Traffic has been restored at Larnaca airport after it was diverted because of an accident that took place at the airport’s runway earlier on Friday.

Nobody was injured during the incident.

“Traffic at Larnaca airport has been restored with all flights to and from the airport landing and taking off normally,” a Hermes Airports spokesperson said, according to reports.

“A small aircraft belonging to the forestry department had burst tyre while landing resulting in its immobilisation on the runway,” a Hermes Airports spokesperson told the Cyprus News Agency.

No one was hurt during the accident while the crisis management centre of the airport was activated. Due to the incident, four flights from Larnaca airport were delayed for a short time.

Both the pilot and the crew of the forestry aircraft were unharmed, a forestry department spokesperson said after the incident.
