Cobalt Air is boosting its European network with a new twice-weekly service from London Gatwick Airport to Athens.
The airline, based in Cyprus, is adding the new service on Tuesdays and Saturdays, effective 31 March 2018.
The new Athens service will be the second London Gatwick route for the carrier, alongside its existing six times a week Gatwick to Larnaca service.
“We are delighted to have this opportunity to widen our footprint in European aviation and commence direct London to Athens services at the end of this month,” said Andrew Madar, CEO, Cobalt Air.
Madar added: “The travelling public has taken the relatively young Cobalt brand and its ethos to its heart. Our presence in Athens is already strong due to our existing services to Larnaca and Pafos from the Greek capital. We are very excited to bring additional competition and attractive fares to the London to Athens route.”
Both routes will be operated with Airbus A320 aircraft, in a business and economy class format.
