BOOK NOW – Greece almost fully booked for 2014!
Greece has seen an impressive 21 percent leap in international visitor arrivals in the first four months of 2014, according to data released by the Civil Aviation Authority. According to Greek newspaper Kathimerini, total arrivals from abroad at the country’s airports amounted to 1.81 million in the January-April period, compared with almost 1.5 million during the same period of 2013. Notably, the largest share of this rise was at Athens International Airport.
The arrivals figure for all Greek airports last month was even more impressive, as the number of tourists visiting the country posted a 33.9 percent rise compared with April 2013. These increases are expected to continue with further growth throughout the Greek Summer.
More into the data, it is particularly encouraging that domestic air traffic in Greece is also showing signs of recovery, with domestic flight arrivals in the first four months of 2014 rising by 9.7 percent year-on-year to reach 1.42 million. Domestic arrivals increased by 29.8 percent in April alone.
Travellers are encouraged to book as soon as possible in order to secure their first choice hotels and dates. Many hotels in Santorini and Mykonos have imposed stop sales for periods between July and September 2014.
