Getting To Cyprus

Cyprus Airports

Getting to Cyprus, will be generally by air, unless you are on a cruise ship, or arrive from Greece by boat and disembark at the port in Limassol.

You arrive in the north by boat or air from Turkey, but for the minute there is only information regarding an arrival in the southern part of the island.

Where Are The Airports?

There are 3 airports in Cyprus and 2 of them are in the south (the republic of Cyprus). 1 other is in the north and is called Ercan, and you can only arrive from Turkey, you cannot fly directly from any other country.

Covering the eastern end of the Island and dealing mostly with international scheduled flights is Larnaca Airport

And covering the western end of the island and mostly chartered flights for tour companies is Paphos Airport

What Flights Come To The Island?

You can check out the local national carrier, Cyprus Airways if you want to take a scheduled flight with them but many countries have their national airlines flying into Larnaca.

You Mentioned A Port?

Limassol has the only port for freight and passengers so if you come by ship or want to leave by ship you have to go there. You can travel to Greece, some of the larger Islands like Crete & Rhodes and travel to Haifa in Israel as well and Port Said and Alexandria in Egypt.

Note: You cannot travel to Cyprus with a car from Greece or Italy at the current time, you can only be a foot passenger.

It has been like it for some time and looks set to continue for the future.
