Cobalt Air launches a loyalty scheme – but you need to pay

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Cobalt Air is the new Cyprus based airline which has emerged to fill the gap left by the bankruptcy of Cyprus Airways.

From the UK, it currently flies direct from Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester and Stansted to Larnaca and from Gatwick to Athens.  Looking at the Business Class seat above, it looks a major improvement on British Airways Club Europe.

(EDIT:  Stansted and Manchester are not available from late October, and are either going Summer-only or being cancelled.)

Cobalt Air Business Seat

Cobalt has launched Elements, a paid-for loyalty programme.  Whilst you need to pay €150 to join, the benefits look good if you use the airline on a regular basis:

  • Use of business class check-in desks
  • Priority Boarding
  • Extra luggage allowance
  • Free flight changes (you just pay the fare difference)
  • Free seat allocation
  • 10% discount on fares
  • THREE upgrade vouchers – these can only be applied at check-in and are subject to availability, use of a voucher does not get you lounge access or Fast Track security

You can find out more about Cobalt Elements on this special website.  The main Cobalt Air site is here.

  1. Does a first BAPP supplementary card trigger 5k bonus? Thanks

    • No, but there are occasional offers of 500 Avios for adding a supplementary.

      • I got 3k about two weeks ago, no offer received. They just hit my account as soon as I added the supp.

        • How long does a supp Amex take to be processed these days? Applied a few weeks ago and nothing yet…

        • Clive, my partners approval was instant and the card arrived about 3 or 4 days later as is typical for amex in normal times. Seems these are not quite normal times based on comments here but even so, I’d personally be on the phone with them if more than two weeks passed.

    • 3k, yes. Did it about a month ago.

  2. Test comment
