Coronavirus: Rossiya Airlines suspends flights to Cyprus

Rossiya Airlines (part of Aeroflot Group) is suspending flights from Moscow’s Vnukovo airport and St. Petersburg’s Pulkovo airport to Cyprus on March 14 and will only operate return flights because of the spread of the novel coronavirus, Tass reported on Saturday.

“Due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus and the related decision by the immigration authorities of Cyprus, Rossiya Airlines informs passengers of the cancellation of flights operated jointly with the Biblio Globus tour operator from Vnukovo and St. Petersburg from March 14. Return flights will be performed according to schedule and will be used to take passengers out [of the country],” Tass quoted the company as saying.

Meanwhile, Russia will suspend regular air service with all EU member-states excluding flights between Moscow and EU capitals starting March 16. Flights to Switzerland and Norway, except the ones to Geneva and Oslo, will be suspended as well.
