Russia to resume regular flights with Cyprus on May 1
From May 1, Russia may resume regular flights with the Republic of Cyprus, which were interrupted in March 2020 due to the pandemic. The Cyprus Mail newspaper reported this on April 23, citing its own sources.
According to the newspaper, tense negotiations have been going on in Moscow over the past few days between the authorities of the countries and representatives of the tourism industry. As a result, it was decided to lift restrictions on international flights to Cyprus.
It is expected that the corresponding order will be published on the website of the Federal Air Transport Agency in the coming days.
On May 1, Aeroflot plans to launch a daily flight from Sheremetyevo to Larnaca. The low-cost airline Pobeda will fly from Vnukovo once a week. Three flights a week are planned from St. Petersburg on the wings of Rossiya airline.
However, representatives of tour operators call Cypriot sources as unreliable, and their information about the forthcoming resumption of regular flights to Cyprus from May 1 are untrustworthy.
It is noted, that at the end of April the Russian Federal Air Transport Agency has issued more than 100 flight permissions for routs to Larnaca and Paphos from almost 30 regional airports of the Russian Federation.
