One repatriation flight arrives tonight at Larnaca Airport from Athens carrying back 40 passengers, the CNA reports.
The passengers had been stranded in Athens following measures to contain the spread of Covid-19.
The Cyprus Airways flight is expected to land at Larnaca airport around 20:10 on Monday, an insider told CNA.
Under the Ministry of Transport’s decree put in force on March 21, flights to Cyprus airports are banned for two weeks, except for cargo flights.
Excepted from the ban are also flights arriving without passengers for the purpose of repatriating foreign nationals back to their countries, flights for humanitarian reasons or other emergency flights subject to a special permit by the Minister of Transport.
