Charlie Airlines, operating as Cyprus Airways, is a Cypriot airline that offers international flights from its main base at Larnaca International Airport. Charlie Airlines is the subsidiary airline of Russian carrier S7 Airlines (Siberian Airlines)
Charlie Airlines was founded in 2016 and originally launched under the Charlie Airlines name. However, after Cyprus Airways (another Cypriot airline) ceased operations in 2015, Charlie Airlines gained the rights to use the Cyprus Airways name and brand and has since operated as Cyprus Airways.
Although both airlines operated from Larnaca International Airport, the destinations that Charlie Airlines flies to are not that similar to the destinations that the old Cyprus Airways flew to.
