Cyprus bids farewell to its outdated Larnaca International Airport terminal, and welcomes the opening of the well-awaited brand new terminal just in time for the arrival of Christmas and New Year visitors taking Cyprus holidays.

Brand new terminal opens at Larnaca International Airport

Visitors taking Cyprus holidays will now be able to use the brand new terminal at Larnaca International Airport prior to the forthcoming closure of the busy airport's old terminal.

The new terminal, names Zenon, is now open to flights bringing travellers on their Cyprus holidays and business trips.

The old terminal had been operating since 1975 when it was initially used as a makeshift terminal after Nicosia International Airport was destroyed in the Turkish invasion. Over the last couple of decades, the terminal helped the Cypriot region become a popular tourist destination, operating a number of cheap flights to and from the region and boosting the area's tourism industry.

As a result of the increase in people taking Cyprus holidays, a number of additional Larnaca hotels, Ayia Napa hotels and high end properties have opened in the area, which has helped Cyprus' travel and hospitality sector considerably.

The brand new terminal cost over 656 million Euros and is expected to receive up to 7.5 millions flight passengers a year, whilst providing an efficient operational service.

With fantastic weather all year round, stunning scenery, and friendly hospitable locals, the Mediterranean island of Cyprus is fast becoming a popular tourist destination, with a large number of flights being offered from various airports across the UK and many other international airports.

The old terminal will continue to operate for one more year before the site will be used for an airport hotel and additional amenities.
