CTA files a case against the British Government
The Cyprus Turkish Airlines and tour operator CTA Holidays Limited have filed a law suit against the British Civil Aviation Authority for its rejection to issue a license to operate direct non-stop flights between Britain and North Cyprus.
A statement issued by Cyprus Turkish Airlines said that the case had been filed at a British court on Monday.
The British Civil Aviation Authority had rejected the Cyprus Turkish Airlines’ application for direct flights on the grounds that such a move would be in violation of the Convention on International Civil Aviation, also known as Chicago Convention.
The Cyprus Turkish Airlines expressed the view that the British government had misinterpreted the Convention, which it said, allows non-stop direct flights.
The statement also reminded that the British government had repeatedly expressed its support for direct flights between Britain and North Cyprus as long they would comply with international law.
