Twenty flights to and from Thessaloniki have been cancelled after Greece imposed a two-week lockdown in the region, airports operator Hermes said on Tuesday.
According to Hermes, around 5,000 passengers will be affected.
Seven flights were scheduled from Larnaca to Thessaloniki every week, four of which by Aegean and three by WizzAir.
In addition, three Ryanair flights were scheduled to fly to Thessaloniki from Paphos airport every week.
Greece suspended all flights to and from Makedonia airport in Thessaloniki starting 6pm Tuesday to November 17, as part of the measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Passengers who had booked a ticket for this period, will be informed about their choices either directly by the company or their travel agent, Greece’s Civil Protection Service said.
Cypriot residents in Thessaloniki who had arranged or wish to return to the island may do so through a different airport in Greece such as Eleftherios Venizelos Airport in Athens, the foreign ministry said in an announcement on Monday.
