For 44 years, the Nicosia International Airport has remained shut, a painful relic of Cyprus’s turbulent history.
The island has effectively been divided since the '74 when Turkish forces invaded.
The airport became one of the main targets.
The division persists to this day, with a United Nations-patrolled buffer zone cutting across the island.
Long abandoned, the airport complex has also been used over the years as one of the sites for the launch of inter-communal talks in the efforts to find a solution on the island’s impasse.
But as long as peace remains elusive, the airport’s crumbling walls and deserted landscape will only serve as a stark emblem of the island’s decades-long division.
