August traffic at Larnaca airport expected to match July’s


Traffic at Larnaca airport in August will be similar to that recorded in July, Hermes Airports said on Tuesday.

July saw a total of 524,609 passengers passing through the airport, sources told the Cyprus News Agency.

Based on the current schedule, flights are set to increase slightly, “gradually and until the end of the month,” they said, provided that the epidemiological data doesn’t take a serious turn for the worse.

Incoming flights are expected to reach 489 in the last week of August.

Most of July’s arrivals were from Russia, Greece, Ukraine, the UK, Germany, Austria, Poland and Israel, with a total of 722,145 passengers travelling to and from Larnaca and Paphos airports.

Flights to and from Paphos airport are also expected to gradually increase in August, with 187 flights mainly from the UK, Russia and Greece scheduled to arrive in the coming week.

This number is expected to rise to 200 and 210 in the second and third weeks of August.

In July, the UK was the third largest source of travellers for Paphos, after Russia and Greece.

Airport sources said flight schedules could change depending on the epidemiological data and restrictive measures both in Cyprus and abroad.
