Two countries in one day!
Like all airlines offering flights to Northern Cyprus, Cyprus Turkish Airlines stop over in Turkey before flying on to Ercan North Cyprus, so you get to visit two countries in one day! In fact, it’s so easy that you don’t even need to leave the plane, as in less than sixty minutes you’ll be taking off again for Ercan airport North Cyprus. The flight takes around five hours including the stop over, so it won’t be long before you will be stepping out into the North Cyprus sunshine at Ercan airport.

Cyprus Turkish Airlines have really made great strides in their customer service recently, and one of the main successes has been the high standard of in-flight catering!
