The plane carrying the Trabzonspor squad has taken an unusual route to reach the Greek Cypriot city of Limassol. Instead of traveling to Larnaca Airport via the Greek island of Rhodes, the plane changed its route to go directly to Larnaca Airport after taking off from Trabzon.

Trabzonspor takes on Apollon Limassol in its first game in the Europa League today, kicking off at 8:05 p.m.

The Greece-based Astra Airlines plane took off from Trabzon Airport at 9:30 a.m. on Sept. 18. After the take-off, the pilot announced that the route had been changed and that they would be flying directly to Larnaca, thanks to initiatives by the Turkish Foreign Ministry.
