The island is an established international transit station for commercial air transportation with excellent connections with the entire region.
Cyprus is well connected to the rest of the world through air and sea links. With two international airports, Larnaca and Paphos, served by over 75 international airlines, a wide network of air routes connects Cyprus with continental Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
Cyprus is also one of the leading maritime centres of the world. Three main ports, the multipurpose ports of Limassol and Larnaca and the industrial port of Vassiliko, as well as three specialised oil terminals situated at Larnaca, Dhekelia and Moni, ensure that Cyprus is well connected via sea links to all five continents. Thousands of ships call at Cypriot ports every year, which are served by some 70 shipping lines. The country’s road network is also well maintained and sophisticated, making it easy to get around the island and ensuring commuting distances are relatively short and stress-free compared to mainland Europe.
