Etihad opens new office in Nicosia
Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates that operates five flights a week to Cyprus, opened its new offices in Nicosia, inaugurated by Energy, Commerce and Tourism Minister Yiorgos Lakkotrypis.
Also present at the ribbon-cutting ceremony were Etihad’s Vice President Europe, Joost den Hartog, the UAE Embassy’s Attaché Ammar Omar Al Breiki, government officials and businessmen.
The minister praised the airline, that has been flying to Cyprus for the past six years, adding that the national airline of the UAE chose to invest in the Cypriot economy at a critical time, greatly supporting the growth of business and leisure traffic, not only between Cyprus and the UAE, but also between Cyprus and a wide range of destinations around the world.
The airline’s Cyprus commercial team, which has been operating from offices in Larnaca for the past six years, will now move to the new offices, strategically located in the centre of the capital.
Etihad’s Joost den Hartog said: “The launch of the new offices and the relocation of our commercial team to Nicosia makes sound business sense. It will bring us closer to our corporate customers and travel trade partners while also reflecting our commitment to growing our operations in Cyprus.”
