The Council of Ministers, in the light of what is stated in the proposal, to initiate the necessary studies for the establishment of the national airline, which will make a great contribution to the economy of the TRNC, especially the tourism and education sector, and to make the necessary preparations for the Protocol in order to ensure the implementation of the aforementioned airline, together with the Ministry of Public Works and Transport.

*North Cyprus did have its own national airline – Cyprus Turkish Airlines (KTY) which began operations in 1975. However, despite a promising future, the airline went bankrupt in 2010. Poor management and overly powerful unions were partly to blame, some observers say. [Ed.]
