Greece witnesses tourism increase

Published on : Saturday, June 19, 2021

Greece is one of the most preferred destinations in the world. The beautiful Mediterranean has always been sought-after by travelers around the world. Greece was one of the first destinations to restart travel, and it is now witnessing an increase in tourism. Greece witnessed an increase in tourism in May with numerous travelers visiting its cities and towns for an unforgettable summer vacation.


According to the Civil Aviation Authority of Greece, international arrivals surged more than 25 fold in the month of May. Last year, the international arrivals number was 14237, while this year it is 383107, which is a significant increase. Earlier last month, Greece set rules for travelers who are looking forward to a treasured summer vacation.


Greece depends considerably on tourism as a fifth of its economy is tourism dependent. The country had suffered a lot during the lockdown last year. The pandemic had halted travel across the world, with countries bringing in restrictions. Greece’s international arrivals had declined to 75 percent last year.


This year, there is hope for the Greek tourism industry, along with other countries. Greece is now experiencing a surge in tourism, and is hoping for a 50 percent rise in tourism compared to last year.
