Larnaca International Airport (LCA)
A small but busy facility seeing upwards of five million passengers a year, Larnaca International Airport (LCA) lies next to Larnaca Salt Lake and is situated just 5 km / 3 miles from the city centre. The airport provides a much-used gateway to the south and the south-west of the island of Cyprus, and is also used as a hub by travellers seeking passage between both Europe and also the Middle East.
Larnaca Airport is continuing to enjoy a period of growth and has recently started a major construction program, which is estimated to be finished by 2013 and will include a terminal extension and 500-metre / 1,640-foot lengthening of the runway. These improvements will increase the overall annual passenger capacity to more than nine million and herald a new age.
Larnaca International Airport has a very basic ground transport infrastructure, with buses comprising the only public transport service available, operated by Intercity. Taxis and hire cars provide an expensive, but more convenient alternative for travel to the city and beyond, being located at the airport's main entrance.
