Airport information charges

Airport Information (Charges)

  • Hermes Airports Ltd through a BOT procedure is managing both airports for a 25 year period since 2006

  • Airport Costs

    • GEN 4.1 Aerodrome Charges of the Cyprus Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP)

  • Tenant Relationships in terms of space or activities to be negotiated with Hermes.


Service provision by third parties

Service Provision by third parties

  • Ground Servicing

    • Flight preparation

    • Passenger/ Crew transportation

    • Fuel provision

    • Catering

    • Protection of aircraft

    • Maintenance

  • Hermes can provide a list of eligible/specialized third party providers


Maintenance facilities lca

Maintenance Facilities (LCA)

A special service provided

for the light A/C, is the

creation of maintenance

facilities at the new

General Aviation Area.

The size of the two

hangars is such that can

provide shelter for

maintaining a large

range of A/C types.


Safety regulations

Safety Regulations

  • Current Practices in Safety for General Aviation Flights as per ICAO Annexes (Standards and Recommended Practices),

    EU and National Legislation

  • Provisions and Requirements in the Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP)

  • All tenants must adhere to the local programs contained in the Airport Operational Manual (AOM) such as ERPP, SMS, AVOP etc.


Safety measures lca

Safety Measures (LCA)

As mitigation measures Hermes Airports Ltd through its airside department in cooperation with the ATC decided the following:

  • A Light Aircraft bulletin regarding all light A/C movements from/to the new G.A. area was issued by the AIS with effect the 10th March 2014.

  • An Airside Alert Bulletin regarding Removal of Follow Me service for aircraft taxiing in and out General Aviation Apron 2 was issued by Hermes Airports Ltd with effect the 10th March 2014.

  • An amendment of the Apron 2 Surface Movement Guidance and Control System SOP was issued on the 6th March 2014 by Hermes Airports Ltd, including all the new procedures regarding movements of light A/C to/from the new G.A. area.


General aviation safety lca

General Aviation Safety (LCA)

The relocation of the light A/C from the old to the new General Aviation Area created a safer environment for them and to the Airside in general.

  • The pavement is concrete base minimizing the loose material created at the old G.A. area.

  • The position of the new G.A. area is not in close proximity of larger taxiing aircraft, that can create an unsafe condition due to the jet blast produced by them. This was a big issue at the old G.A. area as it was located very close to TWY C.

  • The lighting system of the new G.A. area is enhanced when compared with the old G.A. area where no lighting was in place.

  • The new G.A. area is covered by CCTV, coverage that was not possible at the old G.A. area.


Removal of follow me service to from the g a area lca

Removal of Follow Me Service to/from the G.A. area (LCA)

With initiation date the 10th of March 2014 Follow Me Service for the entrance and exit of A/C to/from the new G.A. area has been abolished.

  • Two elevated A/C crossing signs

    have been added making the

    existent A/C crossing marking on

    the pavement more effective.

  • At night time portable flashing

    red lights are placed at the root of

    the elevated crossing sign alerting

    vehicles’ operators that they are

    approaching a designated Hot Spot,

    i.e. crossing of Taxi-Lane CU.

Airport Security

Screening of Persons (Staff and Crews) Entering Airside

Methods of Passenger Screening at the airports

- WTMD

- HHMD

- Hand Search

Airport Security

Vehicle Examination

Security measures apply also to vehicles.

All vehicles entering the security restricted area of the airports are examined in order to prevent prohibited articles from being introduced into these areas.

Aircraft Security

  • Aircraft security is further divided into the security searches on aircrafts before departure and to the protection of aircrafts against unauthorized entrance.

  • Aircrafts arriving from non EU countries are subjected to an aircraft security search in order to ensure that no prohibited articles are present on board.

  • In addition, every aircraft must be protected against unauthorized access by:

  • Ensuring that persons seeking to gain unauthorized access are challenged promptly

  • By having its external doors closed.
