Cyprus Airways has added two new Middle Eastern destinations to its schedule, with flights to Erbil in Northern Iraq starting on 4th July, and flights to the Iranian capital Tehran starting on 7th July.
At Erbil the first four flights will be chartered and will operate with a frequency of one per week, but the expectation is to increase this frequency.
The opening of this new service is the result of cooperation between Cyprus Airways with the tourist agency MERJAN, which is among the largest in Northern Iraq.
Both destinations are completely new to the Cypriot market, which should have a positive impact on tourism.
