Aegean Airlines reported a strong set of nine-month 2014 results on Thursday, driven by successful network expansion and Olympic Air synergies.
Consolidated revenues increased by 10 percent to 736 million euros, pre-tax earnings improved to 105.4 million euros from 75.9 million a year earlier while net earnings rose 31 percent to 78.6 million euros from 60 million in 2013.
The Cypriot government said on Wednesday it has yet to receive any serious interest in Cyprus Airways, four months after launching a search for investors in the struggling airline.
Communications Minister Marios Demetriades appeared to dismiss interest from Irelands Ryanair and Greeces Aegean Airlines, which have been holding talks with his government.
