Passenger on Cyprus flight fined for not wearing mask properly

A passenger flying from Greece to Cyprus was fined for refusing to wear his mask properly during the flight, it emerged on Monday.

The incident happened on Sunday on a Wizz Air flight from Athens to Larnaca. The passenger, a young male sitting in the rear of the aircraft, refused to wear his mask properly despite repeated appeals from flight attendants throughout the flight.

The cabin crew notified the pilot of the incident and as soon as the plane landed in Larnaca, at 11.40pm, it was boarded by police officers.

Passengers were not allowed off the aircraft until the officers checked the passenger’s papers and issued a fine for failure to wear a mask.

Those with Covid-19 tests were allowed off the plane first, with some delay.

They were followed by the rest, including the youth, who gave samples for testing. Passengers eventually left the airport at 1am. Only Cypriots and permanent residents can take the test upon arrival.
