The numbers of arriving aircrafts and passengers in northern cyprus are showing new heights

FAMAGUSTA, FAMAGUSTA, NORTHERN CYPRUS, March 30, 2024 / — With the opening of the new airport in Northern Cyprus a few months ago, doubts were raised. Is an airport of this size really needed? Couldn’t the old airport have done for a few more years?

It is now clear that these doubts were completely in vain. The website has now published current figures that speak for themselves. In the months from August 2023 to February 2024 alone, the number of passengers and arriving aircraft increased enormously. A development that will quickly silence any doubters.

The number of arriving aircraft alone rose by 24% in this 7-month period. Looking at the period from August 2022 to February 2023, 13,524 aircraft were registered during this time. This already impressive figure has now risen to a whopping 16,747 aircraft in the period from August 2023 to February 2024, as published by the airport operating company. An increase of 24% compared to the same period last year.

The number of passengers rose even more sharply: From 1,977,925 passengers in the period from August 2022 to February 2023 to a whopping 2,607,920 passengers in the period from August 2023 to February 2024, an increase of 32% – almost a third more.

These figures make it abundantly clear that North Cyprus is developing into an established tourist destination and the trend is clearly pointing in a direction that allows us to look to the future with confidence. If you look at the individual months and compare them with the same months of the previous year, this positive development becomes even clearer.

For example, the number of arriving passengers in August 2022 was 299,561. In August 2023, 385,223 passengers found their way to Northern Cyprus via Ercan Airport. An increase of 29%. In February 2023, the new Ercan Airport already welcomed 226,108 arriving passengers, while in February 2024 it was already 354,960 passengers. An even more significant increase of 57% in total.

A trend that once again makes it clear that Northern Cyprus is increasingly developing into an established destination and attracting more and more people. Numerous campaigns by airlines flying to Ercan are also ensuring that more people are choosing Northern Cyprus as a holiday destination. Turkish Airlines, Anadolu Jet (now AJet), Pegasus Airlines and the Northern Cypriot airline FlyKibris offer convenient ways to find your way to Northern Cyprus from Germany or other European countries with their route networks.

When searching for flights there, simply entered the abbreviation ECN as the destination airport or Ercan, Nicosia or Lefkosa. Even if a transfer is currently still necessary, the new Istanbul Airport, which is the hub for Turkish Airlines, for example, is a popular transfer destination in itself with its dimensions and amenities.

As an increasingly popular destination for holidaymakers and those seeking peace and quiet, Northern Cyprus also offers perfect opportunities to benefit from this incipient boom. It is also thanks to the major property developers on the island that North Cyprus has developed into a place for the perfect investment or the perfect holiday. AKOL GLOBAL, for example, or NOYANLAR, to name just two of the largest and most stable property developers, have been helping to respond precisely to the needs of incoming tourists and investors for years with their far-sighted and high-quality projects. With the imminent opening of its own German office on the island, AKOL GLOBAL is going one step further and will in future meet prospective German buyers in their native language and provide them with reliable long-term support in German before, during and after the purchase process. This eliminates language barriers from the very beginning and ensures that everyone receives customised, perfect support. In addition, help is provided with bureaucratic hurdles and, last but not least, permanent availability in German is guaranteed. AKOL GLOBAL proves in this way once again that it has its finger on the pulse of the times and is not the leader in the property sector in Northern Cyprus for nothing.
