A Wings of Lebanon flight made an unscheduled landing at Cyprus's Larnaca airport while returning from Mykonos to Beirut Sunday, the company's general manager told The Daily Star.This is not the first time WOL has been embroiled in controversy. Last year, one of their planes was spotted in Israel's Tel Aviv airport. The plane was being rented at the time by a Turkish company called Tailwind Airlines to run summer charter flights between Beirut and Antalya, they said. The plane had been sent for maintenance work in Turkey, and was supposed to be sent back to Lebanon after five days.Wings of Lebanon and Middle East Airlines are the only two licensed charter airlines in Lebanon, and while MEA is state-owned WOL is independent.
