In 2016, it was announced that S7 Airlines was planning to launch a Cypriot airline under the name Charlie Airlines. That same year, it won the rights to use the trademarks of bankrupt Cyprus Airways for a ten year period beginning in July 2016.[2][3][4] The airline's logo incorporates an olive branch, the main symbol of Cyprus. On 4 March 2017, the airline conducted its proving flight from Larnaca International Airport to Heraklion International Airport with an Airbus A319-100, as part of the procedure to obtain the certificate.[5] On 14 March 2017, it was announced that the airline had obtained the Air operator certificate from the Cypriot Department of Civil Aviation, marking the start of commercial service for the airline.[6]
