Cabinet has decided to classify the LarnacaBrussels air link as a public service route as it considers regular direct flights to the EU capital of crucial importance to the Republic of Cyprus.
To this end, Cabinet has set out the procedures under which it will choose the airline that will carry out flights from Larnaca to Zaventem airport in Brussels under this special regime.
The Communications Minister has been authorised to explore the availability of EU funds, in the very likely eventuality that some kind of financial compensation is requested.

Tuesday, 29 July 2014 09:47
Recent Cabinet shuffle in Britain may be the latest sign of UK growing isolationist trend. Prime Minister David Cameron replaced his long-serving Foreign Minister William Hague with Philip Hammond, the former defense minister, who many consider a Euroskeptic.
