Published on : Tuesday, November 7, 2017

Greece tourismGreek tourism season is on growth, as far as arrivals are concerned. According to the first figures for October, it indicates that this increase has not come with a proportionate growth in terms of occupancy rates at hotels. This is defined by the further growth of short-term lettings of apartments and holiday homes.

The data of the Athens International Airport indicated the arrival from abroad grew by 14 percent from October 2016 to 1.35 million, following the 9.8 percent growth in September arrivals to 1.54 million. International arrivals at Athens went to 12.47 million in January-October in total, posting a yearly increase of 11.8 percent.

Also, the 14 regional airports controlled by Fraport Greece shows a 15.9 percent year-on-year growth in arrivals from foreign countries to 1.76 million. Ever since the beginning of the year, arrivals have grown to 20.1 million, up by 13 percent from a year earlier.

All this pinpoints that Greece in last month had an extra 620,000 visitors in comparison to October 2016. However, even though there was an increase in terms of occupancy rates, it was nowhere close to the pace recorded in visitor arrivals, even when the estimated number of Greeks returning from abroad is deducted.
