Travel to North Cyprus Bookmark and Share

It is not easy to find information on flights to North Cyprus because non of the major airlines fly there.  Another problem is that airlines that do fly there do not use the reservation systems in the same way that other airlines use them and it is not listed in many directories.Travel agents can not find any reference to North Cyprus in their manuals or booking systems.

This is because the United Nations has imposed sanctions on North Cyprus since the war with Southern Cyprus.People travel to North Cyprus for a variety of reason but primarily to visit friends or relations, to have a holiday, to stay at their villa or holiday home, or the many ex-pats after visiting relatives in UK.

Most flights go from Stansted but there are also flights from Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchestser and Birmingham.There are no non-stop flights between UK and North Cyprus. Although there are direct flights but they stop at Turkey en-route to North Cyprus but passengers to North Cyprus stay on the plane. Although prices start at £150 return very few seats are available at these fares and so they sell very quickly.  Usually the price is about £250 return low season and £350 high season. 

Another way of getting there is on Turkish Airlines but you will need to change aircraft at Istanbul. Prices are similar to the direct flights

The roads in North Cyprus are very quiet except when you get near the towns of Lefkosa (Nicosia), Girne (Kyrenia) and Magusa (Famagusta) which have all the usual traffic jams. Car Hire in North Cyprus is cheap and the prices, depending on season are between £11 and £16 per day for a car for 4 persons.There is much to see on the island and a hire car is the best way of seeing it.
