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 Paphos International Airport.

What to Expect

  • A small single-terminal international airport, served mainly by seasonal commercial flights. The airport’s facilities are clean, and limited shopping and dining options are available.
  • WiFi is available. See WiFi information in the airport guide below.
  • Economy class passengers can pay to enter the airport’s first class lounge. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for locations and rates.

Where to Sleep

  • Although no specific sleeping spot was mentioned, reviewers who spent the night here described their overnight stays as safe, pleasant and hassle-free. Overhead announcements turn off after the last flight, so you won’t have to worry about noise, but the air-conditioning is a bit strong, so have a travel blanket or sleeping bag handy to keep warm!
  • 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.
