Paphos International Airport is located in the western part of the island of Cyprus. It is a small airport with only one terminal, popular among the low-cost carriers, including the market flagship Ryanair, for which this airport is a hub.
Paphos Airport is preferred by tourists heading to the west coast of Cyprus, mainly the city of Paphos which is located 6.5 km from the airport.
Also it is convenient for those passengers whose final destination is another resort city – Limassol, located to the south. This is because Paphos Airport is much closer to Limassol than Larnaca Airport, which is considered the main airport in Cyprus.
According to the classification of the International Air Transport Association, Paphos International Airport has a code ‘PFO’.
