About The Airport
Larnaka International Airport – Glafkos Clerides is Cyprus’ main international gateway and the largest of the island’s airports. It is managed by Hermes Airports, the operator that is also responsible for Pafos International Airport.
The new passenger terminal of Larnaka International Airport welcomed its first passengers in November 2009. Since then, Cyprus’ status as one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe has led to a steady increase in traffic. In 2019, Larnaka handled a total of 8.3 million passengers, a record high.
A number of major upgrades and improvements have recently been introduced to the Airport’s facilities, including:
- The 'Sense of Place' project, which aims to imbue the airports with visual and sensory elements from Cyprus' culture over a three-year period
- An extensive refurbishment of Larnaka’s commercial areas, that is scheduled for completion in August 2020
- The introduction and operation of new technologies including mobile and remote check-in counters, real-time passenger information and BorderXpress interactive kiosks
- ‘Roommate’ facilities that provide audio guidance (in both English and Greek) in disabled access bathrooms
- Blind Paths that have been redesigned using the Guardian Tactile System for the use of visually impaired passengers
A sophisticated road network, in addition to a number of transport options mean that Larnaka and other popular holiday & business destinations are easily accessible from the Airport.
