Cobalt Air has joined the International Air Transport Association (IATA) as a member, becoming the only Cyprus-registered airline to be a member of the association.
The membership certificate was handed to the airline at a ceremony in Larnaca airport.
“The positive progress of Cobalt Air continues. We are proud to join the international aviation family of IATA members,” said Andrew Madar, CEO, Cobalt Air. “This achievement is special because it has been attained just one year after our start of operations. It is a testament to the highly experienced team at Cobalt.”
IATA’s regional vice president for Europe, Rafael Schvartzman, said: “Cyprus and aviation are intertwined, so we are extremely happy to welcome Cobalt Air to the IATA family, and have a member airline in this great country. We look forward to partnering together for the benefit of Cyprus and its connectivity with Europe and the world”.
The airline can now collaborate with other international airlines that are IATA members on issues such as code-share and interline agreements. Over time this means that Cobalt will be able to offer the Cypriot population and people overseas a wider range of travel connections worldwide.
