LARNACA AIRPORT customer review :  16 August 2014 by Robert Marshall    (UK)

Used Larnaca airport (LCA) arrivals on 22/07/2014 and departures 12/08/2014. The 'new' LCA terminal is a world away from the old one. Arrived about 16.30, ours being the only flight in the arrivals hall at that time. Passport checks were minimal. Just about had time to use the toilet facilities (clean) before our baggage appeared on the carousel. Picked our car up and were on our way in 25-30 minutes after arrival. Departure check-in was easy. Arrived in departures about 15 minutes before check-in opened, so no queue and checked-in by pleasant ground handling staff. Toilet facilities pre immigration and security screening were fine. Not a lot of seating in departures pre immigration and security screening though. Short queues at immigration and security screening handled by pleasant staff despite it being a busy period for departures. Lots of shops in the 'new' departures terminal post security and as to be expected, selling the usual range of food and non-food items at very high prices. Plenty of seating. Boarding gate procedures handled by the same pleasant check-in staff. Signage/displays in both arrivals and departures was fine. I'd happily use LCA again.

Great Airport. Arrival on a BA flight from London. Even though the arrival coincided with a flight from Russia, passport control was efficient and prompt. Separate queues for EU and non-EU passengers. Even though we were in a queue with Russians, they were processed quickly. Baggage started arriving a few moments after we arrived at the reclaim area. Departure: Empty check in area - we arrived 3.5 hours before our flight and were checked in without queuing. Security was also empty and we went straight through, even though it was 5pm. Departure area spacious, clean and at a nice temperature. Good choice of eateries and shops. I remember the old terminal at Larnaca - and this is a world away from that. Its a modern efficient airport and a pleasure to travel through.

Lovely airport, pity about the security 'fiasco' and poor organisation of large numbers of passengers departing at similar times. More staff needed and better training of crowd management.

Brand new, immaculately clean airport. Clean tidy directional signs everywhere, walkways, very good restaurants and duty free sales stores. Passport control as best as you can expect, same goes for check in and security procedures. On the negative side: 1) Arrival 15/8 from ATH on time, on a very good Cyprus Airways flight and luggage was delivered almost 45 minutes later though airport was not busy. Unacceptable by any standards. 2) At car rentals nobody spoke Greek and I was asked to sign an agreement only in English which I refused. 3) Most sales staff at duty free and restaurants are inefficient and do not speak the local language which is a disgrace to Greek passengers. 4) Before check in there is very limited seating capacity. Such a brand new airport with such awful seats?. 5) Public address system was full of distortions, hardly understandable.

Clearly this airport is not at full capacity in November, but it was an excellent experience on arrival and departure. Arriving was very easy with no queue for passport checks and less than 10 minutes for luggage delivery. Departing was almost as good, a short wait to check-in but no real queue for security or passports. The departure area is clean and airy with a good range of shops and cafes. Only real complaint is that we were called to the departure gate at least 15 minutes earlier than necessary - and just stood in a queue while nothing happened. Larnaca is much better than many airports I could mention.

I found Larnaca a very fine and functional airport. For our night flight, we had seven counters at our disposal with no queue. Not a big airport but very clean and pleasant. A very good experience.

I remember the old Larnaca Airport well, tThe new Larnaca Airport is fantastic though. I arrived on BA from LHR, and it took me 25 minutes to clear the terminal, from stepping off the aircraft to getting into my taxi. No queues, excellent and clean, easy to get around. I departed on A3 for London Heathrow and baggage drop opened late, meaning people were queuing for some time, other than that no problems in clearing security and the airport has an abundance of shops and eateries. It is also incredibly clean with good toilet facilities too. With plenty of boarding bridges it also means boarding aircraft is much easier. This is easily now one of the best airports in Europe - clean and easy to get around.

Arrivals were great- from plane to leaving airport about 20 mins. Departures a little more problematic. Online check-in not very well signposted and I had stood in a queue for 20 mins. Security was slow, I had arrived just as 3 Russian flights were leaving- airport opened a separate line for EU passport holders which then let the queue flow better. Clean terminal and excellent toilet facilities.

A very bright and airy new facility. Easy and efficient check-in, passport control, and passenger search. Large glass enclosed, panoramic, and comfortable passenger waiting area, affording unobstructed view of runway and other airport facilities. Plenty of shops, but fewer refreshment and eating options. Friendly staff. Only blemish was that there are no public phones which accept either a local phone card which is cheap to buy and easy to use, or a credit card. The only available public phones (plenty of them) accept coins.

First time through the new terminal. We use off airport parking so can't comment on the airport arrangements but there seemed to be plenty of well regulated space for drop-offs right outside, given that it was a quiet day. Nice building: a bit like a small T5 at LHR with an uncluttered and spacious arrivals hall. However, finding our airline check-in desk was a challenge as a computer failure had cut off all the electronic displays at the desks and not one staff member we approached knew where BA checked-in! We found them at the back, around the corner and, once there, the procedure was fast, friendly and efficient. Passports and security checks were just fine although they took longer and were more thorough than at the old terminal; better be safe than sorry though. We then searched for a departures display to keep an eye on the time and found just one, tucked around a corner by the loos. There may have been more but at least this one was working. On to the shops and the cafes. Elegant but extremely expensive, a growing trait in Cyprus regrettably and not all the fault of the exchange rate. I don't think 4 is a fair price for a coffee, nor 6 for a roll and you could beat the prices for most items in the duty free in local shops. Call forward and the bridge to the aircraft were just fine and a marked improvement on the cattle market and bus at the old terminal. Overall? A good start but how will it perform in the holiday season?

Arrived from LGW via easyJet on 30 Oct and flew home on 8 Nov, just missing using the new terminal which looks very good from the outside! Despite the limited, dated facilities at the old terminal I was processed reasonably well both inbound and outbound. Refreshment prices were high but only reflect the corresponding price hikes all over Cyprus since my last visit a couple of years ago. This is sad and I hope it does not affect visitor numbers to this beautiful island.

If your travel plans involve you flying into and out of Larnaca airport, only fly Business. The queues for Economy check-in are impossible and the place is like a middle Eastern market. Check in Business and hot foot to the lounge. Service there is great. Four star rating for the Business facilities. Looked like a one for everyone else though!

Larnaca is not the greatest airport of the world, but ever since a private company took over the management things are getting better slowly. The food court is ok - but don't anything beyond pizza, hamburgers and soda. Seating in the waiting lounge is rather limited and uncomfortable. Baggage delivery at the carousels is a lottery : either you get it in a matter of minutes or it take up to an hour. Looking forward to the new terminal opening soon !

I was in transit at Larnaca airport flying with Cyprus Airways. The transit desk took over an hour to process all the passengers who were flying out, a weary time to stand in a queue even for a Brit. As my onward flight was then delayed for 3 hours I had plenty of time to explore. The toilets were clean, and so was the rest of the airport. However, it was early July and the place was infested with mosquitoes. If you want to lie down for a bit I'd recommend the padded seats in Gate 8 rather than the hard metal ones elsewhere.



Larnaca Int'l Airport review by Geoff Wyndham-Jones

6 November 2007   Customer Rating : 4 Star Rating

Used LCA twice during October, both times arriving on scheduled flights and transiting when no charter or holiday flights were arriving. Thus Arrivals (just a big shed) handled the numbers of passengers well, although baggage took a long time to come through bearing in mind the fact that the aircraft was parked just outside the terminal building. Departures again worked well, with efficient security, and adequate seating and eating facilities once through security. Check-in staff somewhat lethargic, so allow sufficient time to check in, rather than leaving it to the last minute. Generally the facilities are clean and well-maintained and the staff polite.

Larnaca Int'l Airport review by Gary Lowcock

Once you are through passport control to the departures area the airport is not too bad in terms of facilities - easily better than American airports I have used. The place is clean with a reasonable duty free shop and cafeteria. What really lets the place down is the staff who could not be more disinterested and miserable if they tried.


Larnaca Int'l Airport review by David Woolmer

27 October 2003

Must depend who you fly with, we arrived on a Cyprus Airways flight from Heathrow, landing just after two charters from the UK. Time from landing to driving off in a hire car was 55 minutes. Going back, no queue at the Cyprus Airways check in. the downside was the dreadful wine they serve in the bar.

Larnaca Int'l Airport review by Alexey Peshekhonov

Awful passport service - I spent 67 minutes in queue. No clear notices where to go, most departure monitors are out of order. It's even worse than Sheremetyevo-2.
