Renewed Cyprus-Greece Ferry Passage Set to Resume Again May 29

NICOSIA – The Cyprus-Greece ferry link that proved popular when it began again in 2022 after a long hiatus will pick up service again on May 29, backed by subsidies from Cyprus to keep it going, benefiting those afraid to fly or wanting to take a vehicle to Greece.

In 2023, it carried 7,407 passengers and 2,518 vehicles, although at 30 hours it’s far longer than the less than two-hour flight between the countries, which can be cheaper as well, but those preferring the ferry not caring.

First-class single cabin tickets are priced at €73 ($79.35) one-way per person, with roundtrip prices at €146 ($158.70). Double cabins are priced at €68 ($73.91) for a single journey and €136 ($147.83) roundtrip.

First-class four-berth cabin tickets are €63 ($68.48) one-way and €126 ($136.96) for round-trip. Second-class prices are €50 ($54.34) one-way and €96 ($104.34) for round-trip. Airline-style seats are €38 ($41.30) and €76 ($82.61) for those who don’t want a cabin for the overnight voyage.

Officials have said that it also proved particularly popular with students who sought to take or bring back more belongings from abroad and those who are afraid of flying or just want the luxury of a longer trip.
