When taking a holiday on Cyprus many holidaymakers are keen to discover its rich heritage and mythology as well as enjoy the fabled soft golden and white sand beaches.

Visitor Numbers on the Increase
Statistics from the Cypriot Government show that the number of visitors to Cyprus is on the increase. In April 2011 almost 200,000 people touched down for a holiday on Cyprus, considerably higher than the 180,000 in 2009 (2010’s figures were obscured by the ash cloud chaos, recording just 140,000 visitors for the month).
The majority of these visitors came from Britain with Germany and Russia contributing a large number too.
“A Unique Holiday Destination”

“In a lot of ways Cyprus is a unique holiday destination, where cultures and influences collide to offer a landscape and atmosphere that is bristling with intrigue.
“It is just as easy to make the most of the lively bars and restaurants that drives Limassol’s busy tourist culture as it is to discover the natural wonders of sites like Aphrodite’s Rock in Paphos.
Plus, with improved transport links available, getting around the island to witness these many different holiday attractions is considerably easier.”
As a result of these promising tourism numbers Jet2.com are making their flights to Cyprus from Newcastle in 2012 available already, allowing holidaymakers to book early.

“We have noticed a steady increase in our customers heading to Cyprus as we reach the summer and expect this continue. We also feel that, if this year so far is anything to go by, then 2012 could be just as popular for Cyprus.”
