Getting around by air

Ercan airport is about 14km northeast of North Nicosia and is linked to the city by an expressway. Many visitors to the North now fly to Larnaka airport, as the flights are direct and less subject to delays. There are scheduled flights to London and several destinations in Turkey from Ercan airport. All charter flights operate from Ercan, although occasional flights are diverted to the military airport at Geçitkale, closer to Famagusta, when Ercan is being serviced.

Turkish Airlines, Pegasus Airlines and Onur Air are the main airlines that operate regular flights to Ercan, via Turkey.
