To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, if he will review the UK's policy on aircraft disembarkation for passengers flying from North Cyprus' Ercan Airport.
5 July 2021
A review by FCDO in 2018 concluded that no alteration to the position on travel between Ercan airport and the UK was possible. In accordance with legal obligations under the 1944 Chicago Convention, there are no direct flights between Ercan and the UK. Passengers who book a flight from Ercan to Turkey and then an onward flight to the UK are required to disembark in Turkey before boarding their UK bound flight, as these are separate flights.
