TUS Airways suspends Tel Aviv flights amid safety concerns

The Cyprus-based carrier temporarily halts services due to evolving situation in Israel


TUS Airways, a Cyprus-based carrier, has announced the suspension of all flights to and from Tel Aviv, effective from Saturday, October 14, 2023. This decision impacts routes between Tel Aviv and Larnaca, Pafos, Athens, and Heraklion.

In the preceding week, from Saturday, October 7, to Friday, October 13, TUS Airways operated its scheduled flights at the mentioned airports while adding more than 25 extra flights to and from Tel Aviv to assist passengers in reaching their destinations.

Philip Saunders, First Commercial Director of TUS Airways, expressed the airline's deep regret at the necessity to suspend the Tel Aviv flights. He emphasized that safety remains their top priority, and this decision followed a comprehensive assessment of the evolving situation in Israel. The airline's staff and flight crew had diligently worked to enhance the air link with Israel by operating additional flights. TUS Airways is committed to re-establishing the connection between Cyprus and Tel Aviv, with a goal to resume flights when safety and feasibility permits.

TUS Airways will continue daily evaluations of the situation and aims to restart flights as soon as conditions allow. The airline advises passengers whose flights have been canceled not to contact their Call Centre due to high call volumes, assuring that refunds for affected passengers will be processed promptly.

Further updates will be provided to passengers as the situation develops.
