In the departure hall of Ercan International Airport, Turkish Cypriots
commemorate the 76th anniversary of the death of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk,
the founder and first president of modernTurkey. As Northern Cyprus is a
self-declared state that is only recognized by Turkey, travelers from
Europe have to touch down first at a Turkish airport before they can
continue their flight to Ercan Havalimani. The stamps in their passport
will not be recognized by any government — but they are collector’s
items for sure.
