    Cyprus Flights 11th Jun 18 at 11:25 AM
    Can anyone recommend where to get the cheapest flights to Cyprus please? This isn't until next year so am I likely to get a better deal booing now or waiting until last minute?
    Thanks

    start on the wikipedia page for the airport in Cyprus you want to fly to and see who operates the route, then you can check when the airline(s) release their seats for your time period and also how much competition there is on the route
    If there are 6 flights a day you can likely hold off for a deal but if there is one flight a week you may be best booking when released (as long as you are happy with the price)

    Which Airport?


    I presume you mean The Republic of Cyprus, not the Turkish Northern Cyprus (?)
    Paphos is in the west and Larnaca is in the east.


    Where in the UK (?) do you wish to depart from?

    Find someone who can get you indulgence flights on the Brize Norton to Akrotiri route. £25 each way normally!

    Failing that I've always found flights to Cyprus to be relatively expensive due to a lack of competition.

    Monarch folding certainly hasn't helped.

    Don't expect Cyprus to be particularly good vfm either.....joining the EU took care of that.

    The Cyprus taxi !!!!! have a well earned reputation, so think about your airport transfers carefully.

    I don't think Larnaca would be cheaper than Paphos, especially once you have factored in the transfer cost.





    You didn't answer my other question!

    If you hire a car, Limassol is within easy reach of Paphos airport straight down the motorway. It will probably also work out cheaper than a taxi.

    Not sure if you have sorted this out but Indulgence Flights are quite easy to get onto. Go onto Defence Intranet and search RAF 2768 Form and fill it in. Then call Defence Passenger Reservation Centre on 0306 789 4800 to see which flights are available.

    Of course these flights aren't guaranteed but for my flight to Canada which only cost 55 GBP I thought this a minor inconvenience and my flight back only costing 89 CAD I thought its a lot better than paying 655 GBP.

    Luckier still to find a flight back.
