On Tuesday, 30th of August the Cyprus Council of Ministers approved two bills: a bill providing for the establishment of a private state-owned company that will provide air traffic services and a second bill amending the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) law. The bills will be submitted to Parliament for approval.
This is certainly good news as the government believes that the new company, that will undertake air traffic services from the state-owned Department of Civil Aviation (DCA), will become a solution to the long-standing problems of delays in Cyprus air space.
Mr. Marios Demetriades, Minister of Transport, Communication and Works said that this step is a huge change in the field of air traffic control, a sector that has caused problems to Cyprus in past years, and also added that more effort has been recently made with the assistance of Eurocontrol, the European Organization for the safety of air navigation, than before.
“This effort should go ahead because such a decision is the only way to achieve results and reduce delays in our air space permanently, while any other past solutions were short-lived” he mentioned.
Moreover, Mr. Demetriades noted that traffic in Cyprus air space has been increasing in the past several years due to problems in the region as well as the increase in air traffic in Cyprus.
“Therefore we believe it is very important for this law to be approved and to set up the new company and address the delays,” he said, recalling that Cyprus was under close scrutiny both from Eurocontrol and the European Commission on the matter.
According to Eurocontrol, Cyprus is among the top twenty delay-generating locations in Europe.
