Hoteliers relieved over UK Jet2’s resumption of flights to Cyprus

Cyprus hoteliers have welcomed UK Jet2 airline’s decision to resume flights to the Mediterranean island after August 17, Philenews reported on Friday.

The airline’s intention was made public on Thursday by Deputy Minister for Tourism Savvas Perdios.

He also made clear that a negative Covid-19 test taken within 72 hours of departure is still needed from all passengers from the UK.

Last month, the airline had suspended its flights to Cyprus citing prohibitive entry restrictions.

However, after Jet2’s recent suspension of its flight to Spain following London’s new quarantine rules, the airline has turned its attention to other destinations.It has already announced additional flights to Greece and Turkey.

Specifically, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays promotions for Greece and Turkey show an increase of 30,000 seats with the addition of additional flights and larger aircraft for these two routes.

Cypriot hoteliers are optimistic that TUI will follow Jet2’s example and start scheduling flights to Cyprus.
