Considering a sunshine break in Cyprus, or heading long-haul to the Mountain States? You’ve more choice of flights than ever from March 2018. United Airlines will be flying direct to Denver, Colorado, while new-to-Heathrow carrier Cobalt Air offers business-class comfort en route to Larnaca.
Whether you’re looking for ancient cultural history or the party resort of Ayia Napa, Larnaca is perfectly placed.
Cyprus’s gateway city has Old Testament-era ruins and museums to discover, while the surrounding country has miles of unspoiled wilderness just waiting to be explored.
For many of us, the island’s deep blue sea, sandy beaches and reliably sunny skies are the big draw, not to mention some of the region’s best-known clubbing hotspots.
Cyprus-based Cobalt Air only started flying in 2016, but it’s expanding rapidly. In March this year the airline arrives at Heathrow to begin a daily service to its home base.
The service will be operated by Airbus A320 aircraft with a choice of Economy and Business Class – the latter offering large bespoke seats with a 40-inch pitch. Best of all, fares start at £65 one-way.
Flights to Larnaca begin on Tuesday 27th March from Terminal 3, departing at 17:20 (return flights arrive at 15:45).
Aegean Airlines and British Airways also fly from Heathrow to Larnaca.
Denver, Colorado (USA)
The ‘Mile-High City’ might just have it all – Gold Rush history and Old West remnants, modern art museums and a spectacular Rocky Mountains backdrop, plus 300 days of sunshine a year.
Denver is much more than just a business hub. It’s an attractive place with plenty of attractions for city-bound visitors, from restaurants and shopping to craft beer and nightlife.
When you do get out of the city there’s unlimited scope for adventure, from hiking to mountain biking to fishing. And in winter it’s a jumping-off point for serious skiers.
Whatever your reasons for going, Heathrow is the place to start. United Airlines has announced a seasonal non-stop service to Denver, running from 25th March to 26th October.
Flights – by Boeing’s latest 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft – depart Heathrow Terminal 2 daily at 11:40. Return flights arrive back in London at 17:35. Seats are available in Economy, Economy Plus and Polaris business class.
British Airways also flies to Denver from London Heathrow.
