 British MPs warn about flights to Turkish-occupied CyprusAn early day motion tabled in the House of Commons on 4.11.96 reminds all British tour and airline companies that they risk losing their operating permits if they continue to blatantly ignore the UK government's policy not to allow flights to Turkish-occupied northern Cyprus or to permit passengers to be given the impression of direct flights from Britain to the area.
The motion expresses concern that passengers travelling from the UK to an internationally unrecognised final destination may not be aware that they are not covered for insurance purposes under the terms of the Warsaw Convention Treaty.
So far 38 MPs have signed the motion.
