Cobalt Partners with Eithad, Connects Cyprus Middle East
Cypriot airline Cobalt Air has entered into an interline agreement with global carrier Etihad Airways, aiming to connect Cyprus with destinations in the Middle East.
According to an announcement, the agreement is expected to significantly benefit Cobalt Air and the Cypriot economy, as it will open more than 100 new itineraries from Cyprus via Abu Dhabi.
The partnership will also help both carriers widen their passenger reach and increase tourism flows to and from the Middle East.
The agreement reconnects Etihad with Cyprus, as the carrier had stopped flying to the country in 2014.
“We are ready to inaugurate this partnership by providing our passengers from Cyprus with connections to popular destinations,” said Philokypros Roussounides, director of corporate affairs at Cobalt Air.
Cobalt in February started flying from Larnaca to Abu Dhabi with its Airbus A320 aircraft.
“According to the latest data, Cyprus is a popular destination for travelers from the Middle East… The new connections will enhance tourism in both areas,” Roussounides added.
Cobalt Air Business Class.
Under the new agreement, passengers from Cyprus will be able to book flights via Abu Dhabi to Sydney and other destinations. Their luggage will be checked at the airport of Larnaca before its delivery to the final destination.
All of Cobalt’s flights from/to Abu Dhabi offer the new Business Class service with 12 especially designed seats and dining on demand.
In addition, Cobalt offers the new IFB platform of Bluebox Wow (wifi) on all its aircraft, which includes numerous entertainment options.
Founded in 2015, Cobalt Air flies to 21 destinations across 12 countries in Europe and the Middle East.

Cobalt Air adds IFE across A320/A319 fleet, using portable wireless platform
Cypriot airline Cobalt Air is using a portable wireless IFE platform called Bluebox Wow to introduce IFE across its A319 and A320 fleet. Cabin crew have been trained and the system is going live this week.
Bluebox Wow, from Bluebox Aviation Systems, delivers wireless media content to passengers by streaming it to their own phones, laptops and tablets. Cobalt passengers can access movies and TV shows, with music, games and magazines to follow later, all through a web browser.
Bluebox Wow is a portable, lunchbox-sized unit. Each box’s single, swappable and rechargeable battery can deliver up to 15 hours of streamed video content. Cobalt Air has specified three Bluebox Wow units per aircraft, which are secured in the overhead lockers.
“We are very pleased to be offering IFE on board our flights now, just ahead of the peak summer and family holidays,” said Andrew Madar, CEO at Cobalt Air.
“From the outset we were clear that we didn’t want to have any disruption to our extremely busy fleet that a fitted system would incur. This solution from Bluebox was ideal for us – affordable and excellent quality – just like us.
“All our cabin crew have to do is turn it on and swap batteries when required. Families always travel with multiple devices, so we are making sure that every passenger can access our movies and TV shows.”

Dublin Airport announces new year-round services to Cyprus, Miami
Cyprus-based airline Cobalt Air will extend its summer service to operate year round flights between Dublin and Larnaca, according to a release by Dublin Airport.
The airline initially started a twice weekly service between July and September in 2016.
Welcoming the decision, Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison said, ‘Dublin-Larnaca was one of Cobalt Air’s first routes and today’s announcement that the route will be a year round service is testament to its success and popularity.’
‘Cyprus is a very popular destination for Irish holidaymakers seeking a sunshine break. We will continue to work with Cobalt Air to ensure its continued success,’ he added.
A Cobalt Air spokesman said, ‘This continues our commitment to the Irish market which has flocked to Cyprus in record numbers this summer. Irish visitors can look forward to a wider range of onward connections from Larnaca, including Tel Aviv so there’s never been a better time to book a flight on Cobalt Air.’
Dublin Airport also recently announced the launch of Aer Lingus’ new direct transatlantic service to Miami. Aer Lingus will operate its new three times weekly service – on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays – on a year-round basis.
‘We are delighted to welcome Aer Lingus’ new transatlantic service to Miami,’ said Dublin Airport Managing Director, Vincent Harrison. ‘This new route offers further choice and flexibility for both business and leisure passengers.’
Transatlantic traffic at Dublin Airport has increased by 67 percent in the past five years and Dublin is the fifth largest airport in Europe for North American connectivity after Heathrow, Paris, Frankfurt and Amsterdam, Harrison added.

Cobalt Air to launch flights to Moscow before year-end
Cobalt Air, which launched operations in July 2016, has announced plans to launch a service between Larnaca and Moscow before the end of this year. CEO Andrew Madar shared the plans with Russian Aviation Insider, but did not reveal which of Moscow’s three airports the carrier has chosen.
Cobalt Air initially intended to launch the service in the summer but failed to complete all the formalities on time, Madar said. He noted however that Moscow is a very important destination for his airline because it generates traffic all year round, unlike other, highly seasonal places. This is because there are many Russians residing on Cyprus, and the two countries also have “historic ties”, he explained.
Additionally, the Cypriot carrier expects to generate some transit traffic from Moscow to fill its flights on to Tel Aviv and Beirut.
Madar also confirmed the airline’s interest in St. Petersburg as a possible destination, but only from next year as the airline is currently lacking capacity to launch the route. No other Russian cities appear to be appealing enough to the carrier.
Cobalt Air was founded in 2015, following the collapse of the country’s national carrier Cyprus Airways. It has a vague link with Russia, as one of the figures behind the airline’s development is Andrew Pyne, formerly a senior manager of long-since-deceased Russian LCC Avianova. Cobalt Air operates a fleet of six Airbus A320 family aircraft to 16 destinations outside Cyprus.

Cobalt Chairman and former board member in joint bid for Bulgarian Airport
A company run by former Cobalt director Urs Meisterhans is bidding for a Bulgarian airport concession with a firm owned by the airline’s chairman Gregory Diacou, Bulgaria’s financial news-site Capital.bg
Prinz von Preussen Capital Ltd, a company run by Meisterhans, is the leader of the Silk Road Plovdiv Airport (DZZD) consortium, one of the three bidders, Capital.bg said, citing the website of Bulgaria’s ministry of transport. Prinz von Preussen Capital is affiliated with Switzerland’s Prinz von Preussen AG.
Cyprus’s Pictet Capital, owned by Diacou, is a partner in Silk Road Plovdiv Airport together with VVL Consulting, a Bulgarian company, the news-site reported. Pictet Capital, not related to the Swiss financial group Pictet, is owner of 49 per cent of Cobalt New Age Airlines Group, which launched its flight operations last year.
The other two bidders are the Consortium Plovdiv Airport and consortium of Hainan and Plovdiv Airport Invest, according to the website of the Bulgarian transport ministry.
“The concession of Plovdiv Airport aims to attract a financially stable investor with experience in the management, operation and development of airports,” the ministry said. “Thus, will be ensured the future development of the airport. The concession will help to improve the existing airport infrastructure, meet international standards and categories, generate traffic and develop business activities in the region”.
Capital.bg reported that the duration of the concession is 35 years and that candidates are required to prove that they have managed international airports with a passenger volume of 450,000 in five years. The average of 90,000 a year is slightly below Plovdiv airport’s annual passenger traffic.
Prinz von Preussen Capital was listed last year on the Bulgarian Stock Exchange.
Both, the Consortium Plovdiv Airport and Hainan and Plovdiv Airport Invest, said that they intend to expand the airport’s cargo capacity, according to Capital.bg adding that Hainan and Plovdiv Airport Invest also intends to introduce passenger flights to and from China three times a week.
The Swiss bidder’s plans on the other hand remain unknown.
