Cyprus has suspended commercial flights
The Nicosia government hopes the airports will be fully operational by June 9, depending on how the COVID-19 pandemic evolves internationally.
The head of the Cyprus Hoteliers Association, Haris Loizides, told the private television station Sigma on Monday that, due to sustained efforts to limit the spread of coronavirus, Cyprus is on the list of favorite destinations among citizens from other countries.
But the tourist season in Cyprus is uncertain as long as their main markets - the UK and Russia - are still struggling with the large number of cases confirmed with COVID-19. Cypriot authorities hope to attract more tourists from the Middle East, where countries have reported a low number of cases of the new coronavirus.
That being said, regular commercial flights from Romania to Cyprus have to wait until at least May 28, 2020. But there is a repatriation flight on May 17, which will be operated by Blue Air on the route Larnaca - Bucharest.
