Starting on the 1st of August, the budget carrier Wizz Air will be flying three times a week between Eindhoven Airport in the Netherlands and Larnaca in Cyprus, the airline and airport have confirmed.

This will provide Eindhoven Airport with a direct connection to Cyprus for the first time. Wizz will operate the flights three times a week on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday with an Airbus A320 featuring 180 seats. 

Larnaca airport is the largest airport in Cyprus with 8.3 million passengers in 2019 and will be a welcome addition to the Eindhoven Airport destination network. It is a popular holiday destination. In addition, the island in the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea is a business interesting destination for companies active in shipping.

The airline also confirmed that it has extended and intensified its deal with local football team PSV Eindhoven. Until the summer of 2023, Eindhoven Airport will remain the football club's official airport, which means that all of PSV's international campaigns during the coming seasons will depart from the airport. In addition, as the gateway to Brainport Eindhoven, Eindhoven Airport will continue to work together with PSV and the other Brainport partners on strengthening the Brainport Eindhoven Metropolitan Area.

 "We are extremely pleased that we can extend and scale up the agreement we have with each other, especially in a time when the economic outlook is anything but certain. The expansion of this partnership also fits in nicely with the Brainport Partnership and the role that PSV wants to play in the region together with its partners. Expanding our collaboration with the airport of the Brainport Region ties in perfectly with that aim." says Frans Janssen, Commercial Director of PSV.  

 Roel Hellemons, CEO of Eindhoven Airport:  "Connecting Brainport with Europe, and contributing to raising the profile of what the Brainport region has to offer in so many different areas. Thanks to our close partnership with PSV, these are aspects we gladly support by giving this iconic club a prominent position inside the airport. After all, this metropolitan area deserves international attention. The airport is a platform that we are happy to provide in order to serve this goal. It helps us to make the region even better."
