"The pilot changed route and is heading to Moscow airport in Russia to land and refuel" as the plane did not have enough fuel to take a longer flight path, Cypriot Transport Minister Yiannis Karousos told the official Cyprus News Agency. Ankara enforces an embargo on Cypriot air and shipping traffic.
