Cyprus Holiday Home - Accessibility

  • There is easy accessibility to Cyprus with flights from Gatwick, Heathrow, Birmingham, Manchester, Luton and most regional airports, to either of the international airports Paphos or Larnaca.

  • Cyprus is served by some 30 major airlines and there are regular flights to Paphos from across UK.

  • Whilst the flights are about 4 hours 30 minutes from the UK, these are still fairly short flight times considering the year round climate that would rival other far-off destinations around the world

  • Budget airlines are starting to make Cyprus more accessible, boosting Cyprus' growth as a key holiday and retiree market, the most important of which, by far, is the UK

Monarch Airlines now flies from Luton airport to Larnaca from March 26, offering a four day a week service to Cyprus, making the island a hot holiday destination. This will also introduce greater levels of price competitiveness.

  • Airlines running scheduled services to Cyprus include British Airways, KLM, Lufthansa, Aegean Airlines, Emirates and Cyprus Airways.

  • The many budget and charter options include Avro, Excel, ThomsonFly, Helios and First Choice, which fly from airports all over the UK, among them Exeter, Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff, Manchester, Hull, East Midlands, Newcastle and Edinburgh.

  • There are no direct flights to northern Cyprus, which is not recognised by the international community, so all flights go via Turkey. Crossing the border is not a simple task, however - most taxis refuse to do the crossing - so if you're heading for the south, it's best to fly straight there.
