Cyprus Airways only operates 3 scheduled routes that nobody else does and those only because the obvious carriers that would have competed are code sharing on the route (KLM on LCA-AMS, Alitalia on LCA-FCO and Air France on LCA-CDG). For the rest there is already plenty of competition. There are many airlines ready to fill any gaps, which are very small, most notably Aegean/Olympic! The biggest shame is that Cyprus is pretty much the crossroads for three continents and they never took advantage of it! Now with the Middle Eastern hubs at the size they are, there is no way they can make up for lost time and can only really manage a point to point system!
