The easiest way to travel to Northern Cyprus is by air. Ercan Airport is the main airport in Northern Cyprus with daily flights from Europe and mainland Turkey. There are no direct flights from Europe to the TRNC and you therefore have to land in Turkey for a 45 minute stop-over, when in most cases you will remain on the aircraft, before you can complete your journey. Alternatively, you can travel to Larnaca in Southern Cyprus and travel north by road and cross the border. A visa is required, which is free and obtainable at the border.
