For UK participants, direct flights are available from London Heathrow to Larnaka Airport, a 50-minute drive to Limassol, and indirect flights are available via Athens from other UK airports, offering flexibility with departure airports and opportunities to pick up a bargain.
The special offer with Aegean Airlines is open to all runners and non-runners and no special code is required, as all prices will be automatically discounted. The travel period for the offer is November 6, 2017 to March 21, 2018, meaning that the Limassol Marathon race days are included plus a few days either side.
Race Director at the Limassol Marathon, Andreas Spyrou, commented: “We are delighted to have secured special flight rates with Aegean for all international visitors coming to Limassol next spring.
“The offer on direct flights and connecting flights represents a huge saving on fares and we would encourage anyone wanting to ‘run with a smile’ at the brightest marathon in the world to book now.”
