Alitalia to boost trade ties with Cyprus through new air link
10 / 05 / 2016
Alitalia is to launch new Airbus A320 services to Larnaca, Cyprus, from the Italian capital on 8 June.
While the A320 is not known for its cargo capacity, an Alitalia statement pointed to the flights being important to “the further development of trade” between the two countries.
Italy is one of Cyprus’s main trading partners, and according to figures issued by the Italian Statistics Institute Istat, trade between the two countries continued to rise in value last year, with Italian exports to Cyprus reaching a value of €263m and its imports from the island being worth €32m.
Alitalia will fly between Rome Fiumicino and Larnaca twice a week.
