According to yesterday’s Phileleftheros, statistics released by the Turkish Cypriot authorities reveal that Ercan airport handled 1,646 flights last November. This more than doubles the number of flights for Paphos in the same period, 619, and comes close to the 2,200 flights handled by Larnaca that month.

The paper reported that 204,208 passengers passed through Ercan last November, compared to 102,110 who passed through Paphos airport and 252,870 Larnaca.

Asked by the state broadcaster about Greek Cypriots travelling through the north, Aspris replied:“Unfortunately, it is true that a significant proportion of passengers choose to travel through Tymbou and that is sad.”

He highlighted that 33 per cent of revenue from Cyprus’ international airports end up in state coffers.

“The money spent by Greek Cypriots at the international airports of Larnaca and Paphos are used for investments and projects for the country and not as offensive tools against us,” he said.
