The airline which took delivery of its first aircraft, an Airbus A321neo, last week, has announced routes to Athens, Larnaca, Alexandria, Odessa, Yerevan and Kutaisi. It is offering passengers who booked tickets for flights prior to 16 October a travel voucher worth 20% more than the original price they paid. The voucher, which is only available to customers who booked directly through the airline's website or app, is valid for two years.
