There is a frequent and cheap (€1.50) public bus connection from the airport into central Larnaca, but it is poorly indicated so ask at the information desk if you wish to use this option. There is also a direct Larnaca Airport – Nicosia, Nicosia – Larnaca Airport Bus service provided by Kapnos Airport Shuttle. The journey takes around 30-45min (depending on the traffic and the hour), and a one way ticket costs €8 per person.

There is also in airport in the southwest of the island, near the city of Paphos. Its main carrier is RyanAir and it thus serves low-priced flights to destinations in Europe. Cyprus Airport Taxi Transfers provides transport from the airport with a car seat or booster seat. Make sure you pre book a taxi to ensure availability.
