Iraq-Cyprus flights relaunched

Zagrosjet Airlines yesterday launched flights to Cyprus from the Iraqi town of Erbil.
The Larnaca-Erbil route will be carried out once a week and will be operated with Airbus 320 and 321 aircraft.
Chief Executive Officer of Hermes Wes Porter, welcomed Zagrosjet to Cyprus, adding the airline “is reconnecting Cyprus with Iraq, which creates new prospects for co-operation in all fields such as enterprise, tourism and the cross-cultural exchange of ideas and culture.
“I am confident that travellers in Erbil will quickly recognise that Cyprus, besides being an amazing tourist destination, is also a portal through which Iraqis can travel to the rest of the world such as Europe and North Africa. At the same time the travelling public of Cyprus has a unique opportunity as of today to travel to Erbil and get to know the diamond of Northern Iraq and the Middle East,” he added.
Speaking on behalf of Zagrosjet, Dr Kregar Gardi, Commercial Director and Member of the Board of Directors, stressed that Cyprus is a developing tourist destination for Iraqis.
To welcome the first flight from Erbil, Hermes Airports offered arriving passengers traditional Cypriot delicacies and drinks.
