Hermes Airports organises clean-up event along Larnaca coastline


For a fourth consecutive year, Hermes Airports highlighted its efforts to protect the environment through sustainable tourism, following a clean-up event along Larnaca’s coastline.


More precisely, the event took place on Pervolia’s coastal front, with Environment Commissioner, Ioanna Panayiotou, Pervolia’s Community Council President, Costas Tiggis, environmental organisation Let’s do it Cyprus, the Cyprus Sustainable Tourism Initiative and the Greenovation environmental group from Pervolia Community Council.




Hermes Airports CEO, Eleni Kaloyirou, said: “Such events have a dual meaning; we are given the opportunity to participate in a joint effort to clean and protect the environment, and we are also coming closer to our planet and nature by acquiring a collective consciousness.”


The event was organised via a environmental protection initiative organised by Vantage Airport Group, a Hermes Airports shareholder.



Volunteers from the Larnaca Airport community, such as staff from Swissport and LGS ground handling companies, representatives from aviation security company ICTS and personnel representing Cyprus Airports Food & Beverage, were also present.


Additionally, the event was also supported by Kapnos Airport Shuttle, Larnaca Municipality and environmental/technological services business, Hellenic Tzilalis.





Results from the clean-up event saw waste weighing over 20kg being collected.


Among the items removed from the beach by volunteers included; plastic bags, bottles, cans, cigarette butts and paper.


Hermes Airports took some of the waste for recycling purposes.
