Cyprus sees record passenger numbers in 2015-1
Hermes Airports recently celebrated 10 years of running Cyprus’ two main airports at Larnaca and Paphos. Last year the two airports handled a record 7.7 million passengers despite the demise of the country’s flag carrier, Cyprus Airways, at the beginning of the year. As with Budapest in Hungary, it seems that the collapse of an unprofitable flag-carrier can actually be good news for the country’s airports.

Blue Air, Ryanair and newcomer Cobalt operate bases in Cyprus after collapse of Cyprus Airways , who's name has been bought by a Russian Airline.
