Buyers seeked for defunct Cyprus Airways trademark, logo
Cyprus on Monday (June 15, 2015) invited expressions of interest for the trademark and logo of defunct Cyprus Airways, the national carrier which shut down in January for illegally receiving state aid.
Authorities said interested parties had until July 24, 2015 to submit expressions of interest (EoI) for the logo and trademark of the carrier.
“The purpose of this EoI process is to determine interest of prospective parties for the exclusive license to use/exploit the Logos and Trademarks for the operation of a flights schedule out of the Republic of Cyprus,” the privatisation commissioner’s office said in a statement.
The 65-year-old carrier suspended operations after the European Commission ordered it to repay more than €65 million it received in illegal state aid.
Cyprus Airways’ nickname was the “Flying Moufflon”, after its logo, an endemic mountain sheep.
