Cyprus Airways changes Beirut flight timing, citing Syria

Cyprus Airways has rescheduled its evening flight from Larnaca to the Lebanese capital Beirut on Thursday, citing possible military strikes by the US and its allies against Syria, following an alleged chemical weapons attack, Reuters has reported. Effective Thursday, the 8:30 pm flight out of Larnaca had been moved to 5:30 am to avoid an overnight stay in Beirut. The Cypriot national carrier flies from Larnaca to Beirut, a 30-minute flight away, once a day, six days a week.
