Perhaps it's the home leg on a holiday to Cyprus, offering a return from the sparkling Mediterranean beaches and the thumping bars of Ayia Napa. Maybe it's the next step on a multi-stop tour of the continent, which sees you swapping whitewashed tavernas for the elegant Victorian architecture, post-industrial edginess and acclaimed museums of Britain's 2nd-largest city. Either way, with both direct connections and indirect options, there are plenty of Larnaca to Birmingham flights to pick from.
It should hardly come as a surprise that the best time to book cheap flights to Birmingham from Larnaca is outside of the high summer. Opting to fly in April or October promises some bargain returns from the isle of Cyprus. What's more, it's always a good idea to go searching for seats from Larnaca to Birmingham as early as possible – at least 60 days before take off should do it.
Larnaca International Airport can be found just to the south of the town. It's really well connected by local bus routes, with numbers 429, 425 and 419 all offering regular links to the departure halls from Larnaca Station. It's also easy to catch your Larnaca-Birmingham flights from even further afield in Cyprus, thanks to the dedicated air shuttles that run from the likes of Nicosia, Limassol and even Paphos in the west
It's the charter airlines of Thomas Cook and Monarch that are the mainstays of this route. Opting for these means going direct to the city of Birmingham, which should take around 5 hours from departure to arrival – the time difference of 3 hours means that morning flights still get you on the ground for that full English breakfast. Low-cost carrier Blue Air runs regular indirect flights, with a journey time of upwards of 13 hours.
Getting out of arrivals and into the cutting-edge heart of Birmingham city means hopping on the Air-Rail Link to the dedicated station of Birmingham Airport. From there, there are as many as 8 trains per hour to Birmingham New Street Station, costing just £4 a single and taking under 10 minutes for the ride. Buses on the 97 route connect to the centre of the city, too, while a dedicated cycle track also runs between the airport and the Solihull area.
Once you're done searching for your cheap flights from Larnaca to Birmingham, and you've planned your transfer to the city centre, it's all about looking forward to the cutting-edge museums and bohemian vibes that await in this thriving university hub of the Midlands. From the old depots and artsy emporiums of the Jewellery Quarter to the swish Mailbox shopping centre between the historic canals, there's certainly loads of retail therapy to be had. Perhaps you could top it off with a jaunt to the Edwardian Tea Rooms, or the culture-packed Birmingham Museum?
