Paphos (Pafos) International Airport is located on the western coast of Cyprus and caters mainly for the holiday industry in that area. The airport has been recently (Nov 2008) updated with a new modern terminal building adjacent to the old buildings. Most air traffic comprises of twinjets such as A319/320/321, B737/757 etc. Cyprus Airways (A320/330), British Airways (B737/A320) & Easyjet (A320/321) are the main scheduled airlines to use Paphos as well as SAS & Transaero on a less frequent basis. The busiest days are Wednesdays & Sundays during the summer months. Spotters must be aware that a military base is attatched to the north eastern area of the airport and should be avoided.

Photo Spot Spot A - Threshold runway 11

Good vantage point for arrivals to rny 11. Accessible by a rough track between the sea and the airport perimeter fence. To reach this point, go to the Geroskipou Plage (Phaethon Hotel) and continue along the coast until you reach the airport perimeter fence (un made rough road).
