Flights to Paphos Airport
(Wednesday, July 4, 2012)
The legend of Aphrodite flourishes around the city of Paphos in this lovely corner of Cyprus. The Greek goddess of rather a lot of things, including love and beauty, is reputed to have risen from the sea around this way and legend still lingers around the sea stack known as Aphrodite's Rock.
Flights to Paphos will deliver you right into the lap of the legend, with the much-visited tourist attraction of the rock, also known as Petra Tou Romiou, within easy reach of the resorts around Paphos and especially to the ones owned by Leptos Calypso Hotels and Leptos Estates.
Paphos Airport (PFO) serves the western half of Cyprus, generally regarded to be the quieter and more sophisticated side of the island.
The growing tourist city of Paphos (also known as Paphos) is around 15 minutes away from the airport. Paphos is gaining in popularity as a holiday hotspot. It is a city steeped in history and boasts many Greek and Roman buildings, plus a smattering of British colonial style.
The large tourist resort of Limassol is best reached from Paphos Airport, as opposed to Larnaca Airport in the east. Limassol is busier than Paphos, though historical significance still abounds in the south coast resort.
Small and charming resorts such as Pissouri and Latchi are also emerging on the tourist radar, and established as a favourite Sea Caves, St Georges and chic Coral Bay continue to lure holidaymakers seeking powdery sand, sparkling seas and just enough energy to keep the pulse pumping.
Spa breaks, water sports adventures, hiking trails in the soaring Troodos Mountains and golfing holidays also ensure that Paphos flights, which take around one to four hours from all European, Middle East and Gulf Area Airports, remain popular throughout the year.
The weather in Paphos in the winter months is cooler and wetter than the hot summer months and flight prices are often cheaper out of peak season.
The main Airlines fly in from and to Paphos Airport are:
Monarch Airlines, EasyJet, Thompson Airways ,British Airways, Thomas cook world, Ryanair, Cyprus Airways, Transaero Airlines, Jet 2.com, Transavia Holland and many more.
