Good afternoon,


I posted yesterday that there was a possibility that Ryanair might be cancelling all of their flights to/from Larnaca as the Cypriot government couldn't fulfill their demands.

Ryanair's sales manager for the region gave the official reason for this decision:

“Due to a combination of high fuel costs and traditionally low fares during the winter we have had to suspend all routes during the winter 2012/13 season,”

Interestingly enough they have cancelled all of their bookings for the winter and had replied to the news agency but have not informed Larnaca airport or the Cypriot government of their decision.

Hermes airports spokesperson stated the following:

“We were informed that they want to review it but we haven’t had their final positions to know which routes will be affected,”

Cypriots are still hoping that this is just another trick used by the airline to get what they want and that these routes would not be affected. Officials in Cyprus said that there were a few airlines which were waiting for the outcome of the negotiations to see if they will step in or not.

All four destinations were served twice per week and only Charleroi saw direct competition, as Cyprus Airways flies into Brussels during the EU presidency.

Ryanair will keep its base in Paphos airport (2 aircraft) from where it flies to 15 destinations.

If FR believes there is sufficient case for withdrawl, it is a logical decision.



Quoting ju068 (Thread starter):
“Due to a combination of high fuel costs and traditionally low fares during the winter we have had to suspend all routes during the winter 2012/13 season,”

So much for you saying in your thread yesterday that:

"It is easier to blame it on the government and the airport authority than on themselves."



"Everyone writing for the Telegraph knows that the way to grab eyeballs is with Ryanair and/or sex."

Well I am sorry for using the usual Ryanair rhetoric and applying it to the Cypriot case.

Lucky I bought a ticket to Paphos for my brother's wedding and not Larnaca then, I would have been really screwed!

WTF does it mean that Cypriot government couldn't fulfill their demands? I'm glad that they didn't do it. Good for Cyprus!
