Who should you book with, if you haven’t already?

There are loads of UK airports and airlines flying directly to Larnaca, and the vast majority are seasonal.

First things first, we would usually recommend booking an ATOL protected package holiday to this destination.

Reason being, you’ll often get better value for money compared to booking a flight only.

Besides, the final price can be bundled together into one simple booking and include your flights, hotel, full baggage allowance and transfers both ways.

And if it is a holiday you’re after, we tend to recommend the following to our members:

That’s certainly the case if your flight is going to be operated by Jet2, easyJet or TUI, because the ideal scenario is to have the same overarching company looking after every element of your holiday if possible.

For those airlines that don’t operate holidays however, such as Ryanair, it’s worth checking out On The Beach who have a good reputation, and you can often bag an amazing deal.

Keep in mind however that you don’t get certain extras included such as your bags or transfers, so look out for the drip pricing if you do require those extras!

If you haven’t already got a route in mind, it’s worth taking a couple of minutes on each individual website to see for yourself which will be better after taking into account your favourite departure airport, preferred dates, convenient flight times, hotels you like the look of and indeed price!

If you’re travelling around the island and want to stay in different places, or if you just want complete flexibility in terms of where you stay using the likes of Airbnb or Booking.com, then booking your flights and accommodation separately will be your best bet.


So, here’s the popular holiday resorts in order of closest to Larnaca airport first:

We’ve used the most popular holiday resorts as featured by the UK’s largest holiday provider Jet2holidays, but the vast majority of these will also be covered by the other providers, too.

We hope you found this useful, and if you end up booking, enjoy your holiday!
