Our schedule continues during the winter season between Kiev and Larnaca with 2 flights per week thereby assisting winter tourism. In the summer of 2020, the flight frequency in Cyprus will be doubled to 10 per week, adding new routes from Odessa and Zaporizhia. It is worth mentioning that a very important factor on which our success is based is the credibility and solvency of our partners, which is why we are very optimistic about working with Orthodoxou Aviation, which has repeatedly proven to be a pioneer in the field of aviation.” said Ground Handling Director SkyUp Airlines Mr. Piont Oleksandr.
“After a strong start, we are confident that the right conditions and the right foundation have been created for a healthy partnership with SkyUp Airlines.

The event was held under the auspices of the Honorable Deputy Minister of Tourism, Mr. Savva Perdios, who during his speech referred to two very important issues for the Ministry of Tourism regarding the new partnerships, which are a key part of the new strategy of the said Ministry and which will be implemented in 2020-2021.
The first is to establish relationships with new markets and the second is to establish relationships with partners who are willing to see Cyprus up to an all-year-round destination, as he mentioned that the Ministry of Tourism is making continuous efforts to promote Cyprus as a destination that offers opportunities for quality tourism throughout the year and not only during the summer.
Concluding, Mr. Perdios expressed his gratitude to SkyUp, Orthodoxou Aviation and Antonis Orthodoxou for the continuous efforts to create new partnerships, thus helping the tourism and economy of our island.
