Civil Aviation spokesman Haris Antoniadis lit a fire during a discussion before the Audit Committee regarding a possible second trip of the President of the Republic to the Seychelles, on a private plane of Saudi Arabia, a friend of the President, with 41 other photos.
According to the representative of the Civil Aviation, “on August 3, 2015 at 4.04 in the morning, a Boeing 767 200 N767 K aircraft took off from Larnaca airport bound for the Seychelles, carrying 14 passengers. The same plane on 13/8/2015 landed at Larnaca airport, at 13.38 noon coming from the Seychelles. The flight was private. “
The representative of the Civil Aviation clarified that he is not able to know on private flights if the President of the Republic was on the plane, since it is not the passengers who are registered, but the number.
What he clarified is that he carried code 1 as a presidential flight and that is why he is exempt from all airport fees.
According to what the deputies complained, six days after the trip, the second wife of the Saudi owner of the aircraft was naturalized. The naturalization of this was deemed irregular in the conclusion of Kalogirou and by the Auditor General, since in Cyprus there is no legislation that covers someone's second wife. The plane can carry more than 200 passengers.
Representatives of the President who attended the meeting, when previously asked, were not able to answer if the President traveled on the specific plane.
