Ercan airport offers strong competition with Larnaca

16 January 2013

Flights from Ercan airport run at around 80% of those from Larnaca airport and are double those of out of Paphos airport.

In November last year, Ercan airport saw 1626 flights compared to 2200 from Larnaca and 619 from Paphos.

For a more up to date comparison, looking at one day’s flight volumes yesterday, Greek Cypriot newspaper ‘Fileftheros’ found that there were 43 flights at Ercan and 51 from Larnaca. The paper says that apart from the South losing revenues because of increased activity from Ercan, there is also a political and image issue.
