  • [01] PRESIDENT ATHLETS - OLYMPICS

    The official ceremony to welcome the Cypriot mission at the Olympic Village in Beijing will be held on Saturday, in the presence of President of the Republic Demetris Christofias.

    President Christofias participated on Thursday evening in the banquet hosted for heads of state and government in Beijing for the opening ceremony. During the banquet, President Christofias met his counterparts from France, Slovakia and Croatia, among others.

    According to the Cyprus Sports Writers Union representative Petros Hadjichristodoulou, who is covering the Olympic Games in Beijing, President Christofias said Cyprus will be promoted through its participation in the Olympic Games, especially if the Cypriot athletes win medals.

    [02] GROUND HANDLERS AIRPORTS

    Ground handlers at Larnaca and Paphos International Airports pledged their commitment on Friday to work more intensely so that ground services at the two airports reach the level required by modern and European countries such as Cyprus.

    Ground handlers Cyprus Airways-Swissport-Vassilopoulos and Louis-led LGS Handling as well as operators Hermes Airports Ltd met Friday Minister of Communications and Works Nicos Nicolaides to discuss the situation after the two companies were fined by the government 112 thousand euro for bad airport services as the tourist season reached its peak.

    In statements after the meeting, Nicolaides said he was informed about the current situation prevailing at the airports, adding that all factors involved, including the Ministry and the Civil Aviation Department, will play their role in an effort to get rid of the problems that continue to exist at the airports.
