Transfers vs. Other Ways to Get from Nicosia Ercan Airport

Ercan Airport is located near Nicosia (Lefkosa), the capital of the Republic of Cyprus and of the partly recognized Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. It is possible to arrive at Ercan only with a transit in one of the Turkish airports: this air hub is domestic and does not serve direct international flights.  From here, tourists set off to the airports of Ayia Napa, Girne, Iskele, Karsiyaka, Limassol or can travel to the cities of Kyrenia, Larnaca, or Paphos. 

How to get from Ercan Airport to Nicosia or the other way round

It is around 25 km to Nicosia. In order to get there, one can use the following transportation options: 

— buses of the KIBHAS company. They depart from the airport to Nicosia and other cities of the northern Cyprus from approximately 08:10 to 00:30 every 1-1,5 hours  (specify the timetable for each city separately). The stop is right at the terminal exit, and tickets can be bought in advance on the company’s site or from a driver when boarding; 

— “dolmus” minibuses. They run with an interval of 10 minutes without a stable schedule. Tickets are sold by a conductor;

— taxi, which can be taken on the spot or ordered via the app on the smartphone;

— transfer booked online in advance. 

If you arrive late, it is better to book a transfer in advance or take a taxi: buses stop running by night, and minibuses schedule is unpredictable. 

Transfer vs. Taxi from Ercan Airport (taken on the spot or booked via the app)

Advantages of a private transfer

100% guarantee of the car arrival. You will not be able to use an international aggregator like Uber in the Northern Cyprus (nor in the South Cyprus). One can try booking a taxi with the help of the local app, nTAXI. But the users complain about a long search, an absence of available cars, and complexities when specifying an address. 

Leave the airport as soon as your flight arrives. There will be a lot of tourists wishing to travel by taxi, so you will have to spend some time in a line.  You should not wait for a driver: he/she monitors your flight arrival time and comes in advance.

No need to learn Turkish to book a car. To avoid long queues, tourists are recommended to book a taxi from the airport on the site. However, it is not quite convenient as the booking form is only in Turkish. Kiwitaxi site is available in 5 languages, including English, and an English-speaking support operates 24/7. 

Disadvantage of a private transfer

A bit more expensive. According to local tariffs, a taxi to Nicosia costs 30-50 euro, and to Girne  — 25–30 euro. Transfer to the Northern part of Nicosia will cost 40 euro, and to the southern part and Girne  —  45 euro.  

Transfer from Ercan Airport vs. Bus and Minibus 

Advantages of a private transfer

Travel even at night. Buses do not run after the midnight, and you should not rely on minibuses either: they do not have a stable timetable. 

Get to your hotel without changes. One can get  to Ercan Airport, only with a change. Will you want to make another change (this time from one bus to another) in order to get to your hotel? Transfer goes directly to your destination, and you can have a rest after the flight on your way. 

Much more comfortable. “Dolmus”  is translated as “full” from Turkish. Indeed, this small minibus will be crammed with people. Kiwitaxi means that “you will ride in a comfortable car, and no one will bother you”.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

Much more expensive. One bus ticket costs around 2-3 euro, and a dolmus ticket costs 1 euro.
