TRAVEL GAZETTE – Cyprus has a brand new airline, which has now been approved for take-off by the government in Nicosia.
The Famagusta Gazette reports that TUS Airways received their air transport licence late last week and will begin operations next month.
In a post on Facebook, the company said: “We are ready to take off for charter flights and at the beginning of January our scheduled flights will be announced.”
TUS Air will operate short routes up to two hours since its fleet contains small planes with a 40-seat capacity.
The airline will launch with Saab 340B aircraft which can carry up to 34 passengers. Destinations include Rhodos, Crete, Carpathos, Santorini, Samos or Kos.
