Armavia resumes flights to Larnaca

/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Armavia Airway Company resumes flights to Cyprus.

Starting February 23, 2010, flights to Larnaca will be available via Yerevan-Beirut-Larnaca route, company's press service reported.

Armavia Airway Company LLC is the national air carrier of the Republic of Armenia. The company was founded in 1996. Currently the company is operating about 250 flights to over 30 countries of the world.

Larnaca is a city of the Republic of Cyprus situated on the southern coast of Cyprus. It has a population of 72,000 (2001) and is the island's second largest commercial port and an important tourist resort. The island's largest airport, Larnaca International Airport is located on the outskirts of the city.

Larnaca was founded by Phoenicians and was known as Kition, or (in Latin) Citium. The biblical name Kittim, though derived from Citium, was in fact used quite generally for Cyprus as a whole, and occasionally by the Jews for the Greeks and Romans.
Larnaca is colloquially known as "Skala" meaning "ladder" or "landing stage", referring to the town's status in history as an important port.
