Mr Sis also announced the establishment of the company's fully online tour operator, called Cyprus Airways Holidays.
«It offers exclusive holiday packages with Cyprus Airways to the best hotels in Cyprus, as well as hotels where we fly abroad. In other words, anyone from Cyprus can book holidays in Rome, Paris, the new destinations and all the existing destinations”, he said.
Regarding how the image of tourism has been shaped after the pandemic , Paul Sis noted: "Cyprus is certainly a special destination as we have had to reinvent tourism with the COVID-19 situation. And let's be honest, the geopolitical situation made it even more difficult. For Cyprus Airways it had a big impact. We managed to overcome this and I think that as an island we are reinventing tourism and Cyprus Airways is a real part of that, he concluded.
