 Direct flights from Turkey to Cyprus –

John Aziz Kent’s comments


By John Aziz Kent

Reading an article on click here it was reported that a flight that had been given permission to fly the Trabzon Spor club from Trabzon to Rhodes it would seem this flight was diverted by the pilot direct to Larnaca and I felt compelled to make the following comment :

Dear Mr Chris Elliott

Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou
Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou

But the same should apply to Ercan Airport from all over the World as to Larnaca and both COMMUNITIES can benefit from all Airports serving Cyprus as only a week before the Trabzon/Rhodes CYPRUS flights, I had a meeting with Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou and I proposed to him the principal of EasyJet Airline specialising in SHUTTLE air flights. Maybe he could start A SHUTTLE SERVICE from Istanbul to Larnaca to begin with and later to ERCAN Airport as well, thus he will be forcing the solution of Cyprus and bringing both Communities together faster than  he has been doing by rewarding GREEK AND TURKISH people to form joint partnerships especially in Tourism.

So far only the Greek gentleman, from the Greek side, that has tried to bring the two sides together is Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, despite so many attempts having been made by the Turkish side.  The time is now for everyone to encourage a fair solution instead of saying NO NO NO all the time and blaming everyone else.  Instead of looking to ourselves for solutions like Sir STELIOS IS DOING.  If the Trabzon/ Rhodes Cyprus flight took place, why not have permanent SHUTTLE Flights for everybody.

  1. An initiative such as shuttle services from Turkey to Ercan and Larnaca would no doubt need the permission of the Cypriot leaders. if and when that is ever given, then I feel certain that many other barriers would come down and the slow inexorable road to reconciliation may eventually start. An aim worth pursuing. Keep up the good work Aziz bey. As a successful business person, perhaps Stelios will take more notice of your request.
