TUS Airways is committed to both making Dubai more accessible than ever to the Cypriot market, while playing a key role in establishing Cyprus as a key outbound destination for both Emiratis and expats based in the UAE.

During the official launch ceremony, Dubai Airports' Al Joker said: “As the world’s busiest international airport, we will continue to expand our network. The launch of this new service offers greater flexibility and more choice for travellers who fly between Dubai and Cyprus, and we expect it to boost tourism and trade in both destinations.”


TUS' Ahmed Aly added: “We are confident this new route will further strengthen the tourism, commercial and trade ties between the United Arab Emirates and Cyprus, while providing our customers with a great value-for-money option to travel between both countries. 

"As the proud bearer of the Cypriot flag, we aim to offer a seamless travel experience for both Cypriots and international visitors by offering strong regional connectivity throughout the East Mediterranean. We thank Dubai Airports for their warm welcome.”
