The key to a smooth journey is good preparation!
At Hermes Airports we follow the governmental health protocols, ensuring a travel experience that offers security and protection to all passengers.
Since the outbreak of the pandemic Covid-19, entrance in the terminal buildings of Larnaka and Pafos Airports is allowed for passengers and staff only. Furthermore, the use of a medical protective face mask is mandatory throughout your stay at the airport, whilst visible signs remind you to keep a physical distance where possible. We have also increased the frequency of cleaning and installed dozens of hand sanitizers which are available for use by passengers and staff.
In recognition of the efforts made to secure a safe travel experience, Larnaka and Pafos airports were certified with the Airport Health Accreditation by ACI World. This program evaluates the protocols implemented during the pandemic in the airports of our country.
As of 1st of April 2021, Cyprus has introduced an updated colour-coded country categorization based on the European Centre of Disease and Control (ECDC), which classifies countries into green, orange or red categories. The grey category is added which foresees obtaining a special permission to travel to Cyprus.

CovTracer-EN is the official contact tracing application of the Cypriot Government aiming to contribute to the reduction of the spread of coronavirus. The app allows people who test positive to coronavirus to share this information with the public health authorities, who are then able to trace the places a carrier has visited and in turn, locate other citizens who have been near the diagnosed carrier, thus acting to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
