Nicosia International Airport (IATA: NIC) is an abandoned airport. It lies to the west of the Cypriot capital city of Nicosia.
There have been some plans for NIC to be reopened under U.N. control as a goodwill measure, but so far neither the Greek nor the Turkish Cypriots have seriously pursued this option. The airport is currently under the control of UNFICYP, and serves as the force's headquarters. Parts of the runway and aircraft hangers are used by UN patrol helicopters whilst another part of the runway has been converted into a makeshift go-kart circuit for use by UN personnel stationed there.
