New holiday airline Small Planet Airlines flies weekly from EuroAirport to Larnaca in Cyprus, as of Sunday 9 April 2017.

Small Planet Airlines will carry passengers to Larnaca on the sun-kissed island of Cyprus each Sunday at 9.05 am, on behalf of various operators including FTI, Thomas Cook and Rewe Touristik. In addition to EuroAirport, its flight programme includes the airports of Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Leipzig, Hamburg, Munich and Stuttgart. The airline has based its modern Airbus A320 at Cyprus in order to facilitate this extensive flight plan.

Cyprus has more than 320 days of sunshine a year, beautiful beaches and excellent hotels, making it the ideal destination for package holidaymakers who want to try out something new. Independent travellers also get a good deal: they can spend pleasant hours on the island of Aphrodite, with its famous Troodos mountains and in its many tavernas serving the local speciality, meze. Furthermore, Paphos has been chosen as European Capital of Culture for 2017, attracting visitors with a varied programme of events.

Small Planet Airlines has been flying passengers to the most popular sun destinations on the Mediterranean since 2016 on behalf of renowned tour operators such as TUI und Thomas Cook/Neckermann. The most popular destinations include Palma de Majorca, the Canaries, Egypt and the Greek islands. In 2017 Small Planet Airlines Germany will operate four modern Airbus A320 aircraft to take over 800,000 passengers on a well-earned holiday. Two are based in Germany, with one in Amsterdam and one in Larnaca.

“We see ourselves as a European holiday airline and we aim to develop our flight programme after a successful 2016. This includes extending the German flight plan, but also basing aircraft in Amsterdam and developing our operations in Cyprus to link Germany's largest airports with Larnaca,” says Chief Commercial Officer, Oliver Pawel.

The airline has invested substantially to make its mark on the competitive German market. This includes providing a brand new cabin with innovative Recaro seats to offer its 180 passengers a more comfortable flight. There is also no shortage of in-flight entertainment: an innovative Airfy system ensures that both young and adult passengers are pleasurably occupied during the flight. The German-speaking cabin crew provides refreshments with snacks and drinks that can be purchased on board.

“We are delighted when our passengers land safely at their favourite holiday destination feeling relaxed and rested. From the moment they board the aircraft, the friendly crew makes every effort to provide high service quality, guaranteeing a pleasant flight for our passengers,” says Head of Marketing, Jan Limbach.
