Egypt's parliament to ratify liberalisation of flights bilateral agreement with Cyprus
CNA - Cyprus/Pafos 12/09/2018 17:16


Speaker of the House of Representatives of Egypt Ali Abdel Aal, who is paying Cyprus an official visit, has told Pafos Mayor Phedonas Phedonos that his country’s parliament would discuss and ratify within the coming weeks a bilateral agreement with Cyprus on the liberalisation of flights from and towards Alexandria and Cairo airports, a Pafos municipality press release says.

The Egyptian official visited on Wednesday morning Pafos’ archaeological sites.

Once the agreement has been ratified it is a matter of time before direct flights start between Pafos and Alexandria as was the goal of a recent twinning between the two cities.
