Pobeda Airlines has been launching flights to Paphos (Cyprus) from two Russian cities since July, the press service of the carrier said. From July 7, the flight program starts from Moscow (Vnukovo), and from July 10 – from Yekaterinburg. Flights will be operated once a week.
“Paphos will become the second city in Cyprus where Pobeda flies this summer: weekly flights are planned to Larnaca from Moscow, Yekaterinburg, Kazan, Perm and Chelyabinsk,” the company said in a statement.
Regular flights between the Russian Federation and Cyprus were terminated in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Until now, there are no regular flights, and the existing flights have a cargo-passenger status.
At the same time, Cyprus has lifted a number of travel restrictions for Russians. In particular, vaccinated travelers are exempted from the mandatory PCR test. The vaccination certificate must be uploaded to the CyprusFlightPass platform 24 hours before departure. Unvaccinated passengers need to undergo two PCR tests. The first one – 72 hours before departure, and the second – upon arrival in the republic at its own expense. Vaccinated travelers may undergo selective PCR testing upon entry into Cyprus.
Only important. For the pros only.
