Scandinavian countries have been targeted as good tourist markets and the first flight from these arrived at Ercan last night.
Tourism Minister, Unal Ustel was there to greet them. He pointed out that his objective was to bring in tourists from Scandinavia on charter flights. He hoped that each tourist would leave as an ambassador of the TRNC and return regularly.
Mr Ustel said that his Ministry was set to improve the incentives for winter tourism and that similar flights would be coming in from other Scandinavian countries as well as Ukraine and Russia.
He then went on to say that the recently privatised Ercan airport would soon be seeing significant investment and developments.
