Ercan Airport new terminal scheduled to open 29 October

Work on the new runway and terminal at Ercan airport has been completed and the opening date has been set for 29 October.

The project which will cost 300 million euros, is being run by T&T, a group of Turkish companies Tasyapi and Terminal Yapi. T&T will have build-operate-transfer rights on the airport for 25 years.

The prime minister said that on completion, Ercan would comply with all international safety standards and would be suitable for direct flights.

He also criticised British High Commissioner to Cyprus Stephen Lillie’s comments to Turkish Cypriot daily ‘Yeni Duzen’ when he said the thought that it was unrealistic to expect direct trade and direct flights between North Cyprus and the UK. Tatar said that he had been in contact with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson who was reportedly in favour of lifting embargoes on the Turkish Cypriots.

The TRNC government believes that direct flights can be operated from Ercan based on the Chicago Convention* providing they comply with international safety standards.
