Aviation & Shipping

As a member of the European Union, Cyprus has a unique strategic location at the crossroads of three continents and has been internationally established as an attractive shipping and aviation centre.

Harris Kyriakides provides legal advice and representation in Cyprus shipping law and Cyprus maritime law matters as well as matters pertaining to Cyprus aviation law.  Our team has extensive experience in a wide range of transactional and litigation work relating to the shipping, maritime and aviation industry in Cyprus, comprising legal, regulatory, corporate, financial and tax matters.

We count as our key strengths our dedication and responsiveness as well as being mindful of the challenges our clients face in the Cyprus shipping and Cyprus aviation sectors.

Shipping and Maritime

With high quality services and high standards of safety in such a strategic area, Cyprus is among the top five countries and territories in the world with the largest number of third-party ship-management companies in its territory. The Cyprus Ship Registry is highly ranked among international fleets and is continuously upgrading its services offering outstanding support to international shipping. Shipping companies can find in Cyprus a very supporting environment to thrive; here they also enjoy a number of privileges, from low set up and operating costs to special taxation provisions. Cyprus is a signatory to numerous international maritime conventions, it has double tax treaties with 45 countries and bilateral agreements of cooperation in merchant shipping with more than 20 countries.

Our Cyprus shipping lawyers provide comprehensive advice and representation on a wide range of legal services in the shipping industry and the particulars of Cyprus maritime law. Our services involve the provision of legal advice and representation on agreements, litigation and arbitration proceedings concerning shipbuilding, sale and finance of ships, formation and maintenance of shipping companies and ship registration in Cyprus, as well as related matters such as charterparties, maritime tax and maritime insurance.  In addition, the firm is representing clients in admiralty practice, litigation and arbitration proceedings.

Harris Kyriakides is also actively involved in the representation of the Cyprus Marine and Maritime Institute (CMMI) and is a strategic partner of the CMMI in the operation of the Maritime Legislation and Policy Lab at CMMI.


Harris Kyriakides has a long tradition in advising on Cyprus aviation law matters. We regularly assist aviation clients with transactional, regulatory, investigation and litigation matters associated with their aviation operations, particularly in the Larnaca International Airport, the main airport in Cyprus. Our Cyprus aviation lawyers have experience in environmental, customs and other regulatory matters, aircraft financing and leasing, aviation regulation, and policy and business aviation issues.  In addition to counseling clients on aviation matters, we also provide guidance on operational issues that are common to every business, including antitrust issues, contracts, environmental issues, imports/exports, bankruptcy and restructuring, insurance, intellectual property, employment and ancillary matters.
