With a fleet of three luxurious aircraft that can carry between 8 and 12 passengers reminiscent of private jets, this airline aims to be a new alternative for year-round travel to the Greek islands.
Cycladic proposes a fully private investment initiative and a flexible plan with a positive outlook for the future, as the airline will start operating three aircraft, two of which will operate dedicated, scheduled routes and the third will be available on a lease basis to operate affordable private flights. All will operate on a 12-month basis
The airline’s services are estimated at an average cost of 200 euros for the old two aircraft with scheduled trips and specific routes and will be able to accommodate between 8 and 12 passengers so we can consider that it wants to reach a new niche market called “affordable luxury”.
The aircraft to be used by the airline will be three new Cessna Grand Caravan EX aircraft and are more reminiscent of private jets than conventional airline aircraft. Moreover, these aircraft would be part of the first phase of its business plan as Cycladic’s future plans include not only the purchase of more aircraft, but also an investment in electric aircraft.

What destinations will the airline fly to on its specific routes? It will fly between some islands such as Hania, Santorini, Heraklion, Mykonos, Paros, Rhodes and Syros. Other destinations will be added to the schedule in winter, and in summer Milos will also be included.
When will the first flights start? October 2022
According to statements made by members of the company’s management to Kathimerini’s “K” magazine, “the vision is to increase the connection between the Greek islands quickly and easily, while the aim is not only to create an exclusive tourist product, but also a service that facilitates the movement of the permanent residents of the islands throughout the year. We cannot speak of sustainable tourism if the actions of the people in the sector do not substantially improve the daily lives of the residents of the destinations in question”.
