A state of the art 656.3 Million Euro Cyprus airport, the largest infrastructure ever undertaken in Cyprus, will open its doors to the travellers on Tuesday 10th of November, following an impressive opening ceremony on Saturday, 7th November 2009.

The old Larnaca Airport terminal was built 35 years ago, after the Cyprus' only airport in Nicosia ended up in the occupied territories due to the Turkish invasion. New Larnaca ultra-modern terminal can handle passenger traffic of up to 7.5 million people per year and if necessary, its capacity can be extended to up to nearly 10 million. It is four times bigger than its predecessor and is located just a couple of miles away on the coast.

n a speech during the inauguration of the new terminal Cyprus President Demetris Christofias said:

"our goal is to develop our country to a bridge of peace and trade, economic and intercultural development in the region"

He said that new Airport would play a tremendous role in positioning of Cyprus as a future key transit point.

President pointed out that opening of the new airport is important not only for tourism business in Cyprus but has a colossal impact on overall Cyprus infrastructure and economy.

EasyJet and Cyprus Airways will be welcomed by the new terminal already on the 10th of November and by the 17th of November they will be joined by the other airlines.

Officials hope the new airport will also attract foreign investment to Cyprus.
