From January 2017 all tobacco pouches under 30g were banned and EU approved packaging became compulsory, so woke inspired graphics and branding limited to the lowest 25% of the pouch, or cigarette pack. Some manufacturers have withdrawn their less popular brands from the market and there are currently no pouches larger than 30g available in Greek Cyprus.

Large supermarkets have the highest turnover and some use tobacco as a way to get people into their stores, so reduce their prices by a couple of cents. Most small supermarkets and kiosks will give a 3% discount for packs of ten pouches (300g), though they may need a couple of days notice if you want large amounts - and they will demand payment in cash. Always keep your receipts and be prepared to produce them if asked by UK Customs.
Amber Leaf is not sold in shops on the Greek side. It is however available - in 50g pouches - at Larnaca and Pafos airports once you're airside (Old Holborn are also 50g). Prices for tobacco at either airport is higher than in local shops, so unless you must have Amber Leaf, or if space is at a premium, then it's cheaper to buy your tobacco before going to the airport - as you can calculate from the list. I only noted prices for the smallest pack size, however they also stock 500g and 1kg packs.

Smoking facilities at Larnaca and Pafos airports.
Larnaca airport has two smoking rooms airside. They're not signposted, however one is at the rear of the Food Village that's on the right hand side of the main walkway. The other is on left side of the walkway at the rear of Costa Coffee. No purchase is necessary, anyone can walk in and use them. Pafos airport provides a "beer garden" where you can smoke once airside.
Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam.
Lots of Dutch favourites with a limited choice for British travellers. All prices are duty paid and there is no markup at the airport; all these brands cost the same anywhere in the Netherlands.
