You can fly into either Larnaka or Pafos International Airports. For transport to and from either of the airports, or for getting around the city, we recommend one of the following options.

Kapnos Bus shuttle

For transport to and from the airport, Kapnos Airbus Shuttle runs regularly from both airports to Nicosia. The journey from Larnaka Airport to Nicosia takes around 40 minutes and costs €8 (one-way). From Pafos Airport to Nicosia, the trip takes about 90 minutes and costs €15 (one-way).

If your hotel is located in the city centre of Nicosia (e.g. Classic Hotel, Centrum Hotel, Royiatiko Hotel):

  • Walk from Kapnos station at Kyrenias Avenue to Limassol Avenue Bus Stop 3 (bus stop ID: 435) (5 min, cross Limassol Avenue through footbridge).

  • Take bus 306 (6 min) OR bus 302 (9 min) OR bus 312 (12 min) from Limassol Avenue bus stop to Dionysios Solomos Square (Bus stop ID: 1). Solomos Square is the central bus station of OSEL and these hotels are within walking distance (5-10 min) from the station.

Please visit the Transportation Organisation of Nicosia District (OSEL) at www.osel.com.cy for more details about routes and timetables. 

Alternatively, you can get a taxi from Kapnos station to drop you off to your hotel. The taxi ride to hotels in the city centre may cost €8-10.
