The aviation industry has been highly affected and the airport remains empty.



The Republic of Cyprus Government and the administration in the north following the policy changes announced that the British nationals will not be allowed to cross either the Greek Cypriot or Turkish Cypriot crossing points in either direction this will be regardless of their residency  status until further notice.
