El Al cancels five flights to Cyprus due to low demand (updated)

Israel’s El Al Airlines has cancelled five flights to Cyprus due to lack of demand caused by the coronavirus, reports said.

“Due to the special circumstances due to the coronavirus event, including the guidelines and recommendations of the Ministry of Health to the public, we are forced to make commercial adjustments on certain flights, and also offer alternatives on other flights. We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience,” El Al was quoted as saying.

The changes affect five of the airline’s scheduled flights to Cyprus — three in March and two in April. El Al operates 12 weekly flights to Cyprus.

Along with destinations for which travel warnings had been issued, the airline also cancelled flights to European capitals such as London, Vienna, Frankfurt and Budapest.
