Direct flights to Larnaca from London Gatwick (LGW) are operated by Monarch, Thomas Cook Airlines, British Airways, and easyJet. London Stansted (STN) has direct flights with Jet2 and Cobalt Air, a new airline based in Cyprus.
Those travelling from London Heathrow (LHR) can choose from Aegean and British Airways, and direct flights from Luton (LTN) are with Monarch. Note that some routes may be seasonal.
There are direct flights from Manchester (MAN) with Thomas Cook Airlines and Jet2, and flights with a stopover are operated by Lufthansa with a stop in Munich, and Aegean with a stop in Athens. Direct flights from Birmingham (BHX) are available with Monarch and Romanian airline Blue Air, and indirect flights with Aegean and Lufthansa.
Monarch operates direct flights from Leeds Bradford (LBA), and easyJet flies from Liverpool (LPL). Departures from all other UK destinations involve a stopover, but if it’s a brief one, you can get to Lanarca in six hours or so and hit the beach shortly after.
Visit in the low season (December to February) for the cheapest flights and less crowds. Although it’s likely to be too cold for the beach, temperatures are pleasant for sightseeing and trips to inland villages, with a high likelihood of warm, sunny days.
Although demand is high in the peak season – especially July and August – it’s still possible to get a cheap deal if you book in advance and compare prices. It’s also worth looking at package holidays, which combine flights and accommodation and usually include a transfer to your destination, as this can be cheaper than booking each component separately.
A taxi from the airport to town takes around 15 minutes; public buses take around 45 minutes and run seven days a week from 6am to 11.45pm. Buses leave every hour, and tickets can be purchased from the driver.
If you’re travelling to resorts further on from Larnaca, such as Ayia Napa, Protaras and Nissi Beach, there are no direct buses – you will need to take a bus into Larnaca’s Finikoudes Promenade and then another to the resort. There are also companies offering both shared and private pre-booked transfers on air-conditioned minibuses.
All major cruise companies offer itineraries that stop off at Cyprus, and Larnaca’s port is just 2km (1.25 miles) from the city centre, making it easy to access the city’s attractions. Long-delayed plans to re-develop the port and adjoining marina have recently been put into motion again, and once completed will make the marina the largest in Cyprus, with space for over 1,000 yachts and a number of super-yachts. There are currently no ferry services to Larnaca.
British nationals do not need a visa to visit Cyprus. Passports for British and EU nationals only need to be valid for the duration of your stay.
