LARNACA and Paphos airports are expected to handle half a million passengers on almost 3,000 flights between August 10 and 23, accounting for around a fifth of all 2015 arrivals.
Hermes Airports spokesman Adamos Aspris told CNA that passenger traffic would peak during that period.
“It is estimated that in those two weeks, there will be more than 2,900 flights moving 480,000 people at both Cyprus airports,” he said.
Larnaca would see more than 2,180 flights, transporting to and from Cyprus more than 350,000 people, while Paphos will handle 720 flights and around 130,000 passengers.
Greece, he said, remained the most popular destination for Cypriots flying out, particularly Chania in Crete, Santorini, Mykonos, Kavala, Skiathos, Rhodes and Corfu.
Aspris said since the beginning of the year, passenger traffic was up 3.2 per cent over last year.
