At Cyprus Duty Free we are focused on building a company that will operate responsibly, for our team, community, and our planet, not just for today, but also for the generations to come. We are committed to challenge, evolve, and transform the way we have been operating until now, to shape the future of the industry for a better tomorrow.
As a first initiative, we are eliminating all single-use plastic bags from our operation, while offering our customers real alternatives for a better future.
From the 15th of February 2022 operations at both Larnaca and Paphos airports will be removing the single use plastic bags and offering instead quality paper bags along with our existing reusable bags. Our goal is not to simply remove plastic bags but to hopefully reduce the overall number of bags we use by asking ourselves the simple question “Do I need a bag?”
As with many things we face in life, change brings with it challenges, and we thank our customers in advance for supporting us through this transition and in making this positive impact possible.

Cyprus Duty Free has taken a leap towards environmental responsibility with two trees planting events in collaboration with the Cyprus Forestry Department and Cyprus Forests Association. Held near Paphos and Larnaca Airports, we planted 300 carefully selected trees.
Cyprus Duty Free covers expenses for three years, ensuring their growth and well-being.
Cyprus Duty Free is proud partner with Ocean Bottle in our shared mission to clean our oceans from plastic pollution.
Together, we are committed to providing a sustainable solution that offers our customers and staff an excellent alternative to single-use plastics.
When you buy an Ocean Bottle reusable water bottle, you fund the collection of 1000 ocean-bound plastic bottles before they enter the ocean.
Collectors in coastal communities exchange this plastic for money and get access to social resources such as healthcare, education, and financial security.
By choosing the Ocean Bottle, Cyprus Duty Free not only contribute to the fight against plastic pollution, but also enjoy a reusable and eco-friendly option.
Let’s join forces to make a positive impact on our environment and create a more sustainable future.
These initiatives showcase our commitment to sustainability, with more to come.
Our dedication sets an inspiring example for others to follow.
