The new Paphos airport is expected to begin operating in late 2008, Communications and Works Minister Harris Thrassou said yesterday.

Speaking after a visit to the site, he said construction work began in June last year and is expected to be completed around the end of next year, when the airport is set to begin operating, noting that construction work is on course as far as timetables are concerned.
The new passenger terminal will cover 1,888 square metres and will be a modern building of high specifications, providing 760 parking spaces for private cars, 36 for buses and 84 spaces for taxis.

“This project is expected to contribute a great deal to the infrastructure of the country and offer Paphos additional advantages as a tourist destination,” Thrassou said after the visit. He also said passenger services will improve and the new airport will be on an equal par with other European airports.

Larnaca airport, which is also undergoing major changes to improve services and facilities, is due to be completed by the end of 2009.
