A Cyprus Airways flight departs Larnaca Airport on Thursday morning for Heathrow with 90 passengers stranded in Cyprus because of the coronavirus pandemic, philenews reports. Most are British and US citizens.

It is due back at 20.50, one of the repatriation flights being organised by the government to bring back Cypriots stranded abroad.

It will bring back 96 passengers who obtained the necessary documentation to qualify for repatriation, as amended by yesterday’s decisions of the Council of Ministers.

All will be required to do 14 days quarantine in state facilities.

Cyprus Airways sources told philenews that the airline has adopted recommendations and protocols set by the Health Ministry regarding air transport because of Covid-19 and has limited the maximum number of passengers on the airplane.
