Cobalt Air goes live on Galileo

Cobalt Air is going live on Galileo today as it seeks stronger relations with the trade.

The airline is also offering 1% commission for any bookings made via the GDS

Chief commercial officer Paul Simmons said the move completes the Cyprus-based airline’s presence on the three biggest GDS systems after going live on Amadeus a week ago and Sabre in February.


In doing so, the airline, which operates a total of 18 weekly flights from Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester and Stansted to Larnaca and two to Athens, hopes to get more bookings from the trade.


Simmons said: "We have introduced 1% commission (for agents) through Amadeus and Galileo.


"We’re trying to make the point we are not a low cost carrier. Our awareness isn’t huge and I want us to use the trade to get our name out.


"We don’t have the budget for big campaigns so we’re trying to get the message out where we can."


He added once in Larnaca travellers could then connect to flights to destinations like Abu Dhabi where the airline has an interline arrangement with Etihad Airways.


Simmons said the airline was also looking to expand its UK offering with both the south west and Scotland on the radar.


He added: "We’re talking to two or three airports primarily for summer 2019 and we would like to expand the network if we can."
