Advert Travel Gazette

The Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO) is focusing on two actions to cover the gap left by XL Airways, one of the major British airlines, which has been forced to close during the past few days.

Senior CTO officer Christos Moustras said that XL Airways was scheduled to transport some 10,000 tourists to Cyprus by the end of October.

He said that the total number of British tourists brought to the island from May to October this year via XL was 70,000.

Moustras said the aim is for the 10,000 tourists to travel to Cyprus but added that it was up to the clients themselves.
