About The Group

Hermes is the operator of both Larnaka International Airport and Pafos International Airport. A consortium comprised of nine local and international shareholders, it assumed management & control of the Airports in 2006 under a 25-year BOT Concession Agreement with the Republic of Cyprus. The new passenger terminal in Pafos opened in November 2008 and in Larnaka in November 2009, making this the biggest construction project ever undertaken in Cyprus.

Hermes Airports’ core value, ‘As One: achieving customer service excellence’, forms the heart of the organisation and has driven several upgrades that include:

  • Larnaka Airport’s Solar Park is expected to produce around 6 million kWh of power per year, while the respective Solar Park at Pafos Airport is expected to produce 1.9 million kWh of power per year.
  • An extensive refurbishment of Larnaka’s commercial areas 
  • The introduction and operation of new technologies at both Larnaka and Pafos Airports, including mobile and remote check-in counters, real-time passenger information, and BorderXpress interactive kiosks
  • A new, upgraded website that is WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) compliant and offers a chatbot service
  • Roommate’ facilities that are being rolled out across Larnaka Airport and will provide audio guidance (in both English and Greek) in disabled access bathrooms
  • Blind Paths at Larnaka and Pafos Airports have been redesigned using the Guardian Tactile System for the use of visually impaired passengers

Hermes Airports' goal through its various sustainability initiatives is to support the communities, protect the environment, and nurture a safe and productive workplace through responsible actions. The first Sustainability Report, covering 2021, has been prepared by the Global Reporting Initiative framework (GRI Standards). Here you can read more. 

Furthermore, in 2019, the company announced its participation in the ACI’s Airport Carbon Accreditation Scheme, having achieved Level 3+ Neutrality.

As a result of its ambitious air service development strategy and highly competitive incentive schemes, hybrid, network, and LCC airlines & tour operators alike are drawn to its Airports. During 2024 winter season, 30 airlines will operate flights to 35 countries and 102 destinations from Larnaka and Pafos airports.

Passenger traffic in 2023 had an increase of 3% compared to 2019, marking the best performance ever recorded at Cyprus Airports, with more than 11.6 million passengers.
