Mr. George Mavrocostas, Chief Operations Officer of Cyprus Airways stated “We are extremely happy that we managed to overcome the obstacles we recently faced with the Russian Authorities for the operation of our flights to Moscow. Our main priority is to carry all our passengers safely to their destination. The fact that some of our passengers had a very bad experience last month since we had to inform them at the airport that they could not fly to Moscow due to the rejection of the Russian authorities to allow us to operate the flight, forced us to publicly raise this issue. We would like to thank the Minister of Transport, Communications & Works, Mr. Yiannis Karousos, the Civil Aviation Department and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Nikos Christodoulides for their immediate response to our appeal for assistance to ensure the smooth operation of the bilateral air service arrangements between Cyprus and Russia Federation.  Last but not least, we thank the Ambassador of the Russian Federation to the Republic of Cyprus, H. E. Mr. Stanislav V. Osadchiy and the Federal Agency for Air Transport for all their efforts”.

Passengers can book their tickets via the website cyprusairways.com, Cyprus Airways call center (from abroad at +357 24000053) or through their travel agent.
