CTA have just contacted us re our flights in October to and from UK, changing the flying times. I have heard that others have had their flights changed in advance. Are they consolidating their flights and trying to become more efficient and cost effective?

Maybe or maybe not. It could just be simple case that they want cheaper landing and take off fees at airports. This is because from 1st November Passenger Taxes on all flights into and out of the UK will rise by a minimum of a 1 but for some it could see a 30 rise for flights over 6,000 miles. I know the upper rate doesn't affect the TRNC, but if other countries are doing it too then don't forget that the price you pay also includes taxes for landing and taking off in Turkey.

So with these tax rises, and oil prices starting to edge up again without the exchange rate going up the difference between a plane landing today and landing in November could have its costs increased by over 600. That's a lot for an airline to swallow, unless the airline start putting in place Supplements, which I give KTHY much credit, is one thing they don't do. Once you've paid, you've paid.
