  • Description

    More than twenty aircraft and nearly a thousand passengers waited in Nicosia on Wednesday (9 May) after being diverted from strife-torn Lebanon the previous day.

    Activity at Beirut Airport was virtually at a stand-still as Lebanese Government forces clashed with Palestine commandos around the airport in Nicosia -- normally half-empty at this time of the year, when the tourist population is low. Some airliners diverted from Beirut flew on to other destinations, while those at Nicosia waited for information on the situation at Beirut Airport.
