Cobalt Air is a new airline based in Cyprus. It started operating flights mid-2016, combining the benefits of the low-cost travel sector with an ability to tailor the passengers’ flying experience, including a full service business class. Cobalt managed to get the IOSA Certification in a very short span, and has just become the only Cyprus registered IATA member airline. From its headquarters in Cyprus, Cobalt is strategically positioned to service a network that currently covers Europe and the Middle East, and aims to grow in both Asia and Africa.
For Andrew Madar, Cobalt Air CEO, “Cobalt now looks forward to collaborating with other IATA member airlines on issues such as code share and interline agreements. Over time, this means that Cobalt will be able to offer the Cypriot population and people overseas a wide range of global travel connections.”
“IATA is happy to welcome Cobalt Air to the IATA family, and have a member airline in this great country. We look forward to continue working together, enhancing Cyprus' connectivity with the world, and increasing its tourism and economic benefits”, said Nicole Boussioti, IATA’s Head of Member and External Relations for Europe.
