Cobalt assures it is tackling delays

Almost three weeks after Larnaca-based Cobalt stretched its wings and teething problems are still there but the low-cost carrier on Monday sent the message that postponed flights will come to an end soon.

“The administrative board has spent hours figuring out ways to end postponed flights, we have only cancelled one flight because of safety reasons, every day is a new effort for us to improve ourselves,” chairman Gregory Diacou told incyprus.com

“We have three aircrafts now and we will get another two by early August, plus one more by end of August, postponements will come to an end soon…demand is way too high, over the past 10-15 days we had over 65,000 customers,” he added.

Diacou also said that inconvenienced passengers have been compensated with free tickets.

Cobalt now flies to Athens, Salonica, Chania, London, Manchester and Dublin.

The new airline plans on building on the success of the low-cost flying model, by offering services that will not only fill the gap left by Cyprus Airways, but also by strengthening the image of Cyprus as an all-year-round destination.

The company pledges that their customers will see fares come down sharply in various key markets.

  1. The truth be told

    Not sure about this, up to today they had one A320 and were hiring a second from Smart Lynx. Yesterday they delayed the Stansted flight by 7 hrs because they used their only owned plane to fly a charter to Norway, obviously worth more than the fares to Stansted.
    We shall see if the facts are true by noting the aircraft reg numbers.
