Cyprus Airways Winter 49

Cyprus Airways

Cyprus Airways were founded in 1947 with support from BEA and the local government of Cyprus. Initially it had 3 DC-3 aircraft and effectively operated as a subsidiary of BEA, with links North from Rome being BEA flights. This allowed BEA to serve destinations beyond Cyprus which had been set as the limit for BEA as BOAC was set up as the long distance UK airline.

 

The flights below came from the Winter 49 timetable from www.timetableimages.com .

 

These routes all radiated out from Nicosia airport which is now abandoned in the neutral zone between the Turkish occupied north of the island and the Greek south. We will use the nearby Lakatamia airport in the Greek part of the island as the hub for these flights.

The DC-3 aircraft wore a variation of the early BEA Keyline livery at this time.
