Cyprus has banned airlines registered in Belarus from using its airspace and airport, Reuters reported.
The ban entered into effect on May 28.
Last week, EU leaders agreed to ban Belarusian carriers from flying over the bloc’s airspace, after the country forced a passenger plane en route from Athens to Lithuania to land in Minsk in order to arrest a journalist critical of the government.
The same advisory prohibits Cyprus-registered airlines from entering Belarusian airspace. All flights to and from Belarus have also been suspended.
