Landing system of Larnaca Airport is “Blind”

The Greek Cypriot Minister of Public Works and Transport Marios Dimitriadis announced that they will not be able to improve the landing system of Larnaca Airport which provides safe landing to the planes at foggy weathers due to the high cost.

Fileleftheros newspaper which is published in South Cyprus reported under the headline “Landing System Remains ‘Blind’… Dimitriadis says we cannot throw off millions of Euros for 8 planes” that this statement of Dimitriadis was made in response to a question of the President of Ecologists and Environmentalists Movement Yorgos Perdikis.

According to the news Dimitriadis indicated that improving the system requires millions of Euros and in 2014 only 8 planes needed the system while landing in the fog, 12 million euros are needed to improve the system today, and noted that it’s not worth making an expenditure of this much for 8 planes.
