2015 to close on a pos­i­tive note

Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

Di­nos Kakkouras, Pres­i­dent of the As­so­ci­a­tion of Travel Agents (ACTA, has said that those in­volved in the travel in­dus­try be­lieve that this year’s tourist sea­son is set to close on a pos­i­tive note.

Kakkouras said that ini­tial es­ti­mates of a 25% drop in tourist ar­rivals from Rus­sia seem to have been over­turned in that the re­duc­tion is now es­ti­mated to be around 20%, with an an­tic­i­pated fur­ther de­cline.

In ad­di­tion to this, there is a sig­nif­i­cant in­crease in the num­ber of tourists mainly from the UK, Ger­man and Swedish mar­kets but also from France, Hol­land, Poland, Is­rael and Greece - in spite of the coun­try’s prob­lems – which has given the tourist in­dus­try a boost.
