Cobalt Air wins CAPA Airline Start-Up of the Year

The executive team at Cobalt Air are delighted and proud to announce that CAPA, the global airline research company has named the fledgling carrier as the CAPA Airline Start-Up of the Year.

The Airline Start-Up of the Year prize has been awarded to the Cypriot carrier for its activity over the first year of its operations, with Cobalt Air being recognised as having been the most innovative start-up, as well as being the carrier delivering the greatest impact on the industry since its launch.

At the 2017 CAPA Aviation Awards for Excellence, held on 12 October in London, Cobalt Air was delighted to accept the award, in the presence of Peter Harbison, Executive Chairman, CAPA – Centre for Aviation, who said:

“To replace a strong brand such as Cyprus Airways and build up an operation in a market already packed with LCCs and leisure specialists is no easy feat. However, in just over a year Cobalt Air has done that, successfully growing to provide numerous links from Larnaca and Paphos to destinations across Europe and the Middle East; and now long-haul links are also planned.”

Also commenting on the carrier’s award, Cobalt Air’s CEO, Andrew Madar, said:

“We are delighted that the hard work and passion of the Cobalt Air team has been recognised. All of us here in Cyprus are dedicated to building an airline that is worthy of the country we are proud to call home, and from our customers’ comments, we are sure that we are on the right track.”
