Humanitarian Rescue Update 26/09/14


The c/s Salamis Filoxenia was assigned to assist in the rescue of 345 Syrian passengers from a shipwreck approximately 50 nautical miles south of Pafos as directed by the Cyprus Joint Rescue Coordination Center and according to the international regulations. Τhe rescue operation was successfully completed by 21:00 hrs local time, but the difficulties that the local Authorities faced with receiving the shipwreck passengers resulted in delaying the clearance to the c/s Salamis Filoxenia to depart for her scheduled voyage to Israel until the early morning hours of today. Therefore we were obliged to cancel the cruise to Israel on 25/09/14.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused to our passengers due to this purely humanitarian operation and would like to express our appreciation for the co-operation and understanding.
