APG will be providing full sales and marketing services as well as call centre facilities as part of the agreement. APG already partners with Cobalt in Belgium, France, Israel and Spain.
IATA Travel Agents can book Cobalt’s flights from London Stansted and Manchester via GDS and ticket via BSP UK through a code share agreement with APG which has its own airline code, GP. Cobalt’s flights to Birmingham and Dublin will be available shortly under the same codeshare arrangement.
Since the demise of Cyprus Airways, Cobalt is the largest and fastest growing airline in Cyprus, operating a single type Airbus fleet of 6 aircraft including the A319 and A320. The airline operates schedule services from its home base at Larnaca International Airport to airports in Greece, the UK, Belgium, Spain, Israel, Ireland, and France and has recently announced the commencement of services to Iran. With future aircraft deliveries planned, the airline is looking to aggressively expand its network, using Cyprus as a hub to connect Asia, Middle East, Africa and Europe.
Cobalt is redefining the low-cost travel sector by combining the price flexibility and cost advantages of the low-cost carrier business model with a high-tech in-flight service delivery.
Strategically positioned in Cyprus it services a market of over a billion potential customers with a product to appeal to both business and leisure travel segments.
