Cyprus Airways organises special flight for children with autism

Cyprus Airways

Cyprus Airways joined hands with Flight Safety Foundation and the Cyprus Autism Association to organise a special event for children with autism.

The event, which took place on October 22, saw 60 children with autism, along with their guardians, visit Larnaca International Airport to take part in a special 20-minute flight with Cyprus Airways. The travel experience started with their arrival at the hub and was followed by all the necessary steps, from check-in to boarding a Cyprus Airways aircraft.

The Cyprus Airways aircraft took off at 13:00 and landed 20 minutes later. This special flight was achieved with the practical support of Hermes Airports and Petrolina.
