Low-cost Scottish airline flyglobespan has revealed a new route that will see it flying passengers to Larnaca
Scheduled flights are set to take off from Stansted to Larnaca from April 1st 2007, with passengers paying around £75 each way.
The airline's chairman has claimed that the new route should prove popular with British holidaymakers looking to head to Cyprus for some sun, sea and sand.
Tom Dalrymple, flyglobespan chairman, said: "Cyprus offers some great resorts and temperatures that ensure a long and lively tourist season.
"I am pleased we can offer our customers in the Stansted area the chance to travel to Cyprus at such attractive fares."
Flights from Stansted to Larnaca will be initially restricted to weekends but the Glasgow-based airline has added that it intends to expand the service to fly six days a week, giving Brits ample opportunity to head to Cyprus.
Earlier this year, XL Airways announced plans to extend its flights to Larnaca
from the UK, with passengers taking off from Luton three times a week and joining those already jetting to Cyprus from Birmingham, Bristol, Gatwick and Manchester.
