Tus Airways is a scheduled passenger and charter airline that is based at Larnaca International Airport in Cyprus. The airline currently flies to popular destinations across Europe including Belgium, France, Germany, Greece and many more on a scheduled basis but suspended these flights on the 26th of October 2019 due to a potential rebranding. The airline was set to relaunch as an ultra-low-cost airline under the name Ela Airways in 2020. The plans to rebrand were ultimately dismissed as the chief executive of Tus Airways stated that the airline will keep its original name and resume operations in the summer of 2021. The airline continues to offer scheduled and charter flights to select destinations within Europe, including Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Israel and Italy.
The airline was founded in 2015 and flew its first flight from Larnaca to Tel Aviv in 2016. Tus Airways was the first airline to launch since the old national carrier of Cyprus, Cyprus Airways, ceased operations in 2015.
Duty-free is provided on board for flights between Cyprus and non-European countries such as Lebanon, Jordan, Ukraine, Israel and Egypt. Larnaca International Airport is registered under Hermes Airports Ltd in Cyprus. Hermes Airports Ltd is an international consortium of 9 shareholders, representing a mix of Cypriot and international partners. They run another airport – Pafos airport. Annually, the two airports together handle over 7 million passengers.
