We are an integral thread in the fabric of our community, bearing not just the flag of Cyprus but its heart and its spirit, maintaining deeply rooted ties with the Israeli communities. The decision to suspend our Larnaca-Tel Aviv route wasn’t made lightly, but safety has and will always be our highest priority. We stand in solidarity with all those affected and will do everything in our power to recommence operations when it is safe to do so."
