Small Plane’s Landing Gear Briefly Delays Cyprus Flights

NICOSIA — Cyprus’ civil aviation chief says two people aboard a single-engine aircraft escaped injury when the nose gear on their private plane collapsed on landing at Larnaca airport. The accident briefly held up traffic at the airport.

Nicos Nicolaou told The Associated Press that the private, propeller-driven aircraft was Cypriot-registered.

Airport operator Hermes said in a statement that the incident briefly held up inbound and outbound traffic until the aircraft could be moved off the runway.

The company said flights have returned to normal.


NICOSIA - While Cypriot airports are less affected by air travel turmoil because of a shortage of pilots and staffs on international airlines – despite massive subsidies given the industry – Deputy Tourism Minister Savvas Perdios suggested Cypriots not to travel in July and August.
