The low-cost airline Wizz Air has announced the launch of a new direct connection between Prague and Larnaca.
From 1 August 2020, the carrier will offer flights to the popular holiday destination in Cyprus twice a week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
An Airbus A320 Family aircraft will be used to operate the route. This is the fourth new route from Prague, which Wizz Air has already confirmed. The carrier will also launch flights to Bucharest, Varna, and Tirana this July.
Wizz Air has commenced a “new era of sanitized travel” with enhanced hygiene measures in place to protect staff and travelers in the wake of the Coronavirus outbreak.
A Wizz Air spokesperson said: “The newly allocated capacity of over 280,000 seats per year will further contribute to the Cypriot aviation market and to the creation of over thirty new direct jobs with Wizz Air.”
Cabin crew and passengers are now required to wear masks, the crew must wear gloves and the aircraft are regularly cleaned using “an industry-leading fogging process”. Onboard magazines have been removed and payments are now made using contactless devices.
Larnaca is located on the southern coast of Cyprus. It is the third-largest town after Nicosia and Limassol.
The city which is built on the ruins of ancient Citium is endowed with numerous attractions such as Larnaca Castle, the Church of Saint Lazarus, Hala Sultan Tekke, etc. Larnaca’s waterfronts, scenic vistas, parks, and beaches with leisure and sporting facilities enhance its beautiful coastline.
