Located just 2.5 miles southwest of Larnaca, Larnaca International Airport is the larger of two airports servicing international and domestic passengers on the island of Cyprus.
Larnaca International is also thought to be Europe's 70th busiest airport, welcoming over 6 million passengers per year. The airport uses one principal passenger terminal - with departures operating from the upper floor and arrivals on the lower floor. 16 boarding bridges connect the terminal to aircraft, though shuttle buses are sometimes provided on busier days.
A VIP terminal is also in use for welcoming visiting dignitaries and private aircraft. This secondary terminal is also sometimes used to receive and hold cargo.
Larnaca International - along with nearby Paphos International - was recently the subject of a £650 million upgrade, and will undergo further expansion in 2013 to increase the newly refurbished main terminal's capacity from 7 million to 9 million.
Due to the recent programme of renovations, passengers are able to benefit from increased check-in counters and self-check-in kiosks, new lounge areas and better parking and disabled facilities.
