TRNC Airport expected to start receiving inbound flights on Wednesday

As coronavirus cases in the TRNC continue to rise, Parliament on Monday held an extraordinary session to amend the ‘law’ on infectious diseases that will allow the ‘health ministry’ to introduce penalties such as fines and shutting down premises found to violate measures aimed at preventing the spread of the virus. 

Last week, the TRNC announced that Liechtenstein, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia and Georgia from category A has been moved to B, meaning that passengers from these countries will remain in quarantine for one week upon their arrival in the north.

The Ministry of Health on Sunday announced that it has signed an agreement with another hotel which will be hosting people who must be quarantined due to the coronavirus measures in place.

Prime minister’ Ersin Tatar last week had announced that Covid-19 patient transfers to Turkey had started.

The TRNC temporarily halted inbound flights to the north last week citing inadequate quarantine space for arriving passengers.

Though it was initially announced the measures would be in place until September 13, the airport is now expected to start receiving inbound flights on Wednesday.

Turkish Cypriot authorities require people arriving from category B countries to quarantine for seven days, and people from category C countries for 14 days. 

People testing positive to coronavirus are also quarantined as are their contacts. These people stay in hotels monitored by authorities
