Flights to North Cyprus… we hope that this will help to make your flight booking easy!


Flights to North Cyprus airport, Ercan (pronounced ‘Erjan') are via a touchdown in Turkey. The main carriers are Turkish Airlines, Pegasus Airlines and, possibly, Onur Air in High Season – search for their websites. All carriers make a stopover in Turkey and, in some cases, you remain seated whilst passengers embark/disembark and the plane is re-fuelled. You may spend approx. 45/50 minutes on the ground.

Alternatively, you will change planes and have a pleasant but short time in the modern airport of Istanbul – lots of shops and time to stretch your legs – this is welcomed by some travellers. Ground staff deal with your luggage and it arrives at your final destination. When you change planes, the onward transfer locations are well signed, usually in red. Please do check the stopover situation.

Most flights to Ercan arrive late evening or very early morning - the transfer time is only 35 minutes. There are, as yet, no on-airport car hire companies at Ercan, but we can recommend, (and arrange – just ask) a local car hire company. This is a family run concern, Karapasha & Son who we know well and who will provide a taxi transfer from the airport to Villa Manzara's front door! If you know the island then they are happy to drop your rental car at Ercan airport (no charge made for this) so you can self-drive. . . . but only if you know exactly where the villa is situated!! We can provide you with a route from the airport to the villa if you feel confident. On return, you can self-drive or arrange a taxi transfer.

Alternatively fly to Larnaca in South Cyprus. Flights to Larnaca are direct, and available from a wide range of UK regional airports. The transfer time to Villa Manzara is 1 hour 30 minutes - an approximate timing, but the total transit time from UK is about the same whichever route you choose to fly. The border crossing from South to North does not present any problems. Your driver will advise and help you because he ‘knows the ropes' ...they do this daily!

To search for flights to Larnaca, either visit your travel agents or search such websites as Lastminute, TUI, Thomas Cook, Wizz, Cobalt, BA and Easy Jet, Jet2, Blue Air, Norwegian and others.

Our recommended car hire company will also collect you from Larnaca. NOTE: he charges a discounted price for Villa Manzara guests – this depends on party numbers and assumes you will rent a car from them.

Important note: Villa Manzara cannot be accessed until 16:30 on your arrival day and must be vacated by 09:30 on your day of departure unless you book an additional day. Please keep this in mind when booking your flights. We do try to be flexible where we can (just ask) but our property managers sometimes have to turn the villa around completely for incoming guests on the same day. Arrangements can be made for your suitcases to be stored if required.

Don't hesitate to ask if you have any queries. Your holiday is important to you, also to us, so we will help and advise wherever we can.
