Larnaca International Airport (IATA: LCA, ICAO: LCLK) is the main air hub of the Republic of Cyprus. It derives its name from the city of Larnaca situated 4 km to the southeast from the airport. The second airport in the Republic of Cyprus is located in Paphos, in the southwestern part of the island. Larnaca International Airport was built in 1974 and got its current name in July 2916 in honour of former President of Cyprus Glafcos Clerides. The airport is built near the sea coast and visitors flying into Cyprus get to see the gorgeous site of the Mckenzie beach as they are approaching landing.
