Cyprus has launched an invitation for an expression of interest (EoI) in the exclusive license to use/exploit the logos and trademarks of Cyprus Airways (CA), one year after the liquidation of the island's former national air carrier.
Cyprus Airways entered into a voluntary liquidation in January 2015 as the European Commission considered a subsidy granted by the government to the carrier illegal.
The tender was published in the local and international press on January 5 of that same year. The use of the CA logos and trademarks concerns the operation of a flights schedule to and from Cyprus.
The Cyprus Privatisations Unit on June 2015 launched a process to determine interest in the transaction, with the government reserving the right to execute a formal process. The government decided to go ahead with the official process, estimating that investors would submit expression of interest in case of an official open tender, according to a quarterly report issued by the Privatisations Unit.
Under the tender terms, interested parties should submit their EoI by February 9 2016.
Parties that expressed interest under the process launched on June 15 will not be required to re-submit written EoI.
