Updated: 2 months ago

For those who have arrived at Paphos airport and are planning to head straight to the capital - for business or to visit the Northern part of the island - we will tell you how to do it.

There are three options to get from Paphos airport to Nicosia:

  • by taxi
  • by direct express bus
  • by city buses

The most hassle-free option, but also the most expensive - due to the distance from the city, the trip will cost around 120 euros, and it's not guaranteed that every taxi driver will agree to take you. However, it's worth considering this option if you are traveling with several people. The journey will take over an hour.

Express Bus

Departs from the airport to Nicosia without transfers. The journey takes just over one and a half hours, it's better to budget for two hours. Ticket prices: adult 16 euros, child up to 12 years old 5 euros, infants travel for free.

The schedule is not very convenient - a maximum of 4 flights per day, and on Wednesdays only 1 flight, although it is tailored to arrivals and is likely to suit you. It's better to check the schedule on the Kapnos bus company website. Select Paphos airport on the left, Nicosia on the right. Then choose the day of the week on the calendar, and the bus schedule will be available.
