The legal regime of air transport in Cyprus

Harry Stamelos


This paper aims to provide an understanding on the legal regime of air transport in Cyprus. In the first part, the basic laws of Cyprus are presented and analysed. There is a brief reference to statistical data regarding the number of passengers and flights to the two major airports of Cyprus, Larnaca and Paphos. In the second part, we examine the decision of the European Commission of 2015 regarding the Cyprus Airways. Cyprus Airways received illegal state aid from the Republic of Cyprus, and without being able to return it to the state in the middle of the financial crisis, it finally ended up its operation after many years of performing air transport. We conclude this paper by explaining the interface between competition policy and air transport policy in Cyprus and in the EU. Useful data regarding airlines and airports are presented in the appendices.
