CAL Cargo initiates weekly flights to Larnaca


Tel Aviv-based CAL Cargo Airlines has initiated two independent weekly cargo flights to Larnaca (LCA), replacing the cargo division of Cyprus Airways. The announcement came during CAL’s Global GSA Conference in early February.

For the past four years, CAL has serviced the Cyprus market as an arm of Cyprus Airways, however, Cyprus Airways’ recent announcement of voluntary liquidation and end of operation provided CAL with an opportunity to service the market autonomously.

The new schedule is fully operational and CAL has already run two flights with its 747-400F aircraft from Liege Airport to LCA and continuing to Tel Aviv Ben Gurion Airport, with the support of CALs GSA network in Cyprus and Greece.

“Cyprus is a key market for us,” said Eyal Zagagi, CEO of CAL Cargo Airlines. “We feel accountable to our customers in that region, and made a big effort to ensure a smooth transition. Our corporate slogan is ‘Challenge Accepted’ and we take that literally. We accept this challenge and have commenced independent operations. The market is responding well and is supporting our flights into LCA.”
