For the first time in their history, Cyprus airports reported passenger traffic above one million during the month of October, according to a Hermes Airports press release.

From the 1stto the 31stof October 2016, 738,275 passengers made their way through the Larnaca International Airport, while during the same period, 270,983 passengers used the Paphos International Airport.

In total, 1,009,258 passengers made their way through both airports, an increase of 31.5% compared to the same period last year.

The countries that contributed the largest increase in passenger traffic during October were Russia, Greece, the United Kingdom, Israel, Switzerland and the Ukraine.

It is particularly encouraging that this year’s lift in passenger traffic is continuing into the months that traditionally have lower traffic. This trend appears likely to continue during the winter months, something which shows that it’s possible to beat seasonality and promote Cyprus as a year-round destination.
