CTC-ARI launches “Living Cyprus” with Hermes Airports and Cyprus Airports F&B

Passengers flying through Larnaka International Airport this April will get to experience many aspects of Cypriot tradition during a very special showcasing of the island’s rich cultural heritage.

Typical scenes from the Cypriot countryside will be recreated in the airport’s departures area. A traditional taverna will offer unique flavours and dishes of Cyprus, Cypriot music and dance ensembles and arts and crafts are some of the other elements that make up the image of Cyprus at the heart of the “Living Cyprus” event taking place at Larnaka Airport.

The event, – a true Trinity partnership – is co-organized by CTC-ARI (managing company for the duty free shops), Cyprus Airports Food and Beverage (managing company for the cafes and restaurants) and Hermes Airports.

Speaking at a press conference, at Larnaka Airport, the Chief Executive Officer of Hermes Airports, Mr Wes Porter, expressed his great satisfaction for the organising of the event and noted that “Hermes Airports supports every effort which aims to the development of the tourist product of Cyprus and by extension the economy of the country”. We remain committed, he noted, in our active participation, in the greater effort made by Cypriots, to achieve the recovery of the economy of the country.

In a statement, Mr Marios Loucaides, Chairman of CTC-ARI and Managing Director of CTC, noted that “what all three companies are trying to do is to remind mainly our foreign visitors of the beautiful moments they experienced in Cyprus during their stay and to encourage them to keep these lovely memories in their hearts until the next time they visit our island”.

Garrett Coogan General Manager CT-ARI noted “Cyprus is a beautiful Island with a very unique culture, cherished traditions and fantastic food & wine.  It is super that my team and I can play our part, in this special event promoting Cyprus. I’ve no doubt that it not only succeeds in providing retailtainment for our customers, encouraging them to shop more but is also a great event for the airport community  to be involved in.”

For the whole of April travellers at Larnaka Airport will have the opportunity to enjoy culinary treats that literally excite the senses and bring back memories, especially for our tourists, of trips to the Cypriot countryside. Beyond the general effort to promote Cypriot tradition, this event also aims to strengthen the various promotional activities that are geared towards making Cyprus an established favourite all year round destination.
