"constant public announcements"

(Greece)

Not Verified | A fine welcoming airport with moving belts - walkways - for passengers, an excellent shopping centre however with sales staff that quite a few of them inexplicably do not speak the local greek language. Neither is there any menu in the local language at food galleries and restaurants. Long queues at security check and despite displays for separate EU pax this is more of joke, lines are a mixture of everything EU or non EU, and what is worst are the constant public announcements in every language you can think of, so loud they can be heard in Beirut just like a train station in Pakistan or Cairo. As I said, a fine modern airport, only if they take care of announcements - less volume - and what is worse, the unbelievably expensive price of bottled water. Plain bottled water, not french perfume.

"efficient and professional"

(Cyprus)

Not Verified | I travelled for 2 days from China. I had an accident leaving me with a broken femur and wrist fracture. I received extremely good help from the ambulance service team from aircraft to vehicle which was efficient and professional. Thank you.

"It has seating I would not use"

(United Kingdom)

Not Verified | This has to be the dirtiest, foul smelling, poorly maintained airports in Europe. It has seating I would not use because it was so grubby and carpets that were soiled and smelt. It was like something from a third world country.

"announcements as loud as one can stand"

(Greece)

Trip Verified | My last year's review on this jungle airport was mainly about the constant public announcements in arabic, russian, english, you name it and probably 5% in the local language which is greek. This time, things were far worse, announcements as loud as one can stand, one after the other causing chaos in that you hear something which you don't understand. A train station in Karachi works better. Queuing lines unbelievable and only two officers to check passports, of course no respect for instructions for EU citizens, go as you please! Very very strict security check / prices for bottled water beyond any consideration as expensive as rare french perfume and the government totally ignores complaints about high prices at this airport, not only for water but for food and beverages. Though Cyprus is very cheap as a destination this airport is the sad exception. My flight was delayed, gate 45 the whole carpeted floor was very filthy with coffee or beer stains etc not only was everything filthy but also junk paper here and there, nobody came to clean the place, and to get into the toilet was a real challenge. Such a brand new airport practically totally disorganised, neglected, the carpet on the floor is more of a mess, ever so expensive goodies and nobody reads passengers negative comments. Lastly, the staff in most cases is not local for inexplicable reasons but mainly foreigners from ex soviet with minor knowledge and experience thus giving the impression you are in a neglected third country or ex soviet city.

"his luggage was stolen"

(United Kingdom)

Not Verified | My uncle recently travelled from UK to Cyprus. After collecting his luggage and waiting for transfer outside airport his luggage was stolen. People please be aware as four other peoples luggage was stolen at same time which was reported to police. After speaking to people he was told this had been a regular occurrence, airport security need to make people aware and take appropriate action to ensure this does not happen.

"prices put them to shame"

(United Kingdom)

Not Verified | This looks a nice shiny new airport but don’t be fooled. Even though they are reasonably efficient at checking bags in it all goes wrong once through passport control. The prices for food and drink put them to shame. It is daylight robbery. Also, there are no free water points. Local shops have the big water bottle dispensers in Pernera, yet this airport can’t achieve this simple requirement which is normal in civilised countries. One of the airport officials said it is because all water on the island comes from the sea! Well, that isn’t really an answer is it, more of an “I’m busy comment”. The air conditioning appears to be switched off or very poor at keeping the airport cool at midnight! All in all, it’s poor on a qualitative scale. Given a choice, you wouldn’t use it.

"massively overpriced water"

(United Kingdom)

Not Verified | Absolutely disgusted by the cost of food and drink at this airport. No water fountains for us to refill bottles, forced to purchase massively overpriced water and therefore add further to the obvious problem of disposable plastic. Sandwiches were nearly 6 euros, a so-called medium coffee was over 4 euros and tiny. The food and beverage staff were not friendly. No special assistance over and above just mobility issues so my deaf daughter was forced to wait in queues through security and the family lane wasn't open. My mother who needed mobility assistance was taken away from us by herself causing her anxiety and distress. We didn't meet back up with her until we got to the gate. On the way out through Gatwick we were all allowed to stay together (there were also free drinking water fountains). The special assistance staff (the two men who pushed the wheelchairs) were amazing and the only positive point about this airport.

"miserable, unfriendly staff"

(Luxembourg)

Not Verified | The most miserable, unfriendly staff I have ever encountered. Perhaps they can be reminded that tourists can be a nuisance but they are a great help to the local economy. If you do not hear or misunderstand an instruction, God help you.

"new airport terminal is mediocre"

(United Kingdom)

Not Verified | Armed Police and Soldiers chatting and smoking. The mens toilets were filthy. Air-conditioning useless. Only a few passport desks open. Rip off prices in all food and drink outlets. Departure terminal is just a big boring warehouse. Flight information boards said flight was boarding when it wasn't. Sadly Larnaca's new airport terminal is mediocre.

"volume of public announcements was unbelievable"

(Greece)

Trip Verified | Despite reviews I have read, this was a perfectly pleasant experience. Air-conditioning, very good shopping, though at the main restaurant I was surprised that the menu was not even in the local Greek language and only in English, so an interpreter must be used! Most and I mean most announcements so loud that could be heard in Beirut, were in english language only, and the old lady next to me was constantly asking for translation. The volume of public announcements was unbelievable and more than disturbing. A railway station in Africa would have been better. Lines at security check where some of the private security, do not speak greek were inexplicably long not to mention at passport control with ten police officers checking but no separation in practice of EU and third country passports or IDs. A very good airport however with some details which make it negative.
