Flights to Ayia Napa

Flights to Ayia Napa

The most convenient way to get to Ayia Napa is by flying into Larnaca Airport. This is Cyprus’ largest airport and the main international gateway to the island. Low-cost flights can be found from destinations all across the UK and the rest of Europe to Larnaca, especially during the peak summer travel season. With 60 airlines serving more than five million passengers annually, it is rarely hard to find a flight.

Daily direct flights run from Larnaca to cities in the Middle East, the Gulf and of course, major European, including British, cities. Cyprus Airways is the main carrier at Larnaca, supported by major European national carriers and a host of smaller budget airlines like Ryanair and easyJet. Charter flights also contribute to the air traffic, handling the steady flow of package tourists to the island.

The terminal at Larnaca Airport is small but well organised with a bright and airy atmosphere. Passengers will find a couple of cafés and bars inside providing a range of light meals, snacks and beverages. Gift shops, newsstands and a duty-free outlet handle any last-minute shopping needs, while the three banks in the Arrivals hall ensure all money matters are covered as soon as you arrive.

The Arrivals hall also contains a useful tourist information desk that can answer questions, give directions and assist with hotel bookings, transportation and other travel needs. This official airport office is supplemented by a handful of private tour companies on site who can arrange even more varieties of package tours in Ayia Napa.

Private taxis are the main form of transportation from Larnaca Airport to Ayia Napa, though most package tours include a shuttle bus for their customers that take them directly to their hotel. The drive from the airport to Ayia Napa takes anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes. Another option is to rent a car at the airport and drive yourself. Several international car hire chains have offices outside the Baggage Claim area, including Avis, Hertz and Sixt.
