Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Larnaca International Airport.

What to Expect

  • A small, modern international airport with one main passenger terminal. The airport facilities are clean and there is a limited variety of shops and restaurants, including some 24 hour options!
  • Long, slow lines due to inefficient airport procedures.
  • Free WiFi is available. See WiFi in the airport guide below.
  • Economy class passengers can pay to enter the airport’s first class lounge. See our Airport Lounges section for locations and rates.

Where to Sleep

  • Armrest-free metal benches are available landside, or if you have a sleeping bag or travel mat handy, there is some quiet, empty floor space behind a room near the exit doors on the upper level.
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.
