launched on 31 March, with fares starting at £49 one way. The new Athens service will be the second London Gatwick route for the carrier, alongside its existing six times a week Gatwick to Larnaca service. Both routes are operated with Airbus A320 aircraft, with a business and economy class cabin.
Andrew Madar, CEO, Cobalt Air said: “We are delighted to have this opportunity to widen our footprint in European aviation and commence direct London to Athens services at the end of this month.
“The travelling public has taken the relatively young Cobalt brand and its ethos to its heart. Our presence in Athens is already strong due to our existing services to Larnaca and Pafos from the Greek capital. We are very excited to bring additional competition and attractive fares to the London to Athens route.”
The London Gatwick to Athens route will feature Cobalt’s newly-developed business class product, featuring large bespoke business seats in a two-by-two configuration with a 40″ pitch, bringing a high level of comfort on the four-hour journey. Cobalt will become the only airline offering a business class cabin from Gatwick to Athens.
