Class action lawsuit for TRNC airlines

There were reports yesterday that disappointed passengers have won a landmark legal case against Cyprus Turkish Airlines and Atlas Jet.

669 people whose travel was cancelled by the bankruptcy of CTA sued the company, along with Atlas jet who took over CTA operations and flights. They took their compensation case to court, aided by the Alevi Culture Centre and Goldsworth Solicitor, where The Alevi Culture Centre arranged for a class action rather than individual claims.

The Centre produced a press statement yesterday stating that the court had reached a judgement. Total compensation was put at £850,000.

Separately, a UK based lawyer was asked to comment on the judgement and said that if this compensation was not paid, then there was a risk that any North Cyprus Government Ministers coming to the UK could be arrested for non- compliance with the judgement.
