Aviation: Cyprus

Question for Department for Transport

UIN 107831, tabled on 16 October 2017

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, if his Department will review the decision to increase security requirements on passengers flying between Ercan International Airport and UK airports.

All flights from Ercan to the UK are subject to additional passenger screening at the departure gate in Turkey. We believe these are necessary measures, especially given aviation remains a systemic target for terrorists, and those with malicious intent. We work with our international partners on aviation security, and keep measures under constant review.
