Record August traffic at Cyprus airports September 11, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in News Flights.

Hermes Airports has reported a record month for passenger traffic.

Passenger figures for Larnaca and Paphos International Airports recorded an all-time high last month, with nearly one million passengers travelling through the two airports in August, an 8.35 per cent increase on August 2006, when additional passengers travelled through Cyprus as part of the Lebanon evacuation.

At Larnaca, passenger figures for August 2007 showed a 13.44 per cent increase on August 2006. Passenger traffic for the year to date is also up 2.23 per cent on 2006 levels. Over the months of June, July and August, more than 2.6 million air passengers, travelled into and out of Cyprus, putting heavy demands on facilities and staff at both airports.

For summer 2007, Hermes Airports has introduced new car parking and set down arrangements, additional check-in desks, new retailing and catering outlets and arrivals and meet and greet facilities at both airports. The upgrades have been made to both terminals, until the new passenger terminals open at Paphos International Airport in November 2008, and at Larnaca International Airport in November 2009, as part of a 622 million euro investment programme.
