History of Success

In September of 1995, Mr. Antonis Orthodoxou, a young entrepreneur decided to open a small office in Xylophagou, a small village in Larnaca, who would later go on to build the Orthodoxou Group of companies as we know it today. 

Back then, Mr. Orthodoxou was a oneman band, serving a modest number of customers but with a determined vision for the company’s future. Through his ambition, within two years the company had moved to new promises and was already employing three people.

By the year 2000, the business continued to expand with the opening of another office in Paralimni. Two years further down the line and a new office branch was opened in Larnaca. During the first seven year of its establishment, the group had managed to enter the market of recruitment, travel, insuramce and other related services.

Well aware that the Cyprus market was relatively modest in size, a decision was taken to expand abroad and, in 2004, the group opened its first travel office in Bulgaria.

The group began to specialize in the Bulgarian Market, offering its services for a number of years, something which helped tremendously in gaining experience in overseas markets. This proved to be key in developing the many business partners and associates that the group enjoys today.

In 2006, the head office was subsequently established in Larnaca under the management of Orthodoxou Group of Companies.

This expansion continues until this day with an office in Larnaca International Airport (2008), an office in Bulgaria (Intenso, 2012), a Coffee Island franchise (2014), an online booking engine (Budgetfly, 2015), an office in Greece (BBT Air, 2019) and an office in Romania (People House, 2021).
