Cyprus Turkish Airlines suspends all operations

Cyprus Turkish Airlines (Kibris Hava Yollari-KTHY) (Ercan) suspended all operations on June 21, 2010 due to mounting debts.

The airline announced the suspension on its website:

Trying to avoid filing for bankruptcy, the company had previously decided to sell the company this month. Atlasjet was the only bidder and did purchase a 50.1 percent share in the company on June 23. Atlasjet intends to restart operations with a new AOC.

The airline of the Turkish portion of Cyprus launched scheduled operations on February 3, 1975.

    1. Cyprus Turkish Airlines (as we reported) has suspended operations due to its debts. However Atlasjet (new part owner) is planning to resume operations. Whether they would honor your tickets is for them to answer, if they start operations. I recommend you contact the airport at Erbil to see if they have any news.
